The Santubong Peninsula extends 10 km into the South China Sea and is bordered by the Sarawak River on the South. This cruise takes you down the Santubong river, past the majestic Mount Santubong and into the bay, where pods of Irrawaddy dolphins are often seen especially if there are fishing boats around, as they love to feed off the discarded fish. The boat then heads to the western side of the bay into the Kuching Wetlands National Park, where mangroves are home to Proboscis Monkeys, Silver Leaf Monkeys, monitor lizards, crocodiles, 43 varieties of fish, 11 species of prawns, and fire flies.
The 9am morning cruises are best for seeing the eco systems of the mangroves and dolphins can be sighted if the weather conditions are good, while the late afternoon cruises at 5pm are great for seeing wildlife, particularly proboscis monkeys and after sunset the fire flies.
Remarks: Sightings of wildlife is not guaranteed.
