Loved it!! We opted for the 2.5 hour long Spike's river paddle mangroves magic kayaking trip - couples premium package in the monsoon season. It was one of our best experiences in Goa, hands down!! We were lucky to see otters, stork billed kingfishers, brahminy kites, purple heron, oysters and crabs among other life in mangroves. Even the rains were a delight during kayaking. The whole ecosystem of mangroves was mesmerizing. Mr. Ketan is a patient and knowledgeable instructor. Even the kayaks seemed to be of great quality and easy to balance. The owners of Goa kayaking were quite responsive through the whole booking process and even later. The chilled beer offered by Ketan at the end of the trip was a cherry on the cake! Overall, it was relaxing and exciting at the same time. Would recommend anyone visiting goa to definitely keep this on their itinerary.

Prakash gave us instructions and left us in the hands of Satish his guide with big heart. Apart from the beauty of the river and it’s birds we found a cow trapped in the mangrove trees and almost drowned. We, the two girls from Bulgaria and Satish decided to save the cow. It sounds easy, but was quite scary as the cow was frightened and anxious and it took us two more hours and an additional trip to find a machete and go back to cut the brunches. Funny though in the middle of all this fight was the doubt our insurance could cover injuries by cow in a river :) 4 hours later that looked like 24, we saved the cow, got back exhausted, thirsty and hungry and Prakash surprised us with “village lunch” you eat with fingers: fish, rice, chilly, few salads, drinks… And he refused to received any payment for this generous lunch, being foreign tourists would care about a local cow. “You did your good deed saving our cow, now I have to do my good deed feeding all three of you.” India at its best!
Thank you. Namaste.

We had a wonderful time kayaking in Spike's river. Ketan was very helpful and answered all our questions. He was flexible with timings and arranged a tour for us at a timing that was convenient for us, as we had a flight to catch the same evening. The guide who came with us was very kind, professional and also took many photos and videos of ours! Overall, a peaceful experience and a good workout for those arms! 💪

We loved it! Ketan and Shankar took great care to explain everything and make sure that we had a great trip on the river. All the communication and directions were perfect. The experience of seeing over a 100 Fruit bats take flight from the trees is one we'll always remember plus Shankar's knowledge of the wildlife.
Make sure that you do this!

Kayaking is something one should experience atleast once in their life and a MUST DO during the Goa trip.The tour operator was very welcoming aand friendly. He provided us with proper instructions along with safety measures. The instruments used were properly washed and sanitized. The activity was done on time as the operator had already done the preperation. A professional accompanied and monitored us throughout the trip.
Taking back great memories with us. Looking forward to come back soon for the experience all over again.
Thank you, Ketan. It wouldn't have been such a great experience without your guidance.

We had an amazing time together with Ketan from Goa Kayaking. The 2.5 hours of unforgettable experiences. Beautiful sights, light exercise and a host sharing all his experiences across multitude of adventurous sports. We were glad that we did this and didn’t imagine earlier that it would be such fun!

Kayaking trip organised by Mr Prakash turned out to be the highlight of our Goa tip.
A very memorable experience and I would highly recommend this to everyone planning a trip to Goa.
A good 2-2.5 hours of kayaking though the mangrooves spotting some beautiful birds along the way.
It takes around 5-10 mins to get used to moving in the kayak and it is easy to naviagate though the water.
I felt safe and very looked after throughout.

We booked this trip before arriving at Goa.
Mr Prakash is very prompt at replying to emails and gave us all necessary details to plan this trip.
Clear instructions were provided before trip started and the equipments were all in good condition.

Who says Goa is all about partying and beaches.
Try this kayaking tour with Prakash and Purushottam who accompanied us in the backwaters and mangrove tour in kayaks and it was so refreshing to see the land from the river side. Everything was organized well from timing to refreshments during the tour and wet wipes and even a beer to celebrate at the end of the tour!!! We had fun and will definitely try their other tours in our next visit to Goa.
