Langkawi Mangrove Tours

Langkawi Mangrove Tours

Several areas of mangrove forests can be found all over Langkawi.

The forests comprise networks of waterways and coves that are habitats to a profusion of endemic wildlife.

The mangrove forests in the north-eastern part of Langkawi island are dominated by Rhizophora apiculata and Ceriops tagal, and cover an area of 1,987 hectares that is drained by three major rivers, namely, Sg. Kisap, Sg. Air Hangat and Sg. Kilim. The tree canopy are home of a variety of birds, bats, monkeys and large number insects.

The forest floor is colonized by a large variety of benthic invertebrates that live on the sediment surface, within the sediment as well as on the lower trunks of trees. These include 16 species of crustaceans (brachyuran crabs from the families Ocypodidae and Grapsidae) and 12 species of gastropods (Ellobiidae, Cerithididae and Littorinidae). These invertebrates play an important role in the ecology of the mangrove forests, by consuming organic matter and recycling nutrients.

The conservation of these mangrove forests is vital for the existence of coastal fisheries, and marine life in the coastal waters of Langkawi.

The majestic Brahminy Kite and ‘brawny’ build of the White-Bellied Sea Eagle (Lang Laut) make their nests within the craggy face of the limestone outcrops as well as the towering trees of the Macincang Forest.

If meandering the mangrove waterways and gawking at the amazing sights is not enough, the inevitable highlight of every tour – the feeding of the eagles may just take your breath away. The boatman will throw chicken offal into the water near your boat and wait for these huge raptors to circle overhead and swoop in for their ‘meal’.

Mangrove tours may include jungle trekking, cave exploration, village stops, dunking in the water during high tide, or guided exploration of mangrove flora and fauna. Take your pick.
Explore kilometres of tidal forests, rugged limestone cliffs, secluded caves and unique flora. Pure Nature! The usual base for this tour is at the Kilim Mangrove Jetty (15 minutes north of Kuah Town) or the Tanjung Rhu Jetty (40 minutes from Kuah). And of course, the operator can pick you up at your hotel if arrangements are made earlier.
