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.

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.
