What does snorkeling mean?
Snorkeling requires you to wear swimming goggles with a snorkel i.e. a breathing tube, and a pair of swimming fins that allow you to swim on the surface of the water while facing your head down and still be able to breathe. It is a fun activity for family and friends to indulge in, that lets you explore the vibrant ocean floor.

Is there a difference between scuba diving and snorkeling?
Yes, there is. Snorkeling enables you to breathe on the water surface with your head turned towards the water, while scuba diving lets you breathe underwater.

How safe is snorkeling?
It is extremely safe as it encourages people of all ages to participate.

Does snorkeling require me to have special swimming skills?
Though a good swimmer would be more comfortable in the water, it is not necessary to have any special swimming skills as such.

Does snorkeling require special equipment?
Yes, namely three things: 1. A face mask which enables you to watch the marine life without wetting your nose and eyes, 2. A Snorkel allows you to breathe on the water surface while your head is facing down through a curved hollow tube that is fixed to your mouth, and 3. Swimming fins are artificial webbed paddles that fit on your feet like shoes and assist in swimming effortlessly.

While snorkeling, can I wear my contact lenses?
Indeed you can, however make sure to fasten your face mask carefully onto your face so as to avoid it filling with water.

Will I be able to go underwater with my snorkel?
Yes, you can with a deep breath. It is not uncommon for seasoned snorkelers to go to the ocean floor on a big gulp of air and pump out water from their snorkel’s hollow breathing tube with a powerful exhale once on the surface.

Is there any favoured time to snorkel?
Yes, bright sunny days are the best as the sunlight improves water clarity bringing out the vivid colours of the sea bed with its beautiful corals and marine life.

How do you insure safety while snorkeling?
At Atlantis Watersports we employ certain safety practices that assist beginners as well as experienced snorkelers. One of them is by limiting snorkeling groups to make sure every snorkeler gets one on one time with our instructors.

Is it necessary to be an experienced snorkeler?
No, it is not as our trained personnel have the expertise to cater to beginners as well as experienced snorkelers.

What is included in the fee?
A. The fee of our Island Trip includes all activities mentioned in its itinerary like, meals, snorkeling, snacks, drinks and local taxes.

How long does it take to reach Grande Island?
The time needed to reach the snorkeling site is approximately 1 hour.

Besides snorkeling what else can I do on the trip?
There is plenty to do besides snorkeling like, relaxing on the boat, sipping on some beer by the sea under shade, taking a dip in the sea and sunbathing, to name a few.

What time does our journey begin?
We embark on our journey from the boat jetty around 9 AM.

Is there anything in particular I should carry on this trip?
A towel, a pair of comfortable shoes with good grip (flip-flops not advised), sunscreen and sunglasses. If you are prone to sea sickness or think you may get it, we advise you to take a pill to counter it prior to us leaving the boat jetty.

Does the trip include lunch?
Yes, it does. Along with our Goan style buffet and barbeque (Chicken/Fish/Veg) we also provide an unlimited supply of beers, mineral water and soft drinks.

How do I keep myself from accidentally choking on water?
In case your snorkel gets filled with water, don’t panic, ensure you’re on the surface of the water and the snorkel is above it and then exhale powerfully to clear the water from it.

Can I snorkel even though I can’t swim?
Yes, you can. We will fasten a life jacket onto you that will help keep you afloat at all times.

What type of equipment is needed for snorkeling and do you provide it?
Yes, we provide the following equipment: life jacket, snorkel, face-mask and fishing equipment.

How long a drive is it to the boat jetty?
It is usually between 15 to 20 min depending where you stay in North Goa.

Is there a 100% guarantee that I’ll catch fish?
There is an abundance of fish in the chosen fishing spots, therefore there’s a 99.9% chances you will catch a fish.

Will I see monkeys on monkey beach?
No, this is just a name given to the beach.

What is the highlight of the entire trip?
The highlight of the trip is snorkeling and the fact that Grande Island is the only place for snorkeling in Goa.

Smooth, well arranged trip good job Atlantis! Got picked up from my hotel at Baga beach at the time fixed, no wastage of time. Started our island trip on jetty to the Grande Island en route saw pretty dolphins, light house etc. Love fishing, did bottom fishing and enjoyed snacks and beer before heading to boat for Monkey beach for more fun!

Big kudos to Charlie and his team at Atlantis. They have such well planned, sorted out packages that are everything you could ask for. These guys sure know their job and make you feel like less of a client and more of a friend. The food they whip up is equally brilliant and makes you wish your appetite was larger.

My family visit to Goa included three generations and none of us were left disappointed with this trip. We had done other amazing stuff with Atlantis Watersports as well but wanted to visit all the old famous sweet spots of Goa and this covers all of them. The Atlantis team is so friendly and considerate and know their stuff thoroughly.

