Mangrove kayaking on Havelock Island

You'll set out in 1- or 2-person kayaks to explore the extensive mangrove ecosystem of Havelock Island, enjoying the peace and the chirping of birds. The trip takes about 2.5 hours to complete, and you'll be accompanied by an experienced guide who will take you through the maze and tell you all kinds of interesting facts about the mangroves.
