It is hard to believe that this exists in a city. Such a quiet, peaceful afternoon on the water paddling through the mangrove channels. We booked 2 single kayaks for the two hour guided tour. We had a 2 for 1 coupon from the entertainment book so it only cost 160 AED. We called in the morning to book and... More

We booked a tour for 2 hours kajaking through the mangroves. We were lucky that no one else besides us booked the tour. So we got a private guide, where we got the chance to learn a lot about the nature, the people and how things are going in UAE. The guide was amazing and took a lot time for... More

We rented a 2 person kayak recently through Noukhada for 3 hours, which was 150 dhs (I believe) with a refundable deposit. They left it at the marina for us, but even when we went to the wrong location, they still had one for us. Make sure you go to the correct location for the rental (double check with them).... More

We have to postponed the trip once as I fell ill one day before and they were very understanding and accommodated our request with no fuss which we really appreciate.

We were a group of six people of varying ages and kayaking experiences. from the very beginning the service we received was excellent.

Dear Ruth Thank you for your kind review of our kayak mangrove tour. You highlight how seriously we take safety and how seriously we regard imparting knowledge about the mangroves of Abu Dhabi. Whilst Avicenna Marina is a tough and resilient plant, it can only take so much abuse and, with our mangrove tour, we hope to highlight what a... More

We went kayaking with a group of 8 today. We booked by phone, and rented 4 double kayaks (without guide). We only had to wait a few minutes after we arrived, the kayaks are great, and there is a life jacket available for everyone. We all loved kayaking through the mangroves. It's great to see some nature, which isn't something... More

This is a great way to see the mangroves if you don't have a lot of experience kayaking. The online booking system is easy and straightforward and the guide was very friendly and knowledgeable on our tour.