Forts, churches, spice plantation, good food, a cruise at sunset with the company of dancers – need I say more? Charlie sure knows how to show you a good time. I had just one day’s time in Goa and Charlie advised this package and it was brilliant! For anyone heading to Goa, do check it out! Again, thanks a ton Charlie.

I was very happy with all aspects of the service provided and would have no hesitation recommending Atlantis they were particularly attentive to appropriate detail for e.g.
During our Island Trip they provided my 3.5 years old kid with life jacket onboard on my request as I was bit concerned. The trip was awesome with good photogenic site seeing from the sea. Dolphin sighting, Snorkeling, Fishing, BBQ Lunch offered was upto the mark. Will book my next trip with them soon.

Booked Island Trip for our group of 10 people in May 2013 as suggest by my friend and I had a great experience on booking online with Atlantis Watersport. To my surprise I got a discounted deal on their website without even asking their customer support. The price offered was within our budget range and I was very pleased with the entire process. The trip was great, friendly people around, spotted some dolphins and naval ships on the way to Grande Island. Would recommend this service to all my family and friends.

Pehle baar Goa aye the mien akele. Snorkeling karne ko maan toh bahut tha parantu bhay bahut tha. Himmat jutake miene Atlantis ke sath booking ke aur apne scooty unke parking mien laga de. Instructors ne pure jankare aur aadesh diye sath dilasa bhi diya apne suraksha ke bare, life jackets pehna de gaye. Grande island jate hue bahut se nazare dikhe aur khana, pani, fal bhi diye gaye the. Scuba diving ka anubhav bahut yaad gar rahe ga!

Having spoken to Charlie before arriving in Goa, he had convinced me and my hubby to book three trips namely; Snorkeling, Scuba Diving and the Island Trip! Concluding our vacation with the Island Trip, we couldn’t have asked for any better way to bid farewell to this magical place. The seafood, fishing and dolphin spotting were all great experiences. Kudos to the entire Atlantis Watersport team and especially Charlie for delivering on his promise 

Monsoon in Goa has a charm of its own and despite the rains being almost torrential, you never want to be in-doors. I have once before visited the Basilica, but as a photographer, the rains just made it more spectacular. Cruising on the ocean in the rain with the sun sinking into the water is an experience like no other.

Had booked Island trip with Atlantis Water sports, Goa in Sept 2014 as I was on my honeymoon trip to Goa and this was one of the most value for money trip I came across. Great snorkeling experience and food was good too. Best part of it was food and drink was unlimited. Thank you Charlie and his entire team. I would definitely refer them to my friends.

A beautiful boat ride to Grande Island, followed by a relaxed afternoon fishing session culminating in a proper Goan feast at Monkey Beach! What can I say, this was my second visit to my birthplace after having migrated to Qatar when I was just a baby and boy, was it memorable. Cheers Charlie, you’re the best!

: Namaskar. Mera aur Atlantis Watersports ka milan bahut dilchasp raha. Charlie ji, jo owner the, unhone ek ghante tak pehle toh mujhe aur mere patti ko sab tour ke bare mein bataya aur fir humne unke sujhav par Island Trip chuna. Humare kisi bhi dost ya pariwar wallon ne ye kabhi bhi nahi kiya aur hum Charlie ji ke bahut abhari hai ki humme ye mauka diya.

I find Atlantis Water sports most reliable online booking agency. I would highly recommend them to book Island Trip as I did for our group of 25 people in March 2015. Great co-ordination from Charlie and his team. Took good care of us during the trip.
All things was sorted to the perfection may it be snorkeling, fishing or food or boat with shed. Thank you Charlie.

My family and I got to visit Goa after many years of just ‘planning’ it. Obviously, we wanted to see as much of Goa as we could and decided to go along with Atlantis Watersports for this. The itinerary was very well planned and the guides accompanying us were such pleasant, friendly folk. I highly recommend this trip to everyone.

On our tour of India we saved the best for last – Goa. We were awestruck at the sight of the largest church in Asia. However, the lunch at the spice plantations were an amazing experience and the perfect end to this was the Cruise down the River Mandovi, watching the sun soak into the beautiful waters. Loved it, miss it!

Очень хотелось на кораблике по морю, с полденчка, покупаться в открытом море, пофоткать с воды… И вот смотрю, есть у Atlantis watersports экскурсия такая на остров Гранде, да еще с обедом, да еще и с рыбалкой… заказал. Остался очень довольный. Изумительное приключения. Спаибо.

Отличная поездка на остров. Напитки и обед включен. Правда, не особо хорошие люди попались на лодке. Но они мне натроения не испортили. Все хорошо организовано. Атлантис молодец

Grande Island trip is always great experience for me, but yes the other reviews are right it is very busy. A fun experience especially to introduce young children to snorkeling however for adults, I would suggest taking a boat further out on the reef and snorkeling there.

