Water Sports in Goa

Water Sports in GoaThe stunning beaches of Goa are known as much for their picturesque beauty as for the myriad of water sports facilities they offer. The azure waters of the Arabian sea lure adventure buffs with the prospect of exciting water sports ranging from windsurfing to parasailing. The credit for transforming the tranquil beaches of Goa into watersports zones goes to Englishman John Lucas who descended on these beaches in the 1970s. Lucas' passion for windsurfing rubbed off on other tourists who gradually took to the water sports in Goa in large numbers.

Dinghy Sailing

In contrast to the rigorous sport of windsurfing, dinghy sailing provides for a relaxed outing in the seas. Dinghies are 15-feet long crafts that easily accommodate three to four people. Though the thrill of windsurfing is missing, dinghy sailing is perfect for families wanting to surf the seas at a leisurely pace.


One of the most enthralling water sports, Parasailing means floating high in the sky with a parasail. The parasail is ususally attached to a speedboat with the help of a long rope. As the speedboat traverses the placid waters, the parasail lifts the person into the air. The Taj and Bogmalo Resorts offer parasailing facilities.


Essentially a surface water sport, windsurfing requires stamina and physical strength on part of the surfers. Using a sailboard attached to a sail, the surfer skims the waves by precariously balancing himself to the changing currents of wind and water. The Dona Paula beach is regarded the perfect venue for windsurfing among the Goa beaches.

Water Skiing

Water skiing involves traversing the high seas in speedboats. As these high speed boats skids through the waves, one feels a rush of adrenaline up the spine.
