- Dolphin Watching in Goa: Dolphin Watching in Goa is one of those bucket list experiences. Watch one of nature's smartest animals play and jump out of the water as you watch from a safe distance. Experience a relaxing fun-filled dolphin safari to spot wild dolphins in the Arabian sea. You might see either one or two types of Dolphins or Porpoises. One is the Indo-Pacific Humpback Dolphin and the other the Finless Porpoises. Both are commonly spotted when Dolphin Watching in Goa. Watch them is the sea, their natural environment and experience special moments with your friends and family. It is important to understand that these animals travel large distances in search of food, so there is no guarantee as to where they will be at any given time. Our long experience and knowledge will, however, give you the best chances of seeing them. Also important to note is that these are highly sensitive and intelligent animals, please do not throw anything in the water or shout. Humpback Dolphin: The Humpback dolphin that you can see in Goa are distinctive by their large 'Hump' on their backs. You can clearly see these as they dive and then rise up out of the water. This makes it possible to spot them from a long way away. They also have a long 'Dorsal' fin, the fin at the back that is also distinctive. They can grow up to 2.6 Mts in length and way up to 140 kilograms, so they are not small and must be treated with respect. This species is categorised as being 'in danger of extinction throughout all or a significant proportion of its range' so needs to be protected. Finless Porpoise To give it its full name the, Indo-Pacific Finless Porpoise, is the other large sea mammal that calls the ocean around Goa home. The Finless Porpoise is shyer than the Humpback Dolphin but is still regularly seen on our Dolphin Watching in Goa tours. The Finless Porpoise is one of seven different Porpoises in the world and is one of the largest growing up to 2.30 meters and weighing up to 72 kilograms. Again they are impressively large and you should treat them with respect. During our dolphin safari, you get to spot the friendly Indo – Pacific Humpback dolphins and shy Finless Porpoises. The Indo-Pacific Humpback dolphins are mainly coastal and are found in tropical and subtropical regions of South and Southeast Asia. They are grey coloured with pink patches. They are called humpback dolphins because of the hump behind their dorsal fin. They are one of the most social and friendly species of Dolphins. Then we have the shy Finless Porpoises. They are black to grey, in colour. As their name suggests, they have no dorsal fins. They are not so friendly and are difficult to photograph as they do not surface high out of the water and are very fast. Fun-Filled Dolphin Watching in Goa Our fun-filled dolphin safari is for 45 minutes and you can also enjoy a great view of the coast that includes the former 'Kingfisher Villa', Aquada Fort with the old The Portuguese Jail and Asia’s first lighthouse. You will for sure be immersed and mesmerized watching pods of these amazing animals gliding through the water. There is something very fascinating about them as they seem to make your stress melt away.
