While utilising UAQ Marine Club’s unique location, school students and corporate groups throughout the UAE will have the opportunity to gain an understanding of the mangroves, revitalise the mangrove islands and gain confidence in a fun marine environment.

Amazing Adventure!

Students from all over the UAE have come and made memories they will remember for the rest of their lives.  We also have Houseboat trips that are more educational on a curriculum based level and aim to provide the children with not only a look into the wildlife and habitats of the mangrove islands but also to give them an awareness of the impact humans have on theses habitats and in effect the wildlife species that live there. During our houseboat excursions there are various activities that improve self-confidence using our inbuilt slide on the houseboat.
