Day Trip

Prepare yourself to be fascinated and mesmerized with the unique beauty of The Chapora River. Starting from Chapora port, which traces its history to the 16th century, your all day cruise commences on board a one of a kind house boat that adds to the rustic feel of this experience. While on your boat ride catch a glimpse of the nearby villages, churches and farms that help you get a clear picture of the simple yet beautiful life of Goans.

As you go further away from Goa’s backwaters and head towards the sea, you can spot amazing dolphins swimming in synchronicity with the waves of the pristine Goan waters. While enjoying this astounding view, treat yourself with a unique fusion of Goan cuisine. For a better experience we recommend you occupy the upper deck of the house boat in order to maximize your Chapora river experience.

What is a house boat?

A house boat is a floating structure designed to be used as a residence, often including typical home amenities such as kitchens, bathrooms, and ample floor space. These structures differ from boats designed for transportation or sport in that they are often modified in ways that limit their ability to navigate water and are usually moored. Some houseboats even lack motors and are designed only to float, not to move. It is possible to live on a houseboat in the ocean, but the tide makes these houseboats move constantly, so still waters or gentle rivers are generally preferred docking sites.

Dhanyavad Atlantis itni badiya samey dikhane ke liye. Meri wife dino tak wo houseboat ki charcha kare bina so nahi pati thi. Bahut hi acha laga. Khana itna acha, boat itna acha, app log bhi kitne ache the. Machliya, girjaghar aur chote chote gaon ko dekhke hume itna acha laga. Fir zaroor aayenge!!

The houseboat is designed so well and is so aesthetically in sync with its surroundings. My parents and I absolutely loved it. Dad stayed on the upper deck for the entire duration of the trip, he loved it so much. We spotted dolphins munched on some amazing food and viewed some pretty Goan villages on the banks of the river while sipping chilled beers. Thanks Charlie for the great pick!

A must try for every romantic out there with a partner who he or she loves and adores. I booked a trip to Goa for my wife and me to spend our 5th wedding anniversary in. Was referred to Charlie from the hotel reception we were staying in. Booked a houseboat trip as suggested by him and thank him so so much for giving us memories to last us a life time. Great job Atlantis Watersport, we will miss you guys!

What a beautiful experience with my beautiful wife Megan. The houseboat was just like a 5 star hotel and the views were stunning. Food was great and the complete service par excellence. We were picked up and dropped home as well. Keep up the good work Atlantis and we’ll be back sooner than you expect 😉

This was fun Charlie, let’s do it again. My bro enjoyed a lot, you were right  The food was great and people also. Saw many Goan villages that I didn’t know about also. I’ve been visiting Goa for 20 years now and this was a completely unique experience, one I did not have before. Thank you friend, see you next year!

Main husband ke saath is boat pe rahi. It shaandaar mosam tha aur dhaasu boat bhi. Khaani itna swadisht ki mere pati ne mujhe ghar jake aise kisam ka khaana banana ke liye kaha. Itni machliya aur doosre vibhin prakar ke cheezey dekhi. Mujhe toh bahut hi maza aaya and koshish karungi firse aane ke liye. Chukriya Atlantis!

Just like last year, thank you Charlie for telling us to take houseboat trip. It was very nice. Beds were so comfortable and sun tan on upper floor was great. Food was surprise and we loved it. Safety was good and the boat captain was very nice also. We book this trip again next year with friends for sure!
