Kayaking amid the stunning and intriguing Al Thakira mangroves in Qatar is a worthy experience. The tour takes you through one of the most fascinating mangroves in Qatar located within a small village just a few kilometers North of Al Khor. The village rests on the edge of an estuary. It houses mangrove swamps that has extremely high saline seawater content, which adds to the size of these mangroves, making them the most established in Qatar – this is where the real adventure awaits you. To reach the Al Thakira shores, you may have to navigate through the maze of houses – an activity much enjoyed.

Once you meet us at Al Thakira marina, we caravan through the desert to a launch point. We paddle through the mangroves in Qatar Al Thakira forest to a secluded mangrove beach to enjoy moments of relaxation. From here, we paddle back. For an extra 100 riyals (subject to change), you can choose to stay and enjoy barbecue for the moonrise at 8 PM. You will be given binoculars to observe the stunning and breathtaking moonrise. This is one tour that unveils vistas that are completely different from much of the remainder part of Qatar.
