Mangrove River Cruise & Swimming Tour - Pulau Langkawi , Kedah Malaysia

Mangrove River Cruise and Swimming Tour conducted at kubang badak river . This mangroves Forest is home to a unique group of plants. Adapted to live in an environment of constant and dynamic change. Dictated by the rise and fall of the tides, the Mangroves are a wonderful study on survival and adaptation.

Our guide will take us on board to explore the Kubang Badak river. We may have chances to observe the White-bellied Sea Eagles, Brahminy Kites, Kingfishers, Herons, Mudskippers, Fiddler Crabs and Monitor Lizards and if we are lucky the resident otter family.

We will then join a local family for a delightful home cooked lunch. Next we head to a nearby jungle trail for a short 450m trek leads to a quite jungle pool for a refreshing swim before returning to the resort.

The Forgotten Forest between Land and Sea

The Mangroves are home to a unique group of plants that have adapted to live in an environment of constant and dynamic change dictated by the rise and fall of the tides. The Mangroves are a wonderful study on survival and adaptation.

A short drive to the jetty where we get on board a boat and explore the mangrove forests and the ancient limestone outcrops of the north east. Mangrove forests play an essential part in maintaining the ecological balance of the world. They influence the climate, provide shelter and act as major nurseries for fish and shrimps. Our journey takes us on a voyage of exploration to discover exotic plants and animal species; many of them surviving by ingenious methods in a dynamic environment of constant change dictated by the rise and fall on the tides. We may have opportunities to observe the bizarre land walking fishes, kingfishers, eagles, kites and if we are very lucky, dolphins and otters too.

NOTE Similar Mangrove Cruises are also offered by various Langkawi operators. However our tours are unique, fun and informative. Our well trained and knowledgeable nature guide will share his insight to the importance of mangrove, limestone and watching wildlife in their natural habitat, we don't include any 'gimmick' activities such as eagle feeding, monkey feeding and lizard feeding. These are extremely harmful, unhealthy and unsustainable ecological practices - we do not condone such practices and advise you not to support such activities.
