This extremely popular tour starts off by an experience you will never want to let go off.
The boat cruise takes you gently down the river Mandovi along the city of Panjim, After this unforgettable experience you will get to see the famous Dona Paula Bay, Then you will pass by the Adil Shah Palace which was the first building of Panjim built by the Sultan as his summer palace and which housed the Goa Secretariat until a few years ago. The tour also takes you by road to see the Mae de Deus Church of Saligao, the Immaculate Conception Church, you can absorb a panoramic view of Panaji city from Altinho hill-top and then visit the Maruti temple at Panaji.
The Boat Cruise his is an hour long cruise which takes guests out on a leisurely sail down the River Mandovi from the Santa Monica jetty in Panaji. While the vessel sails serenely down the river past the beautiful Adil Shah Palace that was once the first building in Panjim City. This was the summer palace of the Sultan which was then used by the Viceroy of Portugal and finally by the government of Goa as its Secretariat. Now that a new Secretariat is in use on Porvorim Hill across the river Mandovi, the Adil Shah Palace will be turned into a cultural centre with art galleries and concert halls, etc.
While you sail down the river local boys and girls treat you to some Goa's best known folk dances, the dekhniand the fugdi. They sing mandos and finally give over centre stage to live musicians or a DJ and the guest can then sing and dance and generally make merry. This cruise is a huge success with people of all ages, men, women and children.
The Cruise then takes you past the Panjim riverfront past the jetty and old colonial buildings on past the Promenade with its lovely tree lined avenues past Miramar where you sit and watch one of Goa's spectacular sunsets. You can see the spread of the Mormugao Port and the mass of the Aguada Fort and as the shadows lengthen you find yourself transported back in history to the time when all visitors who landed on these shores loved Goa so much they wanted to possess her.
