Langkawi Mangrove Safari Boat Tour

1. Langkawi Mangrove Safari Boat Tour

Your 4-hour journey takes you on a voyage of exploration through the mangroves of Langkawi, to discover exotic plants and animal species. Many of them survive by ingenious methods in a dynamic environment of constant change, dictated by the rise and fall of the tides. Following a short drive to the jetty, get on board a boat and explore the mangrove forests and ancient limestone outcrops of the northeast of the island. 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. As you drift through the mangroves, look out for the bizarre land walking fishes. Watch out too for bright flashing kingfishers, and look up to see eagles and kites. If you are very lucky, you might see curious otters and playful dolphins. And don’t forget the little critters, however creepy and crawly they might seem. They are all playing a vital role in this unique environment. The optional lunch is a fixed menu comprising of chicken fried rice and iced drink of the day. The tour includes a 30-minute beach stop, dependent on sea and weather conditions. The total length of the tour is 6 hours, including the 2-hour round-trip transfer from your hotel.

2. Mangrove Safari along Kilim River: 4-Hour Kayaking Tour

Depending on the tidal conditions, you can begin the tour at the coast and make your way upriver through the lush Kilim Karst Geopark, or begin upriver and float down to the coast through a network of meandering river passages. Along the way, stop to explore the mysteries of the Bat Cave, or to observe some of the many exotic plants and animal species adapting ingenious ways to thrive in a habitat dictated by the ebb and flow of the ocean tides, including kingfishers, herons, mudskippers, and monitor lizards. After about 1.5 hour into your kayaking adventure, arrive at a local fish farm/floating restaurant where you can enjoy an optional lunch (if you select the option with lunch). Savor locally prepared ingredients including seabass and refreshments. Once you've finished your lunch and had a short rest, begin the leisurely journey back to your hotel.

Since we have never kayaked before, Vauzan gave us a briefing at the beginning. Everything worked wonderfully. The tour was absolutely worth it for us. We saw many animals (crabs, jumping fish, eagles, snakes, monitor lizards, kingfishers, etc.). Vauzan pointed out many animals to us and gave us very good information. The drive through the mangroves was really impressive. The program was rounded off by a short visit to the bat cave - very interesting. All in all, from our point of view, a very successful tour with a great guide who puts a lot of effort into it.

100% recommendable. From the beginning it was wonderful. We have learned a lot with Fauzan, a great professional who knows a lot and transmits it with a lot of passion and enthusiasm. Thank you Fauzan!

The tourguide was excellent, she knows everything about the flora and fauna. It seems she loves her jobb and She is a reál ambassador to rescue this area and the globe. Thanks her so much!

Very fun experience for those who want to do something active. A different activity that is not too touristy. Nice and exciting nature.

The content was very good. However, there was a change in the start time of 30 minutes without contact, so -1.
