Before you head for kayaking, make sure you have the following:
Located just North of the seaside city of Al Khor, Al Thakira Mangroves is one of the favourite kayaking spots as people get to explore a large expanse of natural greenery. The place is home to the mangrove swamps and a number of migratory birds like the flamingos and herons.
Contrary to its name, Purple Island in Al Khor is mostly green as it's abundant in healthy mangroves and surrounded by clear, green waters (due to the reflection of mangroves). Mangroves are a sanctuary for birds, fishes, crabs, and shrimp, which are just a few of the things that you might encounter when exploring the place.
What could be better than kayaking and enjoying the sight of the stunning Doha skyline at the same time? It's only possible when you try different water activities at The Pearl Island. Here, you can enjoy kayaking with the chance of spotting a variety of fish and other marine life.
Katara Beach remains one of the finest spots to enjoy various water sports activities like kayaking. Its wide beach area is a great place for a kayak adventure, plus one can also enjoy a good swim. When you're done kayaking, check out shops and restaurants within Katara.
Note: Please contact the tour operator directly for tour details, as prices are subject to change based on timing, duration and facility inclusions.
