Langkawi Unesco Geopark Mangrove Cruise

Tour Descriptions:

Join our guide on this most memorable outing of the best Langkawi has to offer and take home lasting impressions of this magical place. This excursion is the most highly recommended trip in Langkawi.

Sheer limestone cliffs, fiords, and sea stacks majestically rise like ancient temples out of the ocean. The porous nature of limestone that is continually exposed to the dehydrating sun, wind, and salt from the oceans has resulted in the growth of a unique flora some of which cannot be found anywhere else in the world. Rain and tidal movements will weather and shape these stunning Karst formations giving rise to numerous caves, crevasses, and canyons.

Mangrove forests play an essential part in maintaining the ecological balance of the world. They influence the climate, provide shelter and act as major nurseries for fish and shrimps. Our journey takes us on a voyage of exploration to discover exotic plants and animal species; many of them surviving by gifted methods in a dynamic environment of constant change dictated by the rise and fall of the tides.

We may have opportunities to observe the bizarre land walking fishes, kingfishers, kites and if we are very lucky, dolphins and otters too. Let our experienced guide take you back in time for a tour surely not to be missed.

LOW IMPACT TOURISM

JungleWalla started to conduct mangrove tours in Langkawi in 1994.  Similar tours are now offered by various operators in Langkawi. However, our tours remain ethical, unique, fun, and informative.

Our well-trained and knowledgeable nature guides will share their insight into the importance of the geopark and watching wildlife in their natural habitat. 

We don’t need to include any gimmicky activities such as eagle feeding, monkey feeding and monitor lizard feeding. These are extremely harmful, unhealthy, and unsustainable ecological practices – we do not condone such practices and advise you not to support such activities.
