The very best way to see and enjoy historic Kuching is from the Sarawak River, the main artery around which the city has grown. Our Sarawak River Cruises give you a view of the city and its surroundings that is impossible to experience from dry land. From the comfort of our purpose-built pontoon boats you will enjoy unobstructed views of every aspect of traditional life on the river.
1.1. Morning Cruise (0900 hrs – 1100 hrs)
This cruise takes you past a host of fascinating sights to get a close-up view of traditional life on and around the river. The boat glides past colourful Malay Villages, the elegant City Mosque, the Astana, Fort Margherita and the Kuching Waterfront. Along the way you will see brightly-painted tambangs ferrying passengers, villagers going about their everyday activities, and fishing boats and wooden cargo vessels plying the river.
1.2. Sunset Cruise (1700 hrs – 1900 hrs)
This cruise, running from late afternoon to twilight, follows a similar itinerary to the Morning Cruise, with the added pleasure of the setting sun as a backdrop (weather permitting). The cruise ends with colourful lights coming on all along the Kuching Waterfront as you approach the jetty.
