Our award winning tour takes you along the Santubong and Salak river estuaries.
The cruise starts at the Sarawak Boat Club. From there, your boat cruises to the mouth of the Santubong River. Irrawaddy dolphins may be spotted. En-route, all the while, your boat roams the mangrove-lined rivers looking for wildlife.
At the Salak estuary and island, as the light starts to fade, we go in search for the rare proboscis monkey. Small groups are sometimes seen in the treetops at the water edge, settling down for the night.
As dusk arrives, we search for fireflies and crocodiles. The boat proceeds further up river where fireflies gather at night. Enjoy the subdued resplendent twinkling of the beetles (yes, fireflies are beetles!) flying about and around the branches of the mangrove trees.
As we make our way back to the boat club, let’s see what happens when a torch is passed over the riverbanks, wait, are those red bright spots crocodile eyes? in pitch blackness, a bright torch is all one needs to detect crocodiles along the river!
We proceed in this manner until we the tour ends upon arrival at the boat club.
