Irrawaddy Dolphin Cruise, Kuching
Borneo, Borneo (Sarawak)

Info : Irrawaddy Dolphin Cruise

This tour will take you from Kuching to the Damai Peninsula where you'll board a boat and proceed to the river mouth of the mangrove belt in search of the Irrawaddy (or snub fin) Dolphins.

The Irrawaddy Dolphin is a slow swimmer; it surfaces in a rolling fashion and lifts its tail fluke clear of the water for a deep dive only. Observe the dolphins while they swim around the boats of the local fishermen in search for food. Afterwards there may even be chance to try to find wild crocodiles along the riverbanks of the mangrove forest.

Another 30 minutes’ ride will bring you to the Satang Islands located off the coast of Santubong. On the way, pass by ‘Bird’s Rock’, a rocky islet which is an important habitat for Black-naped and Bridled terns. A packed lunch is provided on the island. Enjoy the beautiful view from the island, relax at the beach or go for a swim or snorkel in the clear water. After lunch you'll return to Damai for the transfer back to Kuching.

Customer Feedback
We all remarked on how well tourism blended in to the local community in a positive way. At no point did we ever feel exploited or taken advantage of. We felt privileged to visit the Penan tribe in Mulu and enjoyed the market there without any pressure to spend money. Visiting Abai village and planting the trees was also a great experience for all ages of our party. Again, a privilege.
