My fiancé and I were lucky enough to end up on a private kayak tour with Jerome earlier this month (July) and had a brilliant time, in fact this has to be one of the highlights of our trip to Langkawi. Jerome's knowledge of the Mangrove was superb, and he was happy to help us out with his local knowledge. The trip itself wasn't to physically challenging, yet you do get a good work out and feel fabulous afterward. Lunch included in the tour, a soup, meat and rice combo (delicious). He also provides a free litre of water for the kayak. We were able to see another side to Langkawi, again with Jerome explaining the ins and outs of the geography.
I would suggest you do try in get in a small group for the kayak tour (<4-5pax) otherwise you will start to lose the "guided" part of the tour. So in the high season, it would be worth asking for a private tour.
Maybe slightly expensive, we paid 220RM per person, maybe 180RM would be a bit more appropriate. Only negative - and a small one at that, and in all honesty its not big enough to impact the stars!
Highly recommended, remember to brig hat (that has some string so it can't fly away), mosquito repellent (IMPORTANT!) and sunscreen, towels, change of clothes for the ride home, and a can do attitude! Have fun! and thanks Jerome and Dev's tours for a great day!

I choose Dev's adventure from trip advisor's tonnes of good comment. A guide can definitely make a trip very different. Jermone was our guide, a naturist full of passion with nature and fun filling. He can non stop telling us stories of the mangrove and it's history. Along the trip, spotting all snakes, monkeys , birds, lizard, explain their habits. The eagle watching and bat cave were amazing. Dev's Adventure's kayaks are very stable and very easy for turning to fit in the narrow passages. I was lucky joining in 11others people from Ireland, Netherlands, india, Singapore who are fun and polite, helping and laughing each other. This will be one of my unforgettable memories and very different from those I did in other countries. Thanks Dev's Adventure Tour bringing me fond memories of Langkawi. Much appreciated.

This kayak trip is suitable to those with little kayak experience. It was fun and intersting, a cross between high school biology and phys ed classes. Jerome was very knowledgeable and we had a great day out. Highly recommend the kayak tour of the mangroves.

It was an amazing Mangrove Kayak tour! Naturalist Khirien is an experienced & informative guide! He shared us information/ history of this mangrove ecosystem. I like this interactive tour so much and will highly recommend our fans to join. It is full of fun.
