Daman will add water sports to attract more tourists

Published on : Saturday, October 12, 2019

The Union territory of Daman, which is Gujarat’s favourite watering hole, plans to add more activities for its tourists than just letting them hang around only in the bars on its sun-kissed beaches. The administration has decided to develop water sports on Jampore and Light house beaches at Moti Daman.


Daman tourism department has already selected two operators to run these leisure water sports facilities. At present, facilities like ramps, walking area and waiting area for the tourists are under construction at the beaches.


Director of Daman Tourism, Harshil Jain said, “the leisure water sports activities are all set to start very soon. We have not decided the dates, but the contractors are working day-and-night to set up facilities soon at both the beaches.”


He further said that leisure water sports will help boost tourism in Daman. “The flow of tourist will increase during the vacation period. Till now, tourists come here to enjoy sitting on the beaches, but now they will have the option for water sports, too,” Jain added.


According to tourism department officials, the sporting activities would be set up on the lines of Goa. Attractions like jet skis, banana ride, para sailing, pedal boating, rowing, kayaking and motor-boating will add to the beach fun, they said.


“Since adventure has a risk factor, we have asked the contractors to keep provision of accidental insurance cover for all the tourists using the ride. Customers too must be covered for accidental death, loss of limb and permanent and partial disability,” said an official.
