Goa Kayaking's Moonlight Sonata

Moonlight river.

Moonlight river.

Down the moonlit river, I sail with my soul alone.

The glimmering water dances across my paddle, it sings to me songs of the unknown.


A hundred shimmering fish swim by, their fins forged of gems and jewels from the night sky.

Silver trees on either side, their ethereal leaves whisper and glide.

Glistening whorls ripple into place, across my kayak their translucent lines trace.

Forevermore shall I sail this stream, and ever will live, this ethereal dream.


Lightly paddle as you glide in the silvered darkness of the night!

Goa's Zuari river is one long, broad, silvery road where the moon is your guide and you the driver!

Experience and feel the silvered silence!

A timeless and treasured experience, brought to you again, by Goa Kayaking!
