Three of us enjoyed a good couple of hours paddling around the Eastern Mangroves and checking out a side of Abu Dhabi that you do not usually see. Our tour guide was excellent, friendly helpful and knowledgeable about the eco-system of the Mangroves. Noukhada's whole setup was very friendly and efficient from the booking all the way through arriving at... More

My six year old son, his grandparents, and I experienced a very enjoyable trip. Although it was tiring it was worth it. You get to see a side of Abu Dhabi most people are unaware of. There is a natural side for all to enjoy right under our noses.

Dear ISAD Thank you for your kind review and we are delighted that three generations enjoyed the tour. There is much more of that side of Abu Dhabi to explore with Noukhada who reaches the parts of Abu Dhabi that others cannot. Yours Mark More

Four of us ranging in ages from twenties to sixties had a fantastic day in eastern mangroves. Our guide, a man with a ponytail whose name I unfortunately didn't get, was excellent. He made sure that each of us had a great day and provided us with interesting information about about everything we saw. This is a lovely way to... More

Dear Catherine Thank you for your kind review. Most of the guys are sporting winter ponytails (not me, I don't have enough hair) so I can't help you with the guide's name. We are very pleased that you noticed and highlighted the difference between us and other companies who have kayaks. We appreciate the issues about signposting and the little... More

Being a nature person & peace lover, you can expect a thumbs up from me for a day in the mangroves, but what I didn't expect is that I would be moved enough to go online and write my first ever review for this tour. If you've had enough of the glitzy life in the UAE, go discover this completely... More

Dear Rashi Thank you for your kind review and we are glad that you enjoyed the kayak tour. This is a new tour in a new area and involves getting there, and back, by powerboat and then paddling through some of the best mangroves in Abu Dhabi by kayak. The water is so clear there. Thank you again and please... More

This was our highlight in the UAE. Real nature, with a guide that is knowledgable, interested, friendly and keen to get everyone involved. We were 7 people, age 7 to 49. We all enjoyed it. Mark and his colleague made us see things you would not find otherwise. The speed was adopted to us. Please note that it is advised... More

Dear Johan. Thank you for your kind review and it is always a pleasure to take people out who are both interested and interesting. Your group booked an eco tour so we spent much more time discussing our surroundings and getting to understand how the mangroves live in such a harsh environment. It was a pleasure. Your review has brought... More

A fun way to spend a couple of hours in the morning, guides were very friendly and knew a lot about the area. It was a nice distraction from the busy city roads etc and definitely something for people who prefer the out doors to the shopping malls. Great scenery against a backdrop of the city and well priced.

They give u all the insight on the animal life there and a small history lesson. The kids loved it.. we loved it.. I would definitely recommend it and I will surely... More

There should definitely be more attraction like this in the UAE... Although the weather was very poor (a bit of rain) the kayak tour was fun, entertaining and informative (oh; a quite physical too!). Jason -our guide- was fun, helpful and friendly!
