A great morning spent touring the mangroves with Irfan. Conveniently located at our hotel, we really enjoyed the time spent with Irfan whilst exploring the peace and tranquility of our surroundings. Superb instructions from Irfan on handling the boat and safety briefing.

This was brilliant and we went all round the Mangrove and the boats go actually really fast . Definitely recommend it.
