About Grand Island in Goa

How to make a Grand Island trip in Goa memorable:

Goa is a travel destination for nature lovers as well as adventure seekers. So while visiting the state, going on a half-day trip to Grand Island is one of the best things to do in Goa.

Grand Island is an ideal spot for those looking to enjoy scuba diving, snorkeling, and fishing in Goa. The island is located few kilometres west of Mormugao peninsula in South Goa. There are different variants of the Grand Island name such as Grand, Grande, and Ilha Grao. The Eastern part of the island is often called as the Mortar Island. The Island also serves as a base for Indian Marine Forces to conduct their training exercises.

Grand Island is a popular place among divers. The depth in the near-shore waters is 7 to 20 metres, which is perfect for both professional divers and novices. The most famous diving place in these waters is the sunken British 135-meter-long vessel named Suzy. The ship rests on the bottom of a small bay. It is covered with small corals and is a home for different fish and crustaceans. Professional and experienced divers prefer to dive near the Davy Jones Locker ship, which is not far away from the Grand Island. Other popular diving sites at Grand Island in Goa are Sail Rock (20 metres of depth), Turbo Tunnel (7 m), Surge City (9 m), Uma Guma Reef (15m), and Bounty Bay (9m). The shallow and calm waters are just suitable for first-time divers.

Diving in Grand Island is a fun water sports activity to enjoy here. Before exploring the tender blue sea waters, visitors should learn all the rules and techniques of underwater swimming. First-timers can take special diving courses organized by numerous professional diving operators in Goa. The diving equipment is available for rent. While diving, one can encounter underwater creatures like dolphins, fish, sea turtles, shellfishes, and colourful corals.

      The pictures which were sent to me of my hotel room were completely different of my real hotel room. I felt like I was looted . Still I didn't complained because it was my mistake to have blind trust on you people. The location hotel was good. The cab services was also good.

      Trip is too costly if I'm compair, hotel is bad, ood is very bad, sightseeing points were very few, I feel it's just a formality. Over all Goa is awesome, going to plan again within 3-4 months.

      Everything was so nice. The plan. The follow up from the agent. Especially Mr.Jack the agent. He is very polite and prompt to give a suggestions and help us. Really apperciate it. The Food in the sun kissed plaza was delicious. The only thing the hotel have to concern are They need to be furnished the room and In the reception need to be more quick on customer demands. And they must improve to handle customer while welcoming us.
