We had a great time on our Mangrove River cruise. Our guide was a naturalist, and he gave us interesting information about the mangrove and the animals and plants that live there. He and the boat captain were also great wildlife spotters. Lunch was fine, nothing exceptional but tasty, and it was fun meeting the other people on our boat. Read Less

The Mangrove Tour was really nice but I was a bit disappointed they bothered with a buffet lunch and would have much preferred to just do the tour and then be dropped off at Underwater World and get a ship's shuttle back to the ship. Langkawi was great - self touring would be easy there. In future I would just organise my own tour. Read Less

Sea Eagle & Mangrove Cruise The tour commences with a scenic drive to Kilim Marine Park where we boarded a boat/launch for a cruise, stopping at a fish farm. The boat proceeds at a very quick pace that is quite exhilarating. We come to the bay where the sea eagles can be spotted and there are already a number of boats gathered. Once boat will place a chicken skin on the water in an effort to attract the birds and boy are they attracted? I was surprised at how many we actually spotted. The boat then heads out to sea on calm waters to show a series of rock formations which look in profile like a face and one that looks like a tortoise. The scenery is really spectacular – green water, pristine white beaches. We then visit the bat caves. A path winds through the caves which do have hundreds of bats so perhaps not for the faint hearted. Outside the caves is a vast mangrove forest which is home to many monkeys. The tour then moves to a rather plush hotel for a buffet lunch. The final stop is of course for some shopping. A very enjoyable tour which showed off the very beautiful island.   Read Less
