Tour Code : SRW/KCH-SAN (Ex-Kuching)
Departure : Daily (Duration : 3.5 hours)

 

This tour takes you around the rivers of the Santubong Peninsular, offering you the chance of seeing some of Sarawak’s fascinating wildlife.   The cruise starts at the Sarawak Boat Club.  From there your boat cruises to the mouth of the Santubong River, where Irrawaddy dolphins are often spotted. 

Your boat then roams the mangrove-lined rivers looking for wildlife.  As the light starts to fade we go in search of the rare proboscis monkey.  Small groups are often seen in the treetops at the water edge, settling down for the night.

As dusk arrives we search for fireflies and crocodiles.  Crocodiles are often seen on the mud banks and brightly shining crocodile eyes can be spotted when a torch light is passed over the river.

After searching for crocodiles your boat proceeds further up river where fireflies gather at night.  Watch the fireflies move around the branches of the mangroves, momentarily lighting up the night sky.  After enjoying a firefly light show you return to the boat club. 

(Please note that wildlife sightings cannot be guaranteed.  However, we do enjoy a high success rate.  Wildlife commonly seen on this tour includes proboscis monkeys, estuarine crocodiles, macaque monkeys, fireflies, monitor lizards, silver-leaf monkeys. Irrawaddy dolphins and a range of bird life like White Belly Eagle, White Eagret, Seagull, Kingfisher etc..  Cruises do not operate during rainy weather)
