Why Abu Dhabi?
We have chosen Abu Dhabi as your kayaking destination because this is where most of the UAE’s mangrove forests are.
You have many options where to take your tours. For example, there is the Mangrove National Park which is home to over 60 species of birds!
There are all different types of kayaking tours for all skill levels and hours of the day.
You can take regular mangrove tours, eco-tours, night tours, sunset/sunrise tours, or even a full moon tour.
Prices change depending on the type of tour, availability, and age, considering that children under 10 years old might not be allowed on all tours.
Regular 1.5 hour day tours cost around 160 AED per adult and 110 AED per child (6-8 YO).
Tour timing or departure location should never stop you from making it. Check out Beno for the best car rental hookups, providing you with various options to choose from.
Since a good tour depends on the tides and wind, there is daily checking of the forecast to ensure you and tourers have an optimal experience.
Wondering what to wear and bring with you? Easy.
Activewear and sturdy footwear that is suitable for water sports are very recommended.
Also, if you choose a day tour, you should consider bringing sunglasses, appropriate SPF sunscreen, and a hat with you.
Of course, don’t forget your wallet, a refillable water bottle, towel, and a change of clothes afterwards!
Think well about bringing a phone or camera with you because water splashes into the kayak.
Kayaking is fun, low-risk, and very easy to learn. So whether you have kayaked before or it is your first time, you should go for it during your time in the UAE!
