Konkan Explorers offers a friendly, safe and meaningful way to connect with Goa’s rich natural landscape. They conduct experiential tours on the Goan waters, with a  focus on giving close attention to nature-oriented nautical activities like Yacht cruise along with Kayaking, Sailing and Stand up paddling. The goal here is to provide an outdoor experience with utmost safety.


Started by husband and wife team, Pascal and Poonam Ribo in 2012, Konkan Explorers derives its name from the rugged coastline that falls between the mountains of the Western Ghats and the Arabian Sea. In keeping with their reverence to the area, they endeavour to ‘promote soft ecological impact nautical activities, to weave a more proper relation with our environment’. 


This Goa-based nautical tour group offers two elegant 10.5 meters long modern fibre boats, Red Mangrove and Stoa. Built by Fiesta Yachts in Goa and Maharashtra, and designed in New Zealand specifically for the Indian environment, each vessel comes equipped a canopy, ample seating and an electric marine toilet while a solar installation provides the power. In addition, the group offers a number of stand-up modern sit-on-top kayaks, stand-up paddles, a sailing dinghy and a motorized dinghy, each hand picked for their safety and performance. The Konkan fleet allows you to go comfortably off the beaten tracks whether upstream in narrow river bends or in the sea. 


Guests may select from a number of customized tours to explore Goa’s mangrove forests and rivers that have been registered as an UNESCO World Heritage Site and selected as one the eight “hottest hot-spots” of biological diversity in the world. Tours start from 75 minute trips to a full day, with each option offering a different set of experiences.
