Kayaking with Al Mahara PDF Print E-mail


Experience a unique marine eco-system with spectacular mangrove forest scenery on a short, guided kayaking adventure through the rainforest of the sea in Abu Dhabi!

Al Mahara Diving Center is a  provider of sea and mangrove kayaking to educate intrepid paddlers about the importance of the mangrove forests sometimes referred to as the “rainforest of the sea” in Abu Dhabi.  The paddling trips can start at various locations but a popular destination is the Eastern Mangrove Lagoon located off the Eastern Ring Road near the new coastal developments or Yas Island or other off island launch points.  Only a short paddling distance of 0.5km will take you into scenic and tranquil waters amongst the beautiful Abu Dhabi mangroves.  The distant sound of the city disappears and the chattering of the avian community comes alive.  Turning into the winding channels, there are chance encounters with Egrets, Herons, Crab Plovers, Sandpipers, Socotra Cormorants and if you’re lucky - flocks of pink Flamingos by the water’s edge.
