With the summer just around the corner, Offbeat Karnataka Adventure Tour is an excellent way to spend your vacation. Experience Kayaking and Surfing. If we see the earth from outer space, it looks blue. 71% of it is covered in water. India has a vast coastline of 7000 km, then why do we not take a paddle, jump in the water, float on the periphery and experience water? 

Mulki is a tiny town between Mangalore and Udupi, some 380 km from Bangalore. Mulki is a tranquil delight in surfing, kayaking, and wakeboarding. Here, the Mulki beach is soft and sandy, away from dangerous sea creatures and corals.

We will take our kayaks to glide in the water, wake-boards to catch the speed and roll in the water, and if water gives us tiring bumps, there is a relaxing beach rejuvenating trampoline and peaceful hammocks. 

During this trip, you will get to sail and cover 10 km on a kayak. From one side of the Palimar Dam, where the water of the Arabian Sea gushes into the Shambhavi River in Karnataka, you’ll sail up to the other end of the dam and come back. 

Moreover, these two days are like a top-up recharge of learning life skills. You will learn how to paddle, sit-on-top kayak the right way, how to sit and get out of the kayak, how to swim forward stroke and backstroke, how to navigate in the water, rescue the right way to float in the water using a life jacket, how to rescue your fellow kayaker, how to rescue yourself with any help. Mulki is a perfect place for these water sports in India. 

You will also see Mangrove forests, coconut trees, and bioluminescence at night. Sahyadri Rangers team invites you for this lovely 3-day clandestine experience.
