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.

Where will the house boat dock at for the night?

The house boat will dock at Aldona, one of the most beautiful villages across the world.

What are the highlights for this trip?

Bird Watching, Crocodile Spotting , Fishing (with the help of our advanced systems of ‘Fish Finders’ which will help you locate the fish and also give you an idea of how big and deep they are). Undoubtedly, Aldona with its surreal beauty becomes the main highlight of the trip.

Booked an overnight boat trip with Atlantis Watersports for us four friends. We just got done with college and wanted to explore Goa in a more unique way. The boat-house was insane, the design, comfort and amenities were awesome! And the memories, experiences and photographs we got from it are unique in every way. Thank you Atlantis for making our friends jealous 😉

Maine apne mata pita ke liye house-boat trip book kiya tha unke 25 shadi ki saalgirah par. Unhe Goa mein Atlantis Watersports ke saath is trip pe bahut anand aaya. Bilkul 5-star hotel ki tarah tha, khaana swadisht aur bahar jeev-juntu bhi anek prakar ke dekhe. Shukriya Atlantis mere parents ko itna khush karne ke liye!

It was great experience, Goa’s water is so beautiful and clean and animals are so rarely seen. Boat was so nice and clean and comfortable. My wife and son and his wife enjoyed greatly. Thank you Atlantis Watersports!

On our ride through the dense mangrove forests with some site seeing and gorging over delicious sea food for dinner and traditional Goan food. I enjoyed fishing especially with the up to date equipment Atlantis had to offer. I was really impressed with the equipment on board and how professionally the entire trip was conducted. Keep it up!

My children and I came across an advertisement for an overnight boat ride in the Mandovi river by Atlantis and then met with Charlie who is the owner of this company. I was worried about the space since my child is 11 years old but there was enough and more space on board and I must thank the staff for being child friendly. They kept Pia engaged through bird watching, crocodile spotting and the highlight was the dolphins swimming near the boat.

Our 25th wedding anniversary was spent on the backwaters of Goa! Yea it was as blissful as it sounds. We wanted something romantic and Charlie without hesitation suggested a house-boat ride on the Mandovi. My wife loved it as we just lay back under the stars and reminisced about our younger days! Top job Charles, see you soon.

Bravo Charlie, thank you for the awesome time! Single mother of two beautiful children in their teens, was on a much needed vacation with my little ones in sunny sunny Goa when we heard of Atlantis Watersport at a restaurant nearby. Booked the house-boat trip with them and spotted crocodiles, birds and other beautiful animals and plants on the banks of the river besides the lovely food and comfy stay. Love love love everything about it, will book it again for sure

On a work visit to beautiful Goa, our company gave us a day off to relax and soak in the fun, so to speak. We did exactly that on an overnight house boat trip with Atlantis! It was a truly magical experience. The beautiful pollution-free night sky overhead, the delicious food and the pretty plants and animals sightings along the way, made for the perfect end to a busy week! Thank you Atlantis Watersports.

: Danka Charlie! This was the best time I had ever! My parents booked this trip for me and my boyfriend. Charlie is a close family friend and suggested this trip to me and my parents. We had a wonderful time, never had I seen Mandovi river like this before! The house-boat is so pretty and comfortable! Will come again for sure x

We came to celebrate our honeymoon and were pleasantly surprised since Charlie and his team had got a cake placed in our room and flowers! My wife was really happy and keeps narrating this incident to everyone. We enjoyed our ride through the mangrove forests sailing by some ancient sites and enjoyed the food. The evening was rather romantic sitting in the open deck under the bright stars.

It is the best time I had ever. My husband bring me to Goa for first time and take me on this overnight cruise. The food was beautiful and ride was smooth. The crocodile watching was the best as it was my first time watching. Thank you Atlantis for the great time!

On a family holiday with our seven year old we booked online with Atlantis. The entire team on board was very professional and child friendly starting from the food and drinks everything was looked after perfectly. We enjoyed the sail through the mangrove forests and my son was very fascinated with the crocodiles, specially the birds sitting like statues on the crocs.

My entire motive going on the overnight ride at the Mandovi river was fishing, and I must say I managed to catch hold of one of the biggest fish I have ever caught since I started fishing, my father was super proud of me but the secret was the advanced fishing equipment I was using which the professional staff offered me on board. Such an adventurous ride through the mangrove forests and hidden sights, topped with amazing sea food. Loved it!

The Mandovi house boat ride was undoubtedly the most surreal stay I have had in a while. It took us sailing through some hidden ancient sites which one was not even aware of and Charlie had ensured the entire Team is aware and well trained. Crocodile spotting was the highlight for me as it was very challenging spotting them in the marshy land.

I’m an avid bird watcher and was taken by surprise when on our ride through the river we managed to spot some majestic birds in the dense green mangrove forests the Atlantis team on board was very professional and knew the names and helped spotting some other wildlife around. We relished the traditional Goan breakfast which was served.

My family and I visit Goa almost every year and have been wanting to go on an overnight houseboat ride for a while but have been very worried about the hygiene and safety on board but after meeting with Charlie we were convinced that Atlantis was offering nothing but the best. The ride was smooth, well organized and the team on board was very well equipped, we had no problem communicating with the team as they knew Russian as well. Bravo guys!

Thanks to this excursion we really saw all the beauty of Goa! Before this trip I was attracted only by the beaches and passive rest, but after this walk everything changed. That was incredible day! I recommend this trip for everybody.
