On this unique journey, you’ll experience both village and mangrove swamp environments, learning about the intricate workings of each. This cruise takes you to the mouth of the Santubong River and proceeds to Salak village. This village is known as a place where historic traditions live on into the present day. After your short visit to the village, cruise along the mangrove swamp. Well-informed guides will focus on the region’s complex ecosystem, highlighting webs of animal and plant interaction and pointing out a variety of endemic species along the way. Visitors will learn how the various animals and these uniquely adapted trees colonize the shoreline. This is one of few places where the rare Irrawaddy, or snub fin dolphins, are often seen.
