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.
