My wife and I had been curious about the mangroves in Abu Dhabi, so we found this company and signed up for their 6 pm kayak tour. They provide detailed instructions on how to find the meeting point and their guides are professional and friendly. Our guide was originally from Mexico and provided a recommendation on where to get good... More

We had a great time on the mangrove tour with Noukhada. Our guide was very friendly and extrememly knowledgeable about the ecosystem we were kayaking in. There was one person in the group that had no kayak experience and he was really accommodating to assist the beginner but still work with the rest of us. It was an easy paddle... More

Went with a group (10) teens on a perfect Monday evening from 6pm to 8pm. We enjoyed going with our guides as they were quite relaxed and allowed us to pretty much (safely) do what teens do - explore the Mangroves, check out the swimming and generally have a great time. We were lucky enough to see 2 foxes, lots... More

Dear Ian W, Thank you for your kind review and I am assuming this is the tour booked for the Scouts. At this time of year the crabs try and keep out of the sun so either that, or you paddled at a high tide, would explain the paucity of decapods. If you enjoyed the Eastern Mangrove National Park then... More

The only information we can gather to help you with your issue is that a 'Matt' purchased a gift voucher and couldn't use it. We have searched our gift vouchers and can only find a 'Matt' who purchased a gift voucher on 24 December 2014. Eighteen months later, this is well and truly out of date because our vouchers only...

This is a beautiful place to kayak, great scenery, can even spot some wild birds. It's a secluded place off the highway/dirt road..no facilities there but that didn't bother us! Booked with this company on numerous occasions and its always been a great day!

Second time on this trip, I am an outdoorsy type and love such things, but trip is also very good for non experienced kayakers, even with kids. Minor degree of physical fitness is recommended. Will return whenever new batch of friends comes to visit and are even remotely interested in such things.

Booked on an entertainer so buy one get one free. Excellent service, very helpful on phones and informative about best time of day to do tour due to winds/tides. Our guide was also fantastic, very chilled out and relaxing tour. Would highly recommend as a great way to see the mangroves!

We had actually booked the kajak tour, but ended up doing the sailing trip! At arrival, it seemed there was a lot of wind and as we were the only ones who booked a trip at that time, our guide Dickson suggested we better go sailing. Even though the sailing trip was way more costly, we got it for the... More
