Next day, i.e. on 31st morning we left for the Snorkelling & Grand Island trip. There are agencies through which you have to book the trip. If you are interested, ask your hotel front-office people, they will guide you.
The agents arrange for the pick and drop facility. Around 8:30 am from our hotel, a bus took us to the Sinquerim beach jetty point from where our trip started. Our 1st spot was the Grand Island, the largest marine island far out into the Arabian Sea, off the Marmagoa Harbor, where we were supposed to swim and snorkel. It took us around an hour to reach the island. On the way to the island, we spotted dolphins, few squids and jellyfishes. After the diving session, they took us to the Monkey Island, where our lunch was served. Both veg and non-veg options were available.
Now it was time to return. Compared to arrival the return journey was adventurous. The waves were huge enough to drench us. To add to our adrenaline rush, our boat went short of fuel on the mid-way! Luckily, they were carrying reserved fuel to drop us back to the Sequerim beach jetty.
A 31st night in Goa can't be imagined without parties and clubs. Millions of people visit Goa during this time only to experience the madness of the 31st night. You can booze, visit casinos, go for a river cruise, dance or party. People love partying in Club Cabana, Titos, Britos or would play in Deltin Casino etc. but, we found the shacks much better place to celebrate the eve than getting claustrophobic in the pubs.
