Goa Tourism : Things to Do in Goa - Sterling Holidays


Parasailing This involves flying by means of a special parachute called a parasail, which is towed by a speedboat via a 300-feet rope. The parasailor takes position on land attached to the parasail harness, and when the speedboat takes off, he or she takes just one or two steps ahead and is swiftly lifted into the air by the parasail.

Jet Skiing

Jet Skiing The most adventurous water sport in Goa is Jet Skiing. The sport is very popular among tourists and sets their adrenalin rushing. Jet skiing requires a jet powered water scooter that is accelerated by a powerful engine.

Water Scooter

Water Scooter For those who love to feel the ocean waves splashing across their face while rushing through water, water skiing is just the right option. Water scooters accommodate two people at a time and provide all the fun of a motorbike at sea.

Banana and Ringo Rides

Banana and Ringo Rides Banana and Ringo rides are the latest additions and the most delightful of water sports in Goa. The entire family can go on a Banana ride, trying to balance, and manoeuvre a giant inflated banana-shaped float, often flailing into the water! Ringo rides are for individuals, who can go adrift on inflated rings that are tossed and turned by choppy waters.


Windsurfing Windsurfing combines elements of surfing and sailing. It consists of a windsurfing board, usually two to four metres long, powered by the wind. Dona Paula bay is considered an ideal location for beginners.

Dinghy sailing

Dinghy sailing Dinghy sailing is a popular water sport in Goa. It is almost like wind surfing but does not require as much effort as wind surfing. The gentle winds of Goa are highly conducive to sailing in these 15-feet long sailboats. Again, Dona Paula is one of the best places to try this sport.

Scuba Diving

Scuba Diving While underwater visibility in Goa is limited, the waters teem with a wide range of fish species and coral that you must not miss. The shallow depth of the continental shelf limits diving to 24 metres, greatly reducing risk of decompression sickness. The waters around Grand Island are ideal for diving; popular diving sites here are Suzy's Wreck, Davy Jones Locker, Sail Rock, Turbo Tunnel, Surge City, Uma Guma Reef and Bounty Bay.


Swimming The waters around Goan beaches are warm and mostly safe, making swimming the most welcoming, accessible sport around.
