Nerul River Expedition No.4

Goa Kayaking's Nerul River Expedition No.4 took off from near the Sinquerim jetty next to the famous Coco Beach on Sunday november 08, 2009. Excellent weather wonderful flat waters and the serene surroundings made for an unforgettable paddle up river on an incoming tide. We visited places in the mangroves along the left bank which had huge colonies of nesting birds, literally stared at birds on the low lying mudbanks who probably saw a boat for the first time in and about their habitat! Saw some wonderful sights from the water and most of all enjoyed the serenity and tranquil nature of the trip with only the swish swish of the paddle as we gently floated along. Mitaxi Mehta with her 7 year old in a kayak was the sole woman on this trip.The 5 km. float drew an enthusiastic response and ended for lunch at the riverside Restaurant Aah Goa for a sumptous bbq buffet lunch.

Kayaking is a safe and eco freindly activity and GK hopes to extrend the facility to both the GK members and general public/tourists alike.

The next expedition is planned in the Zuari river on Sunday, November 15, 2009 from San Jacinto Island, Sancoale to Cortalim bridge head. Expeditions are planned for every Sunday and holiday in different places and different waters around Goa and Karwar. customized expeditions can also be arranged on weekdays as required.
