Date:
25.03.2015



Panjim, March 23: With summer holidays round the corner and time to enjoy some  adventure and sport,  Goa Kayaking Club along  with  Goa  Tourism  and  Goa Tourism  Development  Corporation  (GTDC) launch  another  edition  of  the much loved  kayaking  training camps.


The training camps are being held at Vasco, Hollant bay from April 1-4, 2015 daily from 7 am. To 11 am and at Vainguinim beach from   April 5-8, 2015 daily from 7 am. To 11 am.


The kayaking programs conducted during the last   6 years have proved to be popular and have helped to a very large extent in raising the awareness of the general public in saving and appreciating the fragile environment and the marine/ river eco-system.


The regular exploratory kayaking trips into the mangroves have given an opportunity to people who have lived all their lives here in Goa, but never had a chance to see the wonderful interdependent riverine flora and fauna, at close quarters.


These teaching and training programs are unique and the only opportunity for adults and children of Goa, interested to learn kayaking first hand, instead of the exorbitantly priced courses being conducted in the lower reaches of the north at Rishikesh and the Kulu valley.


The  Goa  Kayaking  Club   have engaged  the services of   an international  trainer along  with  their  own  personnel to conduct  the  summer  training camps.


Those interested in registering for the training camp can contact   Goa Kayaking Club 9422056037/o832 2541715 or e-mail: goakayaking@gmail.com  or www.goakayaking.com. Registrations are open from age 8 and above.


The GKC  is  also conducting  Moonlight Kayaking from April 2-6, 2015 at St Jacinto Islands.  All trips start at the San Jacinto Island, Sancoale and end at the Cortalim Ferry Jetty, Cortalim.The duration  of the trip is 2-3 hours.


Trips start on April 2, 2015 at 7.30 pm,April 3, 2015 at 8.00 pm,April 4, 2015 at 8.30 pm, April 5, 2015 at 9.00 pm and April 6, 2015 at 9.30 pm.


This is an opportunity for Goans and visitors to the state to enjoy something different -a silvery night of quietude on the broad silvered Zuari which is an uplifting and near spiritual experience!
                          
 
 Shri. Nilesh Cabral, Chairman  of  Goa Tourism  Development  Corporation (GTDC) said, “Kayaking  in Goa is  getting very popular and more and more Goans want to experience  the  thrills  of  paddling  in a  kayak.”


“Because of their range and adaptability kayaks are useful for outdoor activities such as fishing, diving, wilderness explorations, search and rescue. As such we would  like to encourage people keen on adventure and  water sports to learn Kayaking and enjoy it to the  fullest,”  Shri. Cabral said.
