While on your boat ride catch a glimpse of the nearby villages, churches and farms that help you get a clear picture of the simple yet beautiful life of Goans.

What is a house boat?

A house boat is a floating structure designed to be used as a residence, often including typical home amenities such as kitchens, bathrooms, and ample floor space. These structures differ from boats designed for transportation or sport in that they are often modified in ways that limit their ability to navigate water and are usually moored. Some houseboats even lack motors and are designed only to float, not to move. It is possible to live on a houseboat in the ocean, but the tide makes these houseboats move constantly, so still waters or gentle rivers are generally preferred docking sites.

The departure is from Siolim at 05:00 pm.

Being a single lady traveler safety is always my top priority but Charlie ensured he made me super comfortable. The house boat is very well equipped and safety is not compromised at all. We passed through some very pretty villages and churches, the backwaters were not at all polluted and very clean. The Goan food offered on board was sumptuous.

I booked my mother and myself on the house boat for women’s day and we both enjoyed our self thoroughly, relished the Goan food. We were lucky the Atlantis team helped us spot some dolphins and we sailed close by. The highlight was sitting on the upper deck and just watching the pristine water, the waves and the setting sun.

My trip got extended and I decided to take the house boat at Chapora for a night and this was undoubtedly the best decision I made it opened my eyes to a new portion of Goa which I hadn’t imagined existed. Sitting on the upper deck sipping on a pint of beer and watching such old churches, dense green forests go by followed by delicious Goan food! Thanks Atlantis for making it worth my while.

My family and I were on a family holiday and decided to book for the day long trip with Atlantis at Chapora. It was worth every penny we took saw some ancient churches which have been very well kept, the peaceful backwaters and then gorged on the delicious Goan food offered. My kids were engaged by the Atlantis Team, they were very accommodating and friendly.

This was my first stay in a house boat and the hospitality offered by Charlie and his team was commendable. Starting from the food to the ambiance everything was a new experience for my family and me. We enjoyed the Goan meal thoroughly followed by a pint of beer and watching the villages, churches and farms pass by. This was like a dream vacation come true.

Probably the best we could get on our honeymoon in Goa was the Chapora ‘cruise’ through the quaint backwaters sailing by the small villages, ancient churches and dense mangrove forests. The service on board was immaculate and the highlight for us was sitting under the night sky and enjoying star gazing and listening to the musical waves. Thank you Atlantis for this memorable experience.

My parents and I came on this relaxed house boat overnight trip and enjoyed every minute. During the day we were sailing through the scenic ancient churches and backwaters. Chapora itself is an ancient port and well preserved. We were at the upper deck which gave us a better view and we felt much closer to the night sky and bright stars.

My family and I booked with Atlantis online and got a very reasonable deal, the best around. The house boat was spacious, clean and well organized. We enjoyed watching the birds while crossing the backwaters, the villages and farms. The water looked surreal and the instructors helped us spot some dolphins as well. The Goan food offered was very delicious.

Having a keen interest in history of Ports I was taken by surprise to know this was a 16th Century port. Just as we started sailing we crossed some gorgeous farms and villages. We were lucky to have some dolphins give us company during our ride too and swirling their body mid air and dive. The Goan food was the cherry on the cake. I would give you 3 star for this.
