Full description
Start the tour with a hotel or port pickup by the local driver and transfer to the jetty. Travel by boat through the twists and turns of the Kilim River through the maze created by aerial roots and thick fleshy leaves of the mangrove trees. Keep your eyes peeled for animals that make their home in this delicately balanced ecosystem which is responsible for the health and wide variety of species in the Andaman Sea. Also, see how the mangrove area is a perfect environment for cottage industries such as fish farms.

Make your first stop when the boatman stops the engine and throws some chicken pieces out into the water to invite the eagles. Marvel as eagles dive down just next to you and claw up the chicken pieces as they soar into the sky. Then, venture out of the mangroves to admire majestic limestone rock formations and sea stacks that rise dramatically from the ocean. This ancient coral thrust into the sky millions of years ago is home to a unique and ancient group of plants found nowhere else on earth.

After this, set off to explore darkened bat caves and seeped in fabled tales of mysteries and romance. Visit a floating fish farm in a secluded cove surrounded by high vertical limestone and granite cliffs. Spend a wild time hand-feeding the rays and be surprised by the other sea creatures who inhabit the tanks. After this, the boat will make your way back to the jetty and the driver will drop off from where you started from.

The tour was amazing and maybe the best adventure during our 3 weeks trip in our holiday. The communication via What's app was very quick and they were very helpful, because we asked some support from them. The gudie during our Mangrove ture was very nice and speakes good in english, so we got a lot of new information, made a lot of very good pictures and collect an unforgettable adventure.

It was a great day out. The guide was very informative and knowledgable. All I would say is that this isn’t a half day trip, we got picked up at 09:15am and didn’t return to our hotel until about 05:30pm so don’t do this trip if you are pressed for time that day. There is some waiting around at the start and after lunch but other than that, it was very good value for money.

The Tour is amazing. You realy need to do that. But its longer than discriped. So when you book the trip, you have to block the whole day. And its a lunchstop included. But the food is not included in this package. And if you have not a strong stomac, don't do the trip. The boat will be very fast sometimes and when its wavy you feel very quick ill. Also take an extra bootle wather with you. You can give the wather to monkeys on monkeyisland. They are realy thirsti and thanksful for the extra wather.
