We stayed overnight on a two bedroom rice boat & cannot rate it highly enough ! Victor our pilot was so well informed of the nature around us with a keen eye spotting birds & animals we would never have seen without him. Sonu & sandy waited on us hand & foot & made some delicious food. The bedrooms were... More

We did this trip last year and it was stunning one thing I would say is ask for the 3 bedroom boat as it is truly stunning the pick up was easy just up from our hotel and when arrived on the boat it was great stunning rooms and the lads who look after you could not do any more... More

However the lads from our party chose the fishing trip with Johns boat, 5 adults and 1 child, worked out about £7, whole afternoon fishing, transport, beer, and equipment and bait... More

Did this last year. This year didn't disappoint. The crew look after you very well. They move location if you are not catching fish. I only caught a puffer fish last year and it jumped free. Caught loads more this year. I had great fun. I love the camaraderie amongst feow fishermen and fisherwomen and the crew.

Positive: Its a nice trip to the snorkeling area with views of the ocean and dolphins. They had a good supply of beer, specially since there were several children and teetotalers on the boat. Goa water is warm and wonderful at this time of the year. Negatives: The tour company was very short of snorkeling gear on a very full... More

Although this is advertised as a fishing trip and fishing rods and bait (prawns) are included.. there's not a high chance of catching exciting fish. We tried 3 spots with no luck before we went to an area that had heaps of mackerel (everyone was catching a lot of mackerel). The staff were very kind and friendly and we enjoyed... More

We went to book a number of tours we were interested in. Were recommended Johns by someone we met at hotel. The shop a stones throw from hotel was rarely open. When we did find it open the young girl lacked any knowledge of the tours, and any desire to help. We tried to book at least one day trip,... More
