A pleasant way to spend a thoroughly enjoyable evening in Goa is to take the ‘EXCITING EVENING ONE HOUR BOAT CRUISE” from the Tourism Jetty, below the Mandovi Bridge, Panaji Goa.
A tastefully decorated cruise boat, takes the guests for a lovely ride down the river Mandovi past Adil Shah’s Summer Palace towards the Arabian Sea at Reis Magos Fort from where one can get a panoramic view of -- the Grand Fort Aguada, majestic CABO – the Governors Palace, the sprawling Miramar Beach and the glorious sun setting over the vast Indian Ocean for the sunset cruise.
The atmosphere on the river boat is festive. Guests are welcomed on board by the friendly compere who from time to time fills you in with details of well known landmarks on the shore while advising everyone to let their hair down, have a drink and get into a mood for the program ahead that is “Fun for Everyone” - fun for the young and fun for the young at heart.
The DJ now takes over starting with the welcome song for the kids to dance to.
This is followed by the welcome dance – the dekni – the immortal saga of a girl’s endearments and the romantic boatman’s reluctance, which is so captivating.
This dance is followed by the DJ playing the latest Hindi & English tracks. He also played different tunes of different eras to please the crowd. There is a round of dancing for the couples in the crowd.
Soon it is time for the second dance – the harvest dance or kunbi dance which depicts the process of farming – sowing, growing, the bountiful harvest and the celebrations of the same. Colorfully dressed farmers in their traditional kunbi clothes – dance their graceful way into your hearts.
The DJ then continues playing tracks for the gents to dance to. This is followed by a break from the program, giving everybody a chance to refresh themselves, recharge or cuddle up taking in Goa by night on the river.
The program is back on with a colorful & exciting Portuguese dance – the corredinho that is performed in colorful costumes and to the beat of the triple clap that has everybody clapping.
The DJ then plays his last set of songs for only the ladies to dance to, followed by a round for everyone.
We have a Bar & Snack counter on the middle deck which caters to the needs of the tourists. We provide all sorts of alcoholic & non-alcoholic drinks. Snacks, fast food items are also provided.
Then cruiser heads towards the historic Mandovi bridge where it gently re-docks. What makes the trip really enjoyable is not only the program but the attitude and the services offered by the staff who are always around, helpful, friendly, courteous and full of bon-vivant.
