    Captain very good gave clear and safe instructions. Boats also safe and well maintained. Only thing was they thought we were late but our times said 12-12:45 not 11:30 so double check your times. Otherwise great fun

    Dinesh met us on arrival and was very friendly and welcoming. After receiving the safety brief we were handed over to our tour guide Irfan who was amazing. Very friendly, patient, knowledgeable and we had a great experience from start to finish. Can’t recommend highly enough. Really lovely. Thank you 🙏

    I was with my family. When briefing started in was like in prison. My wife afraid of water. I asked the instructor to be fast. He told me no, after he gave me the phone of his boss. The boss told me to listen to what they says. The instructor and his manager is not polite person. I ask finish the trip and return to the boat station. Highly not recommended.

    Excellent way to see a different side of Abu Dhabi. The guide, Dinish, was great. Explained everything before we left including the hand signals we would be need to know. Friendly knowledgeable and with some fun along the way.

    This is a wonderful trip. Safety first, fun second. We had lots of fun. A fantastic way to see the mangroves and it’s wildlife, with some coastline of Abu Dhabi. We were delighted with how personal Dinesh and his co pilot were. Highly recommend. Thank you!
