Vijaydurg Fort:

Vijaydurg, the oldest fort on the Sindhudurg coast, was constructed during the regime of Raja Bhoja II of the Shilahar dynasty (construction period 1193-1205). The fort was earlier known as "Gheria", as it is situated close to the village of

"Girye". Shivaji captured this fort from Adil Shah of Bijapur in 1653 and renamed it as "Vijay Durg" as the then Hindu solar year's name was "Vijay".

Snorkelling:

Snorkeling is the practice of swimming on or through a body of water while equipped with a diving mask, a shaped tube called a snorkel, and usually fins. In cooler waters, a wetsuit may also be worn. Use of this equipment allows the snorkeler to observe underwater attractions for extended periods of time with relatively little effort.

SCUBA Diving

Scuba diving is a form of underwater diving in which a diver uses a self contained underwater breathing apparatus (scuba) to breathe underwater.

Malvan tourism has been started recently and plenty of opportunities for water sports are provided at affordable rates. Unlike the modern SCUBA diving, SCUBA Diving in Malvan is done in a traditional way with a air line diving system where oxygen is stored in a tank in the boat and the diver only carries the air line tube. As SCUBA Diving in Malvan is done with this system minimal training is required and tourists can have a peep into the underwater world with practically five minutes instructions!

Dolphin Safari:

Its a recreational activity to enjoy one of the beauties of nature observing dolphins pass by, near the boat.

Cruise through the serene waters as the beautiful dolphins welcome their world.

Parasailing:

The harness attaches the pilot to the parasail, which is connected to the boat, or land vehicle, by the tow rope. The vehicle then drives off, carrying the parascender (or wing) and person into the air.

The activity is primarily a fun ride, not to be confused with the sport of paragliding.
