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

We had a great time on a morning mangrove tour with Noukhada. Our guide, Berson, was knowledgeable and interesting, and took us on a really fun route through little channels. It was amazing to get such a close up experience of the mangroves and to feel so close to nature in such a built up city.

My husband and I did the 3.5/4 hour Al Rhaba tour at 13:30. The trip started with a 30 minute boat trip to the mangroves and then we set off on our kayaks for approx. 2.5 hours. We saw several birds, dolphins, sting rays and needle fish. At certain points you paddle against the wind and tide and at other... More

I took the Mangrove tour in the afternoon (2pm). Taxi found it hard to find, so I would recommend printing out the instructions. It was high tide so we went through the middle of the mangroves. I would not recommend this if you are not comfortable on boats or are not in great shape. I am quite comfortable in a... More

We had a kayak orienteering with our colleagues at Yas Beach though Noukhada and it was really great. At first, I was actually scared coz im not a good swimmer and it was my first time. Since my boss asked me to partner with him and he will ensure that our kayak will not flip so I decided to give... More

Went kayaking with Noukhada on Dec 4th and loved every minute of it. Simply rented the kayak and went without a guide but the Eastern Mangrove is quite easy to navigate. The water was pristine and ripe with wild birds and fishes. Absolutely one of the best activities which also provide outlet for some physical exercise. I highly recommend this... More

Educational, fun and accessible by all shapes and sizes. Very informative and helpful guides. Make sure the taxi driver knows the directions to save a walk from the near hotel. One of the highlights of the week. We did the 2 hr trip from Eastern Mangrove (E48) at high tide.

Great tour through the mangroves with a group of friends. The staff were very professional and patient with a great route that lets you kayak see wildlife and get on an island. Highly recommend.

Noukhada was great at accommodating us as we communicated throughout the week making changes to our reservation for 14-16 people. Then, the guides were so relaxed and friendly we really enjoyed our time on the water! We had different fitness levels so were somewhat spread out, but they still kept an eye on all of us and brought us back... More

Arrived a little early, 3 couples, and were fortunate that our early arrival meant we set off as our own group with our own guide. Paddle upwind and against the current to get up the channel and into the mangrove narrower, protected channels wasnt easy but was far from tough. I could see that slightly unfit or first time paddlers... More
