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

It was a beautiful morning on the water today... For those hours on the boat and in the water, I actually forgot it was over 110 degrees fahrenheit and super humid out. Highlight of today??? We were treated to a natural encounter ala "SeaWorld style" show - the bottle-nosed dolphins were out and they were playing in the shallow waters,... More

Our group of 5 joined the evening mangrove tour, leaving the E48 launch point near the Eastern mangroves hotel. In this heat, I wouldn't recommend taking a trip earlier than this as there is little to no shade when out on the water. Our guide was fantastic, so passionate and knowledgeable about the preservation of the mangroves and the wildlife... More

Went on the mangrove tour on Fri. May 2nd at 10am, E48 launch point. Our overall experience was really good but for an experienced kayaker, this is a basic kayaking experience... with knowledgeable tour guides. Will do this again when we have other international friends visiting us in Abu Dhabi, perhaps we will try the full moon tour. The tour... More

We took a. kayaking tour through eastern mangroves at high tide. We learned about history, geography and cultural influences of the mangroves and wildlife. We enjoyed a rest on the beach and a cool swim. The guide, Pearson, made the trip!

We tried the Friday morning tour 10am, to the mangroves , it was 150 each and we loved it, living in UAE so long we missed not trying this sooner. Not loads to see but supporting any projects trying to do good is worth it. It was a great upper body workout and not too achy this morning. Would definitely... More

We decided to try out the new Al Rahba kayak tour and were we glad we did! The day before the trip we were sent a detailed map to the launch point in Al Rahba, where the guide and speed boat were waiting. The guide and driver were friendly and polite from the second we got there and gave us... More

Thank you for your kind review of our latest tour in the Al Rahba mangroves. It is one of our more remote and, as you pointed out, quieter locations. The water is clear, fish and birdlife plentiful and very green. Noukhada reaches the parts of Abu Dhabi that others cannot. I am glad that you enjoyed it. Yours Mark More

Tour lasted just under two hours. We embarked from Al Gurm (just before the Eastern Mangroves Hotel) and kayaked (led by a guide) to the mangroves. This was a peaceful afternoon event. I was in a 2 person Kayak. Half way through event we stopped for a rest and were told the history of what the mangroves are. Unfortunately tides... More

We've done two kayak tours with Noukhada now, the first was from Yas Beach, where we were taken by power boat to the mangroves and paddled through them and back. It was totally excellent, our guide was knowledgeable and friendly, the kayaks were very stable and we saw great wildlife and learned a lot about mangroves. It was fun paddling... More

Dear Team Wilks Thank you for your positive review and I am very happy that you have been with Noukhada before. It sounds like you are the exploring type so do come and try our Al Rahba tour or the embryonic Ooid Shoal trip...especially if you are here over the summer. Yours Mark More
