Dolphin Sighting, Satang Island & Snorkelling

Drive from Kuching for about 45 minutes in the direction of Santubong or Damai. Board a small boat and begin your cruise to the mouth of the Salak River. You should be able to spot the elusive and rare schools of Irrawaddy dolphins. Our boatman will stop nearby Bird Island to see the sea birds before proceeding to Satang Island.

Head out to the South China Sea for Satang Island. The island is part of the Satang National Park, where a turtle conservation project is located on the island. Green Turtles and the rare Hawksbill Turtles often lay their eggs here. Look in on the hatchery to get an idea of the conservation work being carried out on these highly endangered sea creatures. Spend time on the island's white sandy beach or go snorkeling. You will be able to enjoy the corals and the marine life in the crystalline waters off the island. A packed lunch and refreshments will be provided. Retrace your journey back to Kuching in the mid-afternoon, arriving back at your city hotel by about 3:00pm.

Note: This tour is suspended during the monsoon season (from November to March) due to rough sea conditions between the river mouth and the island.
