Overview

The trademark of our endeavour is to propose a rich yachting experience in associating cruises and nautical sports. An overriding interest is placed in engaging in a responsible outlook of proximity towards social and natural dimensions. Our two main vessels, designed in New Zealand especially for the Indian environment, present for our activities an excellent blend of versatility, performance, and safety.

Generally, the cruise takes the passengers to a certain point in a river or the sea, from where the program of excursion using different equipments (kayaks, SUP etc.) Is launched. Then, the passengers attended and guided by the crew, return to the main vessel and enjoy a cruise back.

Each trip is customized according to the wishes as well as the physical and technical skills of the passengers. We address the need of beginners with approachable programs.

Besides, our long practice of expeditions and adventure activities is suitable for the more demanding sessions with well-trained passengers.

Altogether it participates to make Konkan Explorers unique in India.

Packages

Whichever formulas chosen, the passengers will be welcomed with a drink followed by a general briefing. Different aspects of the stay will be approached and the passengers will participate to devise the program under the technical guidance of the crew. The trips and cruises we organise are from 75 minutes. Each formula offers a different set of experiences. As such, please note that besides cruising, the possibility of indulging in diverse related activities like kayaking, SUP, or sailing, which are the trademark of Konkan Explorers, is available from the 3 hours trip formula. For a shorter trip, we propose a cruise on modern fiber Yachts. A satisfying and enriching moment in itself! Please feel free to contact Poonam for any specific requirements.

In whatever formula you choose, the Konkan Explorers team will work along with you to ensure a memorable experience.
