Mangrove River Cruise and Swimming Tour from Langkawi

Select Date and Travellers
2 travellers
    What to Expect
    This mangrove river cruise and swimming tour is conducted at Kubang Badak River. This mangrove forest is 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.

    Our guide will take you on board the boat to explore the Kubang Badak River at 10am. You may have chances to observe the White-Bellied Sea Eagles, Brahminy Kites, Kingfishers, Herons, Mudskippers, Fiddler Crabs and Monitor Lizards, and possibly the resident otter family.

    You will join a local family for a delightful home cooked lunch, after that head to a nearby jungle trail for a short 450m trek leads to a quite jungle pool for a refreshing swim before returning to your hotel.
