This trip cruises along the Santubong River and plies the Salak River Delta systems, both of which flow into the South China Sea. Experience a close-up view of the heavily silted mangrove swamp, a haven
for its inhabitants from reptilians to crustaceans and fishes. The swamp sustains many different species of trees, the most important being the black and red mangroves, locally known as bakau or Bako. It’s
used as piling in construction and is also processed as charcoal. Easily mistaken as wasteland, the area experiences tidal rises that leave rich silt on which the mangrove thrives, giving rise to the symbiotic
relationship affecting all flora and fauna, aquatic life and coastal organisms. The Irrawaddy or snubfin dolphin, inhabits the rivers, estuaries and shallow coastal areas. The Santubong area remains one of
the best places in Sarawak to view this unusual-looking marine mammal. When seen, they swim and dive around open waters less than 30 meters deep. Visitors will need a keen eye to spot the dolphins
and they are best seen when they frolic near local fishing boats that are hauling in the catch!
