Smoking, we went on the rice boat and there were just 4 of us. We didn't know the other couple but got on great and had a fantastic time. I would recommend it if you can manage to go with a small group as we did. It is quite expensive now though, much more so than in Kerala.

Yorkshire Tiger

The trips can be booked through John's Boat Tours. When we were there they had 2 offices in Candolim, one on the main street and the other one on Beach Road.
