Santubong Peninsula Cruise, Kuching
Borneo, Borneo (Sarawak)

Info : Santubong Peninsula Cruise

Depart for the Santubong Peninsula (about 45 minutes’ drive from Kuching) where you will board a speedboat and proceed to the river mouth of the mangrove belt in search of the Irrawaddy (or snub fin) dolphins.

This species are slow swimmers. They bob up in a rolling manner and spit small jets of water from their mouths whilst spy hopping - bring their heads vertically up out of the water to have a look around.

See the dolphins swim around the local fishermen boats in search of food. Afterwards, proceed along the mangrove forest in search of the mysterious saltwater crocodiles that can sometimes be seen on the riverbank.

Further on, you will arrive at the Satang Islands located off the coast of Santubong. During the right season (from May to September), green turtles come ashore at night to lay their eggs and rest in the surrounding waters before and in between landings.

A picnic lunch is provided on the island. Enjoy the stunning view from the island, sunbathe at the beach or snorkel in the clear water. On your return journey, pass by ‘Bird’s Rock’, a rocky island which is an important habitat for Black-naped and Bridled terns.
