Full description
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.

A great experience!

First, they picked us up at our hotel and than we drove to the Mangroves. We started in a speedboat and sew the aigles flying and we visited a cave. After that we went to a fishfarm. We could leave our staff at the reataurant and then the adventure began! We were just two person and we had one kayak together. Fauzan was a really friendly und well-informed guide. He told us a lot about the nature and also about Malaysia in general. We really enjoyed the trip. After the kayaking we got nice local food on the floating restaurant. I would definitely do it again!
