Explore the eastern mangroves by kayak under the stars. 

Kayak into the sunset with friends among the mangroves; learn about the legendary Ibn Sina and his connection to this thriving ecosystem that serves as a nursery for fish and a home to flamingos.

Listen to the sounds of the wild as the sun sets; discover creatures you never thought you would meet; and learn about the many species that inhabit the mangroves and the importance of conserving this precious habitat.

Join Noukhada to explore the Eastern Mangroves by kayak. No previous experience is necessary – all you need is curiosity and a sense of adventure. Every Thursday night, set out just before sunset in an intimate group of 16 kayakers for this two-hour adventure and take the opportunity to explore this secluded local gem.
