"A day to remember" We booked the kayak trip to celebrate my sister's birthday. We were a group of 6 and were assigned a lady guide (Ghada). She is really amazing, fun, very informed and we loved being with her. We enjoyed the trip and it was an experience to remember. The trip started on time, they were very punctual and organized and we were greeted with hospitality and a BIG smile 🙂 Kayaking through the mangroves we were able to even see little crabs. We should also not forget the amazing Khalid who made sure we were kept hydrated with water and all types of juices.
Love the trip I enjoyed the trip, everyone was excellent and helpful. Kayaking is a little tiring but the view is so much worth it Thank you aquasport
Kayaking tour , purple island Excellent service ...friendly, helpful staff , organized , welcoming , nice experience , highly recommended
Great family adventure through the natural wonder of mangroves Very good trip through Purple Island Mangroves led by biology students. Fabulous trip and lovely quiet camp. Really enjoyed it, good life jackets and briefings. Went as three families with children they had good jackets and canoes for families.
Best staff and camp Huge and best trained permanent /seasoned /experienced staff who are very helpful and are very happy in their work. And this joy is literally contagious. Most best and coldest refreshments including fresh juice when you return victorious from your trip. They do a LOT of special accommodations so it's best to call and ask. For example you can book the whole camp for your family. Or you can have a special group ie a longer sessions or faster/longer trips with less breaks of you are coming to train. If you go earlier mostly you can also start earlier. I saw at least 4 different special groups leaving from their camp minutes apart in a hour. One group returns after like 4 hours when I was leaving They were some kind of professional watersport team who had their own life jackets. They seems to have to best camp from the 3 companies working there based on the campus I saw driving around they are poorly equipped and very bare. Aquasports was The cleanest and with the most facilities including running water but much of our was locked down because of Corona. Some people told me they are doing bonfire, BBQ, African drumming, overnight camping and other things before coronavirus but let's see if they still have it after. The training was really good specially the ways on how to avoid back pains and how to conserve energy to do paddling for the two hours. They give us 2 breaks in the trip for "stretching the legs" one has an ecology presentation and the other one you can Explore an island and swim and take pictures. I'm sorry I don't have many pictures of their camp.
August Sunset Tour We were a group of Four adults, who went on a Sunset tour of the Mangroves. We joined two other ladies as well. There were plenty of staff - nearly 1:1, we were given a full safety talk with our instructor. The whole time we were on the water the staff were looking after us, giving us etc cold drinks and juices. They gave a great talk about how and why we need the mangroves etc The other two ladies in our group became tried and then two of the staff towed them for the rest of the way. The staff even offered to help another paddler from a different company who had fallen into the water - Offering him support and water etc The fruit juice and biscuits was also very welcome when we return to the base camp! My only negative is that it is difficult to find the entrance- more signs with the company name and logo are needed! The care and attention offered by the staff was fantastic and when I go kayaking again I will definitely use this company as they offer a 5 Star ? service Shukran
If you want to visit the mangroves the AquaSports Qatar team are simply the best We have been regular customers of Mohammed and the team at AquaSports Qatar for over 2 years. It’s fabulous to see how this business has grow over the time we have been here in Doha. The company may have grown but the personal service and attention to detail and customer safety remains at the highest standard. Great team with excellent knowledge, the mangroves should be on everyone’s visit list when coming to Qatar and there is no better company to guide you ! Suitable for novice and experienced kayakers alike !
