Let's be straight: we're not the sort of people who enjoy shopping malls, glitz and conspicuous consumption, so for us, UAE is a bit of a challenging destination. However, if you look hard, there are experiences that will allow you to witness a different and very rewarding side of the Emirates. Such is the mangrove kayaking tour we were lucky... More

We went with our 2 kids (12 and 9) and another family and had a great time. Gentle paddling that is not too strenuous. An amazing trip through the mangroves, and one you should do.

We thoroughly enjoyed our Christmas Eve two hour kayaking tour through the Abu Dhabi mangroves. We were a group of three, with one double and one single kayak pre-booked, we read the instructions and Q&A parts of the website before arriving, so we were prepared for our adventure. On arrival we were provided with life jackets and given a briefing... More

Thank you to Dixon our tour guide on Thursday. A great day out. See the mangroves. We decided to do something different, burn some calories would be a nice way to spend a bank holiday. Was lovely. As a couple, some sun, no rum, physical activity, then to settle after on the beach with the sunset and shisha was lovely.... More

Dear James. Thank you for your kind review of the "Noukhada Adventure Company" Yas Beach mangrove tour and the acknowledgment of our multi talented Dickson. Yas Beach is a great place to go an explore from and then relax afterwards. A few days back at 3.30pm it should have been getting close to high tide so I hope Dickson managed... More

We did a mangrove kayak tour out of Yas Beach at 10:30am. It was very easy to find once at Yas Beach. Our tour only had 4 in total. The kayaking was relatively easy as waters were still. We saw lots of flamingoes and it was nice to have some serenity in the middle of a busy city,well until you... More

Dear Kitten84. Thank you for your kind review and highlighting the extensive birdlife that can be found in the Yas Mangroves. The Spoonbills have returned this year. I just need to point out to other "Trip Advisor Day Tours" readers that Noukhada does not run 10.30am Yas Beach mangrove tours over the summer (Jul, Aug, Sep) and F1 only happens... More

My brother and I went Kayaking through the mangroves on the 27th of July, 2015. We went at 4 when the tide was mid-high so we were able to navigate through the narrower channel. We managed to kayak on our own the whole way with the tour guide guiding us so we didnt get lost. Our Guide was kind and... More

My wife and I went Kayaking into the mangroves off Abu Dhabi City's East Coast. The guide along with the other members of our group were amazing, we didn't see much wildlife but we did see birds, crabs and even a few fish. The guide was friendly and knowledgeable, and best of all, once inside the mangrove area, the noise... More
