Tanaz Kayak Tours

About the activity

Get a duck’s eye view of untouched Havelock with a kayaking tour that takes you through the dense green mangroves and the serene backwaters of the Andaman Sea. Paddle along the calm waters and be mesmerised by the canopy of trees; hear the rhythmic chirping of birds; and learn about the rich and diverse eco-system –we’re sure you’d come back for more.

I don’t know swimming, can I go for Kayaking?

Absolutely, you will be provided a life jacket while kayaking. In the past, many participants who didn’t know how to swim have kayaked with us & enjoyed it thoroughly! 

How tiring is kayaking?

Kayaking is similar to trekking. We keep moving at a constant pace and take break time to time. Moving in water is more efficient than land. To cover the same distance, kayaking takes less energy than trekking. It is an excellent workout for the upper body.

Things to carry:
  • Extra Pair of clothes to change after completing the trip
  • A small towel
  • Sunscreen
  • Hat / Cap 
  • Sunglasses
  • Waterproof case for you phone 
What to wear: 
Wear comfortable clothes – t-shirts, shorts, track pants are some of the comfortable options.  If possible, wear a full sleeves t-shirt to avoid sunburns. Avoid jeans or cotton t-shirts as these tend to stay wet for long. If possible, choose  quick dry clothes. For footwear, choose flip-flops, water sandals or paddling shoes. Basically anything that is water proof and light.
