The state of Goa is massively popular as one of the best tourist destinations, mostly because of its image as a place where people can party away amidst the sun, surf and sand till they drop. But away from the beaches and raves lies another side of Goa, which can promise tourists a far more enriching and enlightening experience, its natural side. The state of Goa lies on the western coast of India, adjoining the Arabian Sea, which makes water based activities a breeze to enjoy. Tourists can enjoy one of the most popular of these activities, which is dolphin watching. There are a number of places where tourists who are visiting Goa can hire a boat in order to travel into the Arabian Sea wherein they can see these marine mammals up close, making this the best possible opportunity for all those tourists who are interested in photography and nature as well.
