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

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
