• Trip introduction

    Head to the golden beaches and warm ocean of Goa for an entirely new experience. This one hour session with World Paddle Association instructors teaches you the basics of paddle boarding. Once you know how to 'walk on water', any ocean, lake or lagoon is yours to explore.

    You'll start in a learner's lagoon, where the water is calm and shallow, so that you can focus on keeping your balance and paddling forward. After that, you're a legitimate member of the worldwide community of stand-up paddle boarders!

    NOTE: Paddle-boarding timings are from 10:00-17:00 hrs, but the duration of your session will only be 1 hour.


    Your paddle-boarding session takes place at Mandrem beach, which lies about 16 kms from Baga. Mandrem beach is a quiet beach in the north of Goa, with peaceful clear water, white sands, and a creek in the sand that ebbs and flows with the tide. It's so quiet that even the shy Olive Ridley turtles come out to lay eggs here during the season. It's the perfect place to spend the day. While your paddle-boarding session takes one hour, it's a great idea to carry your essentials for a day spent away from the crowds at this idyllic spot. Who knows? Maybe you'll spot a turtle or two!
