Unleash the adrenalin junkie in you, and bargain with various tour guides for the price mentioned in the table or lower. But please note, with the exception of White water rafting all water sports are shut during the monsoon due to the prevailing winds and rough seas. Nevertheless, don’t be disheartened my fellow readers. This is the perfect opportunity for you to start researching and planning your next holiday to Goa.
