Private Mangrove Kayaking Tour

Highlights

  • 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.
  • You will be guided on a private tour tailored just for you.

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.
