The Goa backwaters along the Mandovi River offer a tremendous experience of the real natural Goa. The mangrove-lined banks of the Mandovi River are engulfing and endearing with a rich fauna, flora and natural beauty. These calm waters inhabit the shy but not-so-gentle reptiles in the slow narrow creek. Near the Cumbarjua village, still untouched by the modern times, the narrow creek enters the overwhelming mangrove jungles. The Cumbarjua canal connecting Zauari and Mandovi over a 15 km long stretch offers an overthrowing view of the majestic crocodiles. Get camera ready and capture the riveting creatures in their natural glory.
A Goan vacation is incomplete sans the exhilarating activities for a complete Goan adventure. This tour is like a time travel back to the real Goa with the cruise in the backwaters where you can spot the crocodiles along the Cumbarjua canal sunning themselves on the muddy canal banks. The cruise travels between the Chorao, Thivim and Quepem islands. The cruise also takes you close to the Dr. Salim Ali Bird Sanctuary, for a scenic spotting of a wide variety of birds.
Recommendation: Wear comfortable clothes as per your individual choice. Avoid flip flops - slip on water shoes is the ideal footwear as it grips really well in the water. Alternatively, you can also choose to put on strap on sandals. Don’t miss your sunblock, sun glares and hat.
Note: Remember to never feed crocs, it is illegal to feed them. It is essential for safety that the crocodiles do not associate the boat with food and maintain their distance.
