“The perfect side trip when visiting the underground river”

Mangrove Paddle Boat Tour
Reviewed 22 June 2018

This is definitely a good side trip to add on to your Underground River Tour. We didn't wait long in line to see the underground river because we did the side trips like this and the zipline first. We did this in the morning and had lunch before proceeding to the underground river. It was definitely a good plan because I remember waiting so long in line when I last visited.

The mangroves tour was very educational. It was chill and relaxing. Our tour guide was very good, very knowledgeable and informative. He spoke good english as well. One would really appreciate the beauty and wonders of the mangroves out of this tour. I definitely recommend this tour and would love to do it again.

I would suggest this if you haven’t seen mangroves before ...otherwise skip it! There is a nearby beach, go there instead if you have time to kill.

This is a nice and short tour, organized by proud locals. Basically they paddle you down a river surrounded by mangrove trees.
In our case we had Lady Mangrove as our guide, who knew a lot about everything in the area. During the trip she explained the local wildlife, nature and of course she sang her song (we learned afterwards that this is apparently a famous local lady ;-)).

If you are in Sabang it's a nice trip to do, cheap and easy. Also nice to combine with the zipline which is just across the river.

We had a wonderful guide and happened to be the last three on the tour for the day. We were fortunate enough for it to only be our group. Very informative guide, explained the mangrove, saw a python sleeping above us - eeks, and another large snake. Very relaxing. Dressed in swimsuits and cover-ups with swim shoes, even though we never got wet.

We went to Sabang to do the Underground River Tour. Unfortunately, it was cancelled due to weather as we got there. We took the mangrove river tour to make the most of our time there (although I think you will still have enough time to do this even if you do the Underground River Tour). It is a laid back tour as your guide paddles and talks about the ecosystem of the river and the flora and fauna therein. The scenery is interesting and nothing like I've ever seen before. You also have the opportunity to see monkeys, monitor lizards and snakes, all of which which we saw.
