    Try the water sports at the north goa beaches, avoid going thru the hotel desk since they charge u a little more, you can always bargain the rate with the local vendor on the beach.

    Tip : You are sure to get a discount from 20-50% if you bargain with the water sports guy as you walk the beach.

    Water Sports you can indulge in,
    Dolphin chase on a Motorboat
    Jet Ski
    Parasailing
    Banatube boat ride
    Dolphin cruise
    Water Ski
