Be awed by the spectacular Santubong and Kuching Wetlands National Park coastlines as you cruise along spotting the resident pods of rare Irrawaddy Dolphins barrel rolling in the surf. Venture into the many meandering tributaries of this important wildlife area, the natural habitat of the Proboscis Monkeys, Silver Leaf Monkeys, Macaques, Estuarine Crocodiles and strange looking mudskippers to name a few. As dusk falls, be awed by the wonderful palette of the setting sun and the mysticism of this unique area during the magic blue hours before darkness envelopes the land. In the pitch black darkness of night, your expert boatman navigates into the little backwaters and suddenly a rhythmic dance of thousands of fairy lights of fireflies twinkle around you. Your delight at this spectacle is also marked by a slight sense of suspense as your guide spotlights onto the mud banks picking out red eyes of the resident crocs as they start their night hunt. In no time you are back on the main waterway making your way back to shore for your onward transfer back to your hotel. Another exciting Borneo experience under your belt.

No. The Mangroves are not that friendly
Yes, you can as long as it is being used for personal use only.

Yes, you can but only if it is kept out of sight of the monkeys…Very cheeky the Long Tailed Macaque, they may jump on the boat!
No, but we will provide you with mineral water. If you would like to bring extra or soft drinks, then you can…please no Alcohol
There are Estuarine Crocodiles & Irrawaddy Dolphin roaming around here if the tides and time is right. An abundance of birds, some local others migratory, Proboscis & Silver Leaf Monkeys. Long Tailed Macaque monkeys. Snakes, Mudskippers, Exotic Flowers, fireflies and abundance of crabs etc that make the mangrove what it is.

It is the only way to get up close and almost personal with the critters that reside amongst the mangrove trees and mudflats.
