Mulki Adventure Tour



About The Trip

71% of our Earth is covered with water. India has a vast coastline of 7000 km. So why do we not take a paddle, jump in the water, float on its periphery and experience water? Lying on the banks of the gargantuan Arabian sea and river Shambhavi, Mulki is a tiny drop of heaven for water sports lovers. It's an esoteric town and tranquil delight for surfers and kayakers, where they feel the softness of the sand, witness sea creatures and corals in their natural homes, smack outstanding cuisine, and munch on the crisp water. 

Mulki town is between Mangalore and Udupi, some 380 km from Bangalore. The Mulki beach is soft and sandy, away from dangerous sea creatures and corals. We will take our kayaks to glide, surf to catch the speed and roll in the water. If the water gives us tiring bumps, there is a relaxing beach, a rejuvenating trampoline and many peaceful hammocks. 

Come to Mulki, Meet Life!

We will also go to Kapu beach and the lighthouse. Kapu’s tropical climate beckon sightseers towards beaches and a century-old 130 feet tall lighthouse. You will also sail amidst mangroves on kayaks early in the morning, and a surfing session awaits you. Plan the Unplanned team invites you for this 2-day clandestine experience. Read the Mulki Adventure Tour itinerary, and book your tickets soon.

What will you learn?

  1. You will learn how to paddle, sit-on-top of the kayak the right way.
  2. How to sit and get out of the kayak?
  3. How to swim forward, stroke and backstroke?
  4. How to navigate the water and rescue the right way to float in the water using a life jacket?
  5. How to rescue your fellow kayaker and yourself?
