I took the Mangrove tour in the afternoon (2pm). Taxi found it hard to find, so I would recommend printing out the instructions. It was high tide so we went through the middle of the mangroves. I would not recommend this if you are not comfortable on boats or are not in great shape. I am quite comfortable in a... More

We had a kayak orienteering with our colleagues at Yas Beach though Noukhada and it was really great. At first, I was actually scared coz im not a good swimmer and it was my first time. Since my boss asked me to partner with him and he will ensure that our kayak will not flip so I decided to give... More

Went kayaking with Noukhada on Dec 4th and loved every minute of it. Simply rented the kayak and went without a guide but the Eastern Mangrove is quite easy to navigate. The water was pristine and ripe with wild birds and fishes. Absolutely one of the best activities which also provide outlet for some physical exercise. I highly recommend this... More

Educational, fun and accessible by all shapes and sizes. Very informative and helpful guides. Make sure the taxi driver knows the directions to save a walk from the near hotel. One of the highlights of the week. We did the 2 hr trip from Eastern Mangrove (E48) at high tide.

Great tour through the mangroves with a group of friends. The staff were very professional and patient with a great route that lets you kayak see wildlife and get on an island. Highly recommend.

Noukhada was great at accommodating us as we communicated throughout the week making changes to our reservation for 14-16 people. Then, the guides were so relaxed and friendly we really enjoyed our time on the water! We had different fitness levels so were somewhat spread out, but they still kept an eye on all of us and brought us back... More

Arrived a little early, 3 couples, and were fortunate that our early arrival meant we set off as our own group with our own guide. Paddle upwind and against the current to get up the channel and into the mangrove narrower, protected channels wasnt easy but was far from tough. I could see that slightly unfit or first time paddlers... More

It was a beautiful morning on the water today... For those hours on the boat and in the water, I actually forgot it was over 110 degrees fahrenheit and super humid out. Highlight of today??? We were treated to a natural encounter ala "SeaWorld style" show - the bottle-nosed dolphins were out and they were playing in the shallow waters,... More

Our group of 5 joined the evening mangrove tour, leaving the E48 launch point near the Eastern mangroves hotel. In this heat, I wouldn't recommend taking a trip earlier than this as there is little to no shade when out on the water. Our guide was fantastic, so passionate and knowledgeable about the preservation of the mangroves and the wildlife... More

Went on the mangrove tour on Fri. May 2nd at 10am, E48 launch point. Our overall experience was really good but for an experienced kayaker, this is a basic kayaking experience... with knowledgeable tour guides. Will do this again when we have other international friends visiting us in Abu Dhabi, perhaps we will try the full moon tour. The tour... More
