The serene and peaceful waters of the the llha de Grande located in the middle of the Arabian sea have made it the “Blue Gold” of Goa as far as tourism is concerned.
Approx 80% of the tourists that visit Goa insist on going to Grande Island not only to enjoy the Marine life, but also to get, “I was there” feeling when they go back home.
Your 1st leg of the Journey starts after your board the “Sea Fearers” / “Wooden Cruise” boats on which you are served Beers/ Soft drinks/ Water and a light snack while you catch the Dolphins dancing about like crazy in the sea all around you. We also show you famous attractions like, “The Asia’s 1st Light house, Fort Aguada Jail, Billionaire’s Palace and others while you sip and enjoy the waves!
Did I forget to mention that the Indo Pacific Humpback & Finless Porpoises Dolphins are the rarest of their kind and found nowhere expect on the Isles of Treasure Island?
After about an hour you set foot on one of the most exotic and ancient Islands called llha Grande, where a Portuguese Merchant ship filled with gold had sunk in the 14th Century.
Who knows? You can get your share of “Gold” by “Snorkeling” near the island. The Snorkeling gear and life jackets are provided to you free of cost. With the help of our instructors, you near to “Snorkel” and go on a treasure hunting adventure to find the, “Real Gold” of Grande Island, “Coral, Fishes, Flora and Fauna”.
You can also try your luck at fishing and the catch differs accordingly to your fishing skills!
On Monkey beach, we then treat you to a Barbequed buffet lunch of Fish, Chicken and Veg cuisine! After you have had your bounties full and had the life of your life, you can view the beauty of “llha Grande” one last time before you step aboard our wooden cruise boat.
Get you Snorkeling mask, become a treasure hunter and Let’s Go! To Grande Island!
