Good experienceThe boat ride is 30 minutes. The tunnel formed by the mangroves is beautiful. There are many smalls crabs by the banks as well. The water is clear, but according to the guide, the water is usually murky in summer when there is a lot of rain. Recommended to visit in the morning when it is not so hot. The boat will depart once there are 50 passengers to fill it up. There will be a fixed time which the boat will depart if there are less than 50 passengers.

Waste of time and moneyI would not have guven this the one dot rating but had to in order to post review. This is a very very short boat ride, approx 10 minutes. You'll stand in line longer and it's Mandarin only. The mangroves are not that special, the tunnel refers to the trees that overhang which is only a brief part of the brief ride. The bus ride to get there was 1 hour. Not worth the almost $7 US price. Go to the tree house in Tainan instead.
Must visitIt’s a very beautiful natural place. It’s a must to visit when visiting Tainan. Really it’s very beautiful. And this place is suitable to bring kids to visit.
Best boat experience to see a mangrove swampYou will need to buy a ticket to take a raft ride into a mangrove swamp. The whole ride is 30 minutes. In the swamp, you will see four kinds of mangrove found in Taiwan and wildlife on both sides of the waterway. The water is very clean and clear, as it is only about 1 meter deep. The highlight is a natural tunnel formed by the trees. The scenery and landscape is spectacular. It gives you a great feeling that you are going through the forest of the Amazon river. Do plan to go there in the morning, otherwise it is very hot and the raft is open air.
You would only need 1 hour hereIn summary, its a slow, simple and quaint raft ride down a narrow river/canal with mangrove plants and small crabs at the side. The ride that I took was half hour long, with waiting time another half hour. There is a longer ride available but i didnt opt for it. It isn't that much of a wildlife experience I imagined to be honest.
