tour details

Embark on a mangrove sunset cruise that takes you to the mouth of the Santubong River and along the mangrove forest of Kuching Wetlands National Park. Enjoy the amazing scenery of the mangrove swamp and learn how the various flora and fauna such as the Proboscis Monkeys and the uniquely adapted mangrove trees, develop a complex symbiotic eco-system. If the weather permits, you will get to see a breath-taking sunset over the unique scenery of the mangrove forest. In the dark, you will continue your cruise through the mangroves in search of the Estuarine Crocodile, which are often seen during low tide. Their eyes shine a bright red colour when hit by the light of a torch. Other natural phenomena to watch out for include the fireflies that congregate in the mangrove trees.
