Night Kayaking with Tanaz

Tanaz Kayak Tours

About the activity

Sail over the Andaman Sea after the sun has set on this exceptional kayaking tour to experience the calm of the Andaman backwaters like never before. Spend two hours paddling on the backwaters of the dense Havelock mangroves, and listening to the chirping of crickets, star gazing and pointing out constellations and be enchanted by the glowing bioluminescence –all of this combined gives you a memory of a lifetime! 

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
  • Waterproof case for you phone 
What to wear: 
Wear comfortable clothes – t-shirts, shorts, track pants are some of the comfortable options.  Avoid jeans or cotton t-shirts as these tend to stay wet for long. If possible, choose  quick dry clothes. For footwear, wear flip-flops, water sandals or paddling shoes. Basically anything that is water proof and light.
