Goa Jungle Adventure

Goa Jungle Adventure organizes canyoning (outdoor extreme sport, not a safari or sightseeing) tours in the jungle of Goa for both beginners and experts. Canyoning basically includes trekking, abseiling, cliff jumping, swimming and walking through river gorge. A minimum jumping ability (from cliff to deep natural pool) and good swimming skills is required. The trip starts in Palolem (South Goa - Margao 1 hour, Panjim 2 hours, Calangute/Baga 2 hours 30 by road). The participant has to be in good health (fit for outdoor sport activities and not overweight bmi <29 ).

This is an exciting activity in beautiful, isolated surroundings, run by a well trained & organised group. There are different grades for different levels of experience. Reasonable fitness is necessary, and confidence in water.
We followed the course of a young river down the rocks, sometimes wading, sometimes half swimming, sometimes abseiling, and sometimes jumping into the pools - maybe 3, 6 or more metre jumps (if you dipped out of a jump, there is assistance to help you down). Wetsuits, harnesses for abseiling, & hardhats provided.
Was a memorable day, with a small group of 7, and 3 leaders (I think 1 of these was training).

Butterfly Beach

Reviewed By ayu p - Bali, Indonesia

We went to Butterfly and Honeymoon beach by boat on the Sunset Dolphin View session from Palolem Beach. This remote island was beautifully awesome and the view was nice. Besides the island view, we also enjoyed our boat sea view on the way, which is breath-taking. We managed to see dolphins, fascinating sun sets, and feel the calm air. What a nice place to spend sunset.