Мы с друзьями заказали прогулку на остров от компании Атлантис. Было весело и интересно. Спасибо.

This was a great fun… ..my friends and me enjoy a lot. Snorkeling was new experience for us. A little scary but fun with yummy food and drinks. Money Beach has no monkeys, please remember everybody! They dolphin watching is great and Portuguese with prisoners waving hands at you is awesome! In total it was a memorable trip with friends and I will do again when I come next.

We went on a family diving trip in November 2015 and were very lucky in finding Atlantis Watersports. They knew the best places for diving. The whole trip was interesting and fun without compromising and safely. The water visibility was spectacular and the underwater wildlife we encountered was magnificent. We are waiting to come soon to Goa and experience the diving again.

Review: My first college trip with batch-mates. The staff was young, friendly and professional. Their knowledge on marine-life and snorkeling was amazing. My friend couldn’t swim but our instructor took him by his hand and made him experience it. Monkey Beach didn’t have any monkeys so was a little disappointed. Can’t wait to go on a holiday with my family next year and plan my trip with Atlantis Watersports!

Мы с друзьями отлично провели время в Гоа. Ездили на остров и ныряли с масками. Наша поездка на остров с компаний Атлантис была просто замечательной. В поездку также включены прохладительные напитки и алкоголь. БУДЕМ РЕКОМЕНДОВАТЬ ВСЕМ.

Thank you for the beautiful memories Atlantis! I was so worried as my friends had put me in charge of booking this trip. I was so relieved when it was over because my friends enjoyed it soooooooooo much. I think we drank too much of beer because we felt unwell the next day lol but the snorkeling experience was totally worth it!!

Island trip sabse behtreen trip hai ispe na sirf aap snorkeling karte hai, lage hath Goa ke sight seeing bhi ho jate hai. Dolphins se lekar ek alishaan mehel tak sab dekhne ko milta hai aur sath kuch khane avam peen ke cheze. Grand Island pahunch kar snorkeling shuru hote hai, paani etna saaf hai ke duur duur tak asane se dikhta hai! Uske baad Monkey beach par jate he hume lunch buffet bhi diya jata hai!

I traveled to Goa with my family in Jan 201, Everything was clearly explained to by their Atlantis customer service and it went according to plan.

This took the uncertainty out of holidaying in a new place, not knowing where to go and how to get there.

Thank you for a hassle free activities planning process which allowed us to enjoy the beautiful Island Trip with Snorkeling and Dolphin Sighting.

I had sprained my ankle, so couldn’t do snorkeling never the less the entire team of Atlantis was very professional and caring. They took extra care of me, I enjoyed watching the ‘Millionaire’s palace’ and graceful dolphins on the way. Once reached the Grande island I managed to do some bottom fishing and then headed to Monkey beach for mouth watering BBQ !

Great help in both the planning itineraries and advice on trips for our honeymoon to Goa. The whole process was very easy. In the past have avoided travel agents, but am glad to have found Atlantis Water sports in goa. They offered both great service and competitive pricing. Island Trip was great and adventurous specially snorkeling considering both of us were non-swimmers. Dolphin sightings was special moment as we don’t really get to see them. Food and other activities was great. A definite recommendation.

Review: Wow! Loved every minute of it… the dolphin sightings were surreal. Snorkeling and fishing with my children and wife was the best experience ever. My children had come down from abroad for this trip and I am so happy I booked with Atlantis, it was totally worth it! Sipping on beers and eating bbq on this un-habited island was the highlight of my trip.

Charlie has done a great job training his crew and planning all these amazing trips! Got picked up straight from my hotel to the jetty and enjoyed my ride to the Grande Island spotting the hump-back Goan beauties while enjoying my beer and snacks. Caught some fish at the island and then sailed further to Money beach. Thankfully no danger of monkeys there while we gorged over the delicious traditional Goan food.

I just wanted to tell everyone reading this that these guys at Atlantis know what they are doing and are thorough professionals.

The highlight of the trip for me was the bbq and Goan style buffet. Being a vegetarian myself I am use to being disappointed when eating buffets, but not this time. The journey to the Island was mesmerizing as well; sailing with the dolphins and taking in the many sites located on Aguada hill like the millionaire’s palace, Portuguese jail, etc. was an awesome experience.

Review: Amazing job! Our very first vacation as a family to Goa and it was mind blowing… Snorkeling is great experience but my daughter is scared of water so she couldn’t enjoy it. The buffet was very tasty. We caught two fishes also on Monkey Beach, my daughter’s first fish she caught! The trip was well worth the rupees and I advise everyone to take it.
