July 26 is the International Day for the Conservation of the Mangrove Ecosystem (that really is a thing!) and the Park Hyatt Abu Dhabi are collaborating with Captain Tony’s to run a special early morning eco boat tour and clean-up.

Abu Dhabi’s mangroves are one of the most diverse and important ecosystems in the UAE – learn all about these incredible trees and their value on this one-and-a-half-hour trip. Take a beautiful, gentle cruise through the forest in search of wonderful local wildlife such as wading birds and gazelles.

The boat will also make a short stop at an island for a rare up-close look at the mangrove flora. Muck in and clean up the rubbish to help do your bit to help conserve the stunning mangroves for the future.

The tour will leave from Yas Marina at 7am and will be back at 8.30am, just in time to dash to work and make all your bleary-eyed colleagues jealous with stories of an adventurous morning.

Get out and care for nature and still be back in time for breakfast? That sounds like a pretty fabulous way to start the day to us.

Dhs125 (adults), Dhs50 (5-12 year olds). Book at captaintonys.ae.
