Goa has always been a go-to destination to enjoy the good, coastal life and of course, the water sports! It is kind of unimaginable for Mumbai to actually match Goa in terms of the beaches but soon, Mumbai could see a change as Maharashtra Maritime Board is planning to introduce water sports on Mumbai waters. 



Girgaum, Versova, Juhu, Marve, Vasai Jetty, Bhayandar are the potential beaches for the project to launch so that it boosts tourism and gives the locals a chance to make a livelihood. The officials have invited tendors from the interested companies and after shotlisting the companies, they will be permitted to start water sports on the respective beaches.



Wherver this project would be viable along the coastline, services will be set up and Mumbai could soon get a feel like Goa or Tarkarli.


Applications need to be submitted by December 15. Water sports will actually start from February 2018. The permission will be given for five years and the service will be operated by the companies. It is also mandatory for companies to take proper security measures.” 

Atul Patni, CEO, Maharahstra Martitime Board.

If the water sports start from February 2018, Mumbaikars and tourists will be able to enjoy activities like parasailing, speed boat ride, banana boat ride and jet ski among others.
