What you'll do

Note: The start timimg for the kayaking trip changes based on the tide level. The time selected by you for the experience may not be the actual start time. Do contact me to check the start time on the day of your experience.

Before we start on the kayaking trip, you will be prepped for the day kayaking trip - donning of the life jacket. You will then be briefed on how to use your paddles (oars) to row and manoeuvre your kayak, safety instructions, and tips to enhance your experience. Before we start the actual trip, you will be tested for your paddling skills and then the kayaking trip begins led by an experienced kayaking guide.

While kayaking, you will learn more about the importance of the Mangroves and their amazing adaptability to deal with extreme conditions. As this is an interactive session, you have the opportunity to get your questions answered about the surroudings during your kayaking trip. Be curious!

We then return to our starting point after an unforgettable kayaking experience, which like most guests, you would want to do it again!
Other things to note
UV index is high in Andamans, wear protective clothing to protect yourself from sun and use a suitable sun screen lotion.
Carry sufficient cash to cover your expenses as not many places accept credit cards.
You may want to rent a 2 wheeler to explore the island at your own pace.

We will walk a short distance from our meeting point to our kayaking embarkation point. From there we will start our journey to a sheltered bay along Mangrove trees and depending on the weather and tidal conditions go deeper into a Mangrove creek and then return. The whole trip is around 3 kms (1.8 miles) and takes around 2 hours to complete.
