Water Sports in India

The Himalayas offer you some of the toughest and most exciting river runs in the world. River sports in the rapids are the most popular, throughout the summers and can really get your adrenaline pumping. The innumerable fresh water streams and lakes in Jammu and Kashmir, Himachal Pradesh and Uttar Pradesh are ideal for angling and trout fishing. The coastal regions provide excellent opportunities for water sports like water skiing, wind surfing, yatching, snorkelling and scuba diving.

Further South you can enjoy water adventures along both the west and the east coasts of India. The islands of Andaman and Nicobar in the Bay of Bengal and Lakshadweep in the Indian Ocean are virtually untouched and are some of the best spots for scuba diving and snorkelling. The beaches of Goa and Kerala also offer other sporting opportunities like water skiing, wind surfing and sailing.

The West coast offers sailing in Mumbai, Goa and the lakes around Pune.

The best months for water sports are October and March.

Scuba Diving

The 2 main destinations in India which have scuba diving activities as well as courses in the sport are the Andamans and Lakshadweep.

The Andamans have some fascinating underwater marine life, varieties of colourful fishes, ship wrecks and exotic coral reefs. The best way to explore this is scuba diving. The coastal water surrounding these islands is the abode of one of the richest coral reef ecosystem is the world. Many of the islands are surrounded by fringing reefs, often several hundred metres wide and separated from the shore by a lagoon of similar width. There are also steeply sloping reef walls, and coral pinnacles or knolls.

The Indus snaking through Ladakh and the Zanskar and Chenab in Kashmir are very different river running experiences. Other rivers like the Sutlej, Beas (in Himachal Pradesh), Teetsa (in Sikkim), and Yamuna also offer sporting challenges.

The best season for river rafting is from April to September. The most popular stretch for this sport is on the Ganges, near Rishikesh in Uttaranchal.

For those who love sailing, yachting and wind-surfing, there are facilities in Goa as well as at Kovalam beach in Kerala. Mumbai, too, has several opportunities for sailing and other water sports.

Angling and Fishing
There are opportunities for anglers in Bhalukpung in Assam. The river Jia Bhoroli, Kapili and Manas are the best places for Golden Mahseer angling since the days of the British.

The Jia Bhoroli of Assam has a long and glorious history of Mahseer angling

The state of Himachal Pradesh with its many snow-fed rivers are an angler's haven. The upper reaches of the river Beas in the Kullu valley are also great for this sport. The picturesque Kangra valley has several spots that offer mahaseer- river carp.

Trout Fishing: 1st November to 31st January

In Kashmir, trout fishing is a lucrative business and the ideal season is from April to October. The British introduced the brown and rainbow trout to the streams of Kashmir, where they have thrived. Only artificial flies are allowed and each licence entitles the angler to keep six fish a day, none being shorter than 7.5 cm. The common rivers for fishing here are Sindh & Wangat.
