No. The Mangroves are not that friendly

Yes, you can but only if it is kept out of sight of the monkeys…Very cheeky the Long Tailed Macaque, they may jump on the boat!
No, but we will provide you with mineral water. If you would like to bring extra or soft drinks, then you can…please no Alcohol

Long Tailed Macaque monkeys. Snakes, Mudskippers, Exotic Flowers, fireflies and abundance of crabs etc that make the mangrove what it is.
