After a year away we travelled again to the Mangroves but this time bringing our little-ones and some friends. Even with different staff from a year ago the Noukhada team was polite ,professional and safety conscious and never at any one moment did we feel that we were being over ambitious taking our children. Thanks to Roger, Ben and Ernesta.... More

The first thing i would like to point out is the map on their website is exceptional and this is a very rear thing in the U.A.E. The kayaking tour i did was great and there was only my brother and I. the major problem was the time we went was low tide and this meant we could not go... More

My husband and I have wanted to try kayaking for awhile, and was recommended Noukhada from a friend. The day we went it was super windy, and they explained that we might need to work a little harder on the way back. The service was fantastic and great value for money. After living in Abu Dhabi for 5 yrs its... More

Did the 90 minute mangrove kayak trip - group was 6 in total. Moderately energetic (I guess we kayaked 3 or 4 km), very peaceful - right next to the city, but quiet among the mangroves. Started and finished on time, very straightforward, good equipment - all in all a great trip.

had the pleasure of kayaking through the mangroves with my women's group this past tuesday. the tour guide (mike, i think?) was very knowledgeable about the wildlife and the mangroves themselves. the trip was lovely and serene and gave me a great arm workout. paddling through the mangroves with noukhada is not to be missed!

Noukhada Adventures guided our 90 minute trip through the Mangroves and did a wonderful job. The gear was all in great shape, the guides were attentive and made sure no one fell behind and they pointed out wildlife along the way. The kayaking was easy with very calm water and easy paths through the Mangroves. They'll even tow you if... More

I took part in their Mangrove Kajak Tour. It is located within city limits and show-cases the wonderful local marine habitat that would be the envy of other costal cities. The guides are knowledable, laid-back and just plain nice. If I lived there, I would be taking this up as a regular sport. I am sure their other tours are... More

Great kayak trip with very friendly guide = great experience. Team went above and beyond call of duty to help me organise trransport to and from launch site and in general were just very pleasant to deal with. I would certainly recommend the company and their tours to anyone visiting AD.

We were a group of 4 families wanting to do something off the normal. Kayaking seemed just the right choice. Annie from Noukhada organized a wonderful Mangrove tour at Abu Dhabi. The planning & directions were immaculate. The kayaking tour was perfectly conducted by Mark. It was overall a fun trip. Last but not the least, we were safe and... More
