Geopark Mangrove Cruise in Langkawi - Kedah Malaysia


Tour Description

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

A short drive to the jetty where we get on board a boat and explore the mangrove forests and the ancient limestone outcrops of the north east. 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 ingenious methods in a dynamic environment of constant change dictated by the rise and fall on the tides. We may have opportunities to observe the bizarre land walking fishes, kingfishers, eagles, kites and if we are very lucky, dolphins and otters too.

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

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 have resulted in the growth of a unique flora some of which cannot be found anywhere else in the world. Rain and the 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 on the tides.
