    Sunset Cruise on Mandovi River


    The river Mandovi flowing into the Arabian Sea is the pride of Goa. This fresh water body is a beautiful creation that adds much beauty to the capital city of Panjim and the areas of Betim and Verem on its other side. Originating from a cluster of 30 springs in the Western Ghats, River Mandovi flows for a total of 77 kilometres before meeting the Arabian Sea. This river is also known for the beautiful Mandovi Bridges connecting Panjim to Porvorim.

    A spectacular view is the new third bridge known as Atal Sethu, which you will see well illuminated at night.  Panjim city looks incredibly amazing from the cruise. You’ll notice the terraced hills and brilliant architectural building close to the shore. This panoramic view of the city is marvelous. We at Travel Adventures Goa present to you a sunset cruise on the waters of the river with a complete local flavor.

    Your funfilled hour begins:

    If you plan on going on the early trip you will be amazed with the view of the river while boarding the cruise itself. The sun kissing the waters and the skies is a mesmerizing site on this sunset trip. The Mandovi River is filled with blissful waters and mangroves on either side at the start. Mangroves are plants that play an important role in protecting the environment. The cruise is bustling with energy.

    There is local live entertainment on board throughout the journey. Enjoy the Dekni, Kunbi (Konkani folk dance forms) and Corridinho (Portuguese folk dance) on board. The DJ will also entertain you with other genres of music to keep those feet tapping. This cruise also provides an apt platform for quick site seeing. Catch a glimpse of the Adil Shah Palace, various decked up floating Casinos in the river and the majestic Marriott Hotel. Enjoy snacks and drinks which can be purchased from the counter onboard the cruise. This is the prefect cruise for groups and families where you can relax, chat, eat, drink, dance and make merry on the perfect waters of the Mandovi.
