Joined 3 other people for the 9am departure from Mangroves East. Floyd, our guide, was a fount of knowledge and very patient with us. We slowed down to admire the birds, look at the crabs and all the hundreds of small fish. It was low tide and going down the narrow canals in the mangroves was great fun. Great fun,... More

Loved doing this kayaking experience with my family. I went with my husband and 3.5yr old son. We had such a great time, it was peaceful and well organised. I will say that you should be prepared to get a bit wet, so dress accordingly!

Met at the dock around 5:45 pm so we could set off on the "Mystery Night" at 6:00 for around 2 hours. They have kayaks for one person and kayaks for two persons. Make sure that you get one of the kayaks with a backrest on the seat because paddling for 1.5/2.0 hours is not as easy as it sounds.... More

The experience is ok but there are some points to be aware of. We are a couple in our 50's and reasonably fit and with some proper experience of kayaking, which proved useful. We arrived by taxi to E48, which is both the meeting point and launch point. It's not the easiest place to find but not that hard either.... More

We took a kayak tour this weekend and had a great time. The guide was informative and encouraging. The tour was well organised and we had a great experience. There are no facilities at the site but it is easy to find following the instructions given and is not far from Abu Dhabi centre where we were staying. We saw... More

We were in a group of 9 people, where 5 were under 10 years old. The guides were very helpful in towing the little ones and the not so little ones across the main canals. All loved the tour though the very narrow mangroves water ways with the lesson on mangrove ecosystem. The stop over for a swim, was very... 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.

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
