What to expect
Unknown to many Khao Lak is home to a beautiful and almost undiscovered mangrove eco system with rivers, jungles and forests. Khao Lak's mangrove cover an area of over 60 square kilometers, and for the first time it is now possible to experience this breath taking and tranquil environment. On this trip we take a maximum of just 6 people, to keep it as excusive and relaxed as possible. Leaving on our longtail boat from a small local fishing village we will take you on a cruise through previously unvisited, unseen mangrove rivers. After some time and photographic opportunities, we will arrive at our floating base hidden deep inside the mangroves. In these totally natural surroundings you will find only tranquility and nature at its best. From here we use kayaks to explore the small streams and rivers that twist and turn through the mangrove trees. After a while we will head back to the platform for some rest and refreshments. Once everybody has got their energy back there is a chance to swim and cool off in a sheltered, hidden in-land lagoon before heading back to the pier.

Great insight to an out of the ordinary environment.
I think it is a great educational experience for all ages to go kayaking in mangroves. I love trekking and I am always into learning and experiencing different ecosystems. All of a sudden I felt I was in this secret, strange and magical floating forest. We were super lucky to see wild monkeys, a snake and fish, but even without them the environment was gorgeous enough. The kayak fits 1 person which is great to maneuver through the crazy environment.  The guide was super nice and I felt super comfortable (I was the only one in the tour). The other guide who was looking for places for us to go to was also really kind. I had a very generous "light" meal that there was no way I could finish as it was plentiful. I also had a swim in a sort of lake that was super refreshing. I think this is one experience to recommend to everyone!

Three Amazing Adventrues
My wife and I wanted to explore Khao Lak she contacted Discovery Travel and booked a tour for the Magrove kayaking experience. Wow! Sam and Man picked us up at our hotel and we launched at a tine bay in a lovely village. Nothing pretentious our curated. A totally authentic experience. Our amazing guides took great care of us and were super knowledgeable. We took the longboat to their “office” which was a super cool floating platform where we launched the kayaks and ventured into the mangroves. They knew the coolest places and we saw monkeys and snakes and a lovely Kingfisher. After we took the longboat to a peaceful lagoon for swimming. Such a great day. Sam and Man are fantastic guides! We ended up spending two more days with them. We went snorkeling and jungle trekking! Both were truly amazing. The snorkeling was some of the best I’ve ever experienced and we were treated to a delicious lunch on the beach afterwards. The jungle trek was unforgettable. We learned all about bamboo and cooked rice in the jungle in bamboo that Sam and Man cut themselves. We even made jungle tea! After we had delicious lunch and visited a sustainable farm to feed deer and fish and then a lovely giant Buddha temple. We can’t wait to adventure with Sam, Man and Kim again soon!!

Peaceful and no crowds
Oct 2019
We did this trip with our teenage son. It was very peaceful and enjoyed the kayaking into the mangroves. The location is beautiful and did not see anyone else on the day.
We saw a snake and monkeys which were just off in the distance but could see and hear them. The swim in the lagoon at the end of the day was beautiful and a great way to cool down and finish off a lovely day. Make sure you use mosquito repellent (I did not get bitten) and sunscreen on the tops of your feet. Guides where very friendly and helpful and offered to tow my kayak when I was getting tired but I toughed it out. No pressure to keep up just go at your own pace.

Just the best trip!
Jul 2019 • Couples
Thank you so much for arranging our trip through the mangroves at such short notice.
We couldn't have had a better guide and mini guide on the day. Num and his son were just wonderful.
Our trip through the mangroves was so peaceful and teanyquil. The area is mindbogglingly beautiful and we loved every second of it.
Num was very patient with me as I had never kayaked before.
We can't recommend this trip highly enough. From start to finish it was just superb. We're already planning a return trip to Khao Lak next year and will be in touch to see what else we can explore with your company.
Thank you so much.
