Moonlight kayaking in Zuari in Apr

BUSINESS LINE, MUMBAI | 13 April 2013 13:33 IST

Goa-based kayaking club, Goa Kayaking, in association with Goa Tourism and Development Corporation (GTDC), will conduct a limited edition moonlight kayaking programme this April.

Kayaking in the moonlight is a unique activity in India, with Goa Kayaking being the only one to offer it so far.

Nilesh Cabral, Chairman of GTDC, said, "Moonlight kayaking on the Zuari is a very special activity and we encourage everyone to participate in it.''

Moonlight kayaking will be offered only for five days, daily between April 24 and 28.

It will start from Cortalim Ferry Jetty and end at the San Jacinto Island in approximately two hours from 9 p.m. to 11 p.m.

Prakash Alfonso, Director of Goa Kayaking, said, "We have chosen these days since April 25 will have a full moon and will make for a well-lit night. It will be perfect for midnight kayaking. Although we say two hours, kayakers enjoy this so much that it goes on till midnight. We will be conducting only one trip per day and limiting the number of participants to 12 pax per trip which is available at Rs 2,500 a person.''

Participants will be provided with all equipment, flotation devices, kayaks, and paddles along with instruction sessions from experts.

Vasco-based Goa Kayaking specialises in kayaking and canoeing excursions along the coast, rivers and backwaters of Goa. It also conducts training programmes since 2009 during the summer and Diwali holidays.
