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

Well worth the 150AED price for 2 hours. Friendly staff and nice route taking into wide channels and dense mangroves. Take a hat, shades and lots of water!

What an amazing company! They were so professional from the moment we spoke to them on the phone, to the guys taking us round the Mangroves in the kayaks. We took our 2 daughters aged 7 and 10 and they were enthralled for the whole 2 hours. There was a clear and informative safety briefing at the start as well... More

We did a sunset kayaking tour as a work activity. Noukhada was very easy to book with and the guide was very nice. That said we were surprised that we only did about 35 mins of actual kayaking and then spent another 35 on a beach. We asked to kayak more but they said "no we just return back the... More

Dear ssl332332. Thank you for your review and nice words about the team. However, I must take issue with your timings. You booked a 5pm sunset kayak tour that started at 5pm. You arrived, close to the site, at 5.30pm and by the time you had finished chatting to your work mates your group arrived at the launch point at... More

We booked the Mangrove kayaking tour at high tide. It was a good decision as the high tide allowed us to enter the narrow channels through the mangroves, which was the nicest part of the tour. Being surrounded by trees and breathing roots in very shallow water was interesting and rewarding. Unfortunately we didn't see any wild life. The dugongs... More

Finding myself in Abu Dhabi for the day (being an ex-pat in Dubai) I was keen to explore another Emirate in a way that did not involve being stuck in traffic.

This tour is basically the best thing you can do in Abu Dhabi. It is nicer when the tide is high. The guides are awesome and the nature is amazing. You will never believe this is in Abu Dhabi. Go for it and educate yourself about mangroves while exercizing.

I loved my kayak experience. I was nervous because I had never kayaked before and being in open water was a little scary for me. But when we got there the guide was very supportive and put me on a double kayak with my husband, that way it would be easier for me. He gave us quick instructions and then... More

I was worried about my taxi finding the launch sight and concerned that I wouldn't be able to keep up as I had mild whiplash. Everything worked out wonderfully. Sure, the taxi got lost but the helpful security guard at the Eastern Mangroves hotel sorted him out. The guys running it were from the Philippines and were brilliant. Great fun,... More
