Like the name itself suggests, watersports are adventure activities involving water as a major prop. Watersports demand a high level of physical stamina and are fun for everyone – regardless of how good or bad you are at them. The best thing about watersports is that they can be taken up as an individual or a group activity. Watersports are particularly popular in beach areas and river banks where the water content is high enough to support all kinds of activities. The most common watersports available at most beachside and river destinations in India include swimming, Canoeing, Angling, Diving, Sailing, Jet Skiing, Catamaran Rides, Paragliding, Parasailing, Kayaking, Scuba Diving, Water Skiing, Snorkeling, Wind Surfing, Speed Boating and Deep Sea Fishing.
It is surprising that, despite having one of the longest indented coastlines, India has not been a traditional favorite when it comes to watersports. However, the past 5-6 years have seen a major surge in Watersport-centric tour bookings for India. If you happen to be a huge fan of adventure watersports, you will be delighted by the sheer range of Watersports based tours available in India today.
Watersports are particularly popular in Goa, Kerala, Orissa and Karnataka. Talking specifically, Goa is still the best destination if you want to try all available watersports in the course of a single trip. The beaches in Anjuna, Baga, Calangute and Aguada are full of local service providers who offer excellent watersport activities at reasonable rates. Kerala is another favorite and if you’re not lounging on a houseboat in Alleppey, we’d suggest you put your swimming trunks on and head for some exciting jet-skiing in Kumarakom. Most destinations favored for watersports down south are naturally blessed with all kinds of diverse water bodies such as rivers, canals, streams, rivulets and lagoons, besides the vast ocean. Up North, the cool locales of Uttarkhand provide the perfect backdrop for rafting and angling. Moving a little offshore, Lakshadweep is another unearthed gem that is home to virgin canyons and crystal white beaches. It is also intensely private and can easily club 2 themes – honeymoon and watersports – together.
