Private Mangrove Kayaking Excursion


  • Explore the sparkling mangroves under the blue sky with kayak on sunny days.
  • Enjoy the subtropical mangrove ambiance with mist on rainy days.
  • Paddle through the calm water surface in the kayak.
  • Meet a variety of creatures such as crustaceans and fish.

A day in the mangrove forest is intertwined with the ebb and flow of the tide. During high tide, abundant water envelops the forest, and fish swim among the trees. During low tide, vast mudflats appear, transforming into a paradise for creatures such as crabs and mudskippers. Mangroves provide a unique environment for both flora and fauna. Kayaking is the ideal craft for exploring mangroves, allowing you to immerse yourself in the extraordinary world of mangroves.

Additional info

  • The activities available during the tour can vary depending on whether it is high tide or low tide.
    – High tide…the water level is higher, allowing for kayaking exploration through the mangrove forests.
    – Low tide… As the water recedes, kayaking is limited to larger rivers, but it provides an opportunity to walk and explore the vast tidal flats and mangrove areas on foot.
