Step into the River Carnival at the iconic Santa Monica jetty just below the Atal Sethu in Panjim, anytime of the year to experience the magic of the Goan Carnival. One of Goa’s pioneering river cruises - The Santa Monica also fondly called ‘The Legend’, is a part of the fleet that sets sail from the River Carnival.

The experience includes a river cruise (that is for approximately for 1 hr) and the carnival village; making it the perfect idea for a quick getaway beyond the beaches of Goa. Along with the sun, sea and wind, you get a glimpse of extra-ordinary historical sights and treasured wonders of this tiny yet mesmerizing state.
