Specialising in local exploration by paddle, this local tour operator runs kayaking trips through the mangrove forests, allowing you to experience Abu Dhabi's mangrove habitat up close. If you're interested in the ecology of this unique environment, opt for the two-hour eco-tour. There are also night tours and a monthly full-moon tour; both are great during the hotter summer months.

Noukhada also rents kayaks and SUP-boards if you want to explore solo. It's based on the marina at the far eastern point of the Eastern Mangroves Promenade.
