Konkan Explorers Reviews
★★★★★ Important contribution to the uniquely great nature! I was in Goa at the beginning of February 2024 and contacted Kokan Explorers as an individual, unfortunately there was no tour for me as an individual at first, but was then contacted at short notice that a tour would be organized after all. The arrangements were great and everything went according to plan. I had booked a 2-hour kayak tour in the morning. There were five of us with 2 guides. It was a wonderful and peaceful morning! The guides were very kind and helpful, they could tell us a lot about the nature and the animals we saw: red ants, kingfishers (kingfisher!!!), bee-eaters, white-bellied sea eagles, fiddler crabs, various herons and co! The small lessons about the ecosystem are a great contribution to nature conservation and the increasingly endangered habitat. The guides also collected a bit of garbage on the tour and promoted understanding. After the tour, there was a small breakfast with hummus and bread and something to drink. The second employee took photos and in the afternoon we received a personalized link with the photos from the tour! For me, the tour could have been longer. ;-) Thank you very much for the impressions and your important work!!!
★★★★★ Had a wonderful experience! The instructors were experts and made the activity easy to learn. We kayaked to a charming mangrove island with thousands of tiny crabs. Viraj and the team shared fascinating insights about the mangroves and island formation. The activity concluded with a small picnic on their river deck while watching the sunset.
★★★★★ I booked the 4:30 pm tour with my teenage children. The online booking process was very easy and the team is very responsive on WhatsApp. We received a link with the exact location of the tour which was accurate and helpful. At the beginning we were collected by 2 of the crew and taken to the pontoon by boat. We received a warm welcome and some instructions about kayaking. I have never been in a kayak before and I'm also not a very sporty person but that was no problem at all. I was paired with Vikram, one of the staff members, my children were in another 2-seater and there was another lovely couple who was also sharing a 2-seater. If you are an experienced kayaker you can go solo. Since the tide was just coming in, the water wasn't high enough to go into the mangroves but we were told that in advance and happy with it. It was still a fantastic experience, so many birds to see. We had a short break on land to see the fiddler crabs and learn about the mangroves before heading back to the pontoon. I was glad, I had Vikram with me, as now we were working against tide and wind. Vikram being a total gentleman asked me to leave the paddling to him on the last bit when he noticed I was getting tired. Back at the platform, we were offered hot and cold drinks and had a lovely snack of khakra with hummus and papaya. We were offered to have a little go on the SUP which was fun too. Finally, it was time to leave. The crew was very friendly and professional as well. I can only recommend a trip with them.
★★★★★ Went for kayaking on Chapora. Very informative and helpful guide in Viraj, who apart from instructing the kayaking bits, explained a great deal of the flora and fauna of the mangroves. Had a nice picnic at the end of it as well 🙂
★★★★★ The best adventure experience you can get in Goa! This was our second time with Konkan Explorers and yet again, we received exceptional service and hospitality from their team. We are a couple with a 3-year-old daughter and thought this time we wouldn't be able to do any adventurous activities as we had our daughter to take care of. And boy, we were wrong! 😂 Our daughter might have enjoyed it way more than us! Their experienced team made sure our daughter was safe all the time and she was able to experience all the activities with us, which included - Open water swimming (with a life jacket on), Stand-Up Paddling (sat on the board while one of the team members paddled) and sat on the kayak while I paddled through the backwaters of Morjim. It truly 'had been' (in 2016) and 'has been' (this year, 2024), the 'highlight' of our trip to Goa! Thank you Konkan Explorers team! Special thanks to Glefi, Shraddha, Vikram, Viraj A and Viraj B. ♥️
