They say that when you are in Goa, you are bound to spot a dolphin or two, even if you are not looking out for them. The many number of beaches in this state and the indomitable presence of the Mandovi River always make you feel close to our marine friends. One may not quite appreciate the idea of a mushy closeness with a shark or whale, but the friendly dolphins are creatures we have all come to fondle (in our dreams). |
Goa tourism information guide gives you vivid details about spots where you can sight dolphins. You cannot, of course, expect to catch a dolphin from the shore unless you have the eye of a hawk (since the dolphin is not going to swim all the way to the banks). One has to reach out to them via boats or cruises.
Also, amongst the dozens of Goa’s beaches, only a few are recommended for dolphin watching. Each beach has a different build and the salinity of the water also varies. The beaches which are most congenial for dolphins are the ones where you are recommended to go. Varca beach is extremely popular in this regard. Cavelossim Beach also witnesses a mammoth rush of tourists intending to photograph the lurking mammalian creature. Ferries and boats are available at these beaches. You can hire one for a modest sum to get up, close with the dolphins and hope for some rare photographs. Other beaches like Agonda, Calangute, Anjuna, Baga, Palolem and Miramar are also renowned for serving as idyllic dolphin spots.
As you leaf through the Goa tourism information guides, you will easily find contact details of cruise companies. So, if you wish to spend money on a cruise, you can relish the sea a little longer and increase your chances of gaping at the dolphins.
Cruises are also organized on the rivers of Mandovi, Chapora, Zuari and Sal. While one can take every step possible to reach out to the dolphins, yet wildlife spotting is a matter of fortune and serendipity. At times, you are simply unlucky while sometimes you are amazed at the opportunity which presents itself of its own accord.
Still, it is recommended that you plan a Goa trip during the friendlier months between October and March to increase your chances of spotting dolphins. The turbulent monsoon season is not a good time for such an excursion since the rough sea can make it difficult for you to spot a dolphin.
