The Goa-based kayaking club, Goa Kayaking, will conduct two training programs in April in association with Goa Tourism (GTDC) and Drishti, the largest professionally-run lifeguard service in Goa. Drishti will provide all assistance and safety services. The ninth Introduction to Kayaking and Training Program 2013 will take off from Vasco (Hollant Beach) from April 1-4, 2013 while the Panaji program will kick off at Vainguinim beach from April 5-8, 2013. Both programs are open to adults and children above eight years who can swim. Goa Kayaking has been conducting these training programs since 2009 during the summer and Diwali holidays. So far it has undertaken eight such programs. They are conducted by highly experienced water sports professionals and accredited water sports instructors. Those completing the program will be entitled to a free membership at the Goa Kayaking Club for a year and can sign up for their numerous kayaking expeditions conducted every weekend and public holidays throughout the year. Those who join the program will be provided with all equipment, flotation devices, kayaks, and paddles along with instruction sessions from experts. Goa Kayaking regularly conducts expeditions along the coast and in the rivers and backwaters, to explore the pristine mangroves, bird sanctuaries and the varied sights that Goa has to offer. These trips are environment-friendly, leaving absolutely no trace of the visits.

Vasco-based Goa Kayaking specializes in kayaking and canoeing excursions along the coast, rivers and backwaters of Goa. To sign up for the programs, call Prakash Alfonso (9422056037) or email goakayaking@gmail.com. Details of the program are available at www.goakayaking.blogspot.com
