I have so say that we were perhaps unlucky on the day or time that we chose to go on the kayaking outing. All we saw were some herons which we could see on the beach of our hotel anyway. The following are warnings for those thinking of going on this excursion: if you are going by taxi, make quite sure that the driver knows where he is going as the boarding point is in the middle of a dusty building site just off one of the main roads. If you are planning to leave by taxi, there are none. We were lucky inasmuch as an expat American lady who was on the trip took pity on us when she saw us standing in the building site and drove us to a hotel where they ordered us a taxi. Secondly, there are no facilities for changing and you get very wet. There is a bucket of water to rinse your feet but that is all. It is not a cheap excursion (Dhs 150 per person, ie £26 for 90 minutes) so we would have expected better facilities. All in all, rather a disappointment. I am sure that there is room for improvement.
