This information was gathered and published by MESYM from this source.

Batu Puteh village has a long history of boat building. River transport on the Kinabatangan River is central to our “Sungai Culture”. Join one of our expert boatman on a Wildlife Observation Cruise and be guided into unique rainforests of the Kinabatangan.

We encourage all visitors to take our two-hour Wildlife Observation Cruises in the early morning or late afternoon for guaranteed sightings of the Proboscis Monkey, Langurs, Macaques, hornbills and a host of other wildlife. Visitors frequently also see wild orang-utan feeding or building their nests in the riparian forest.

Our three large “bagung” boats fit groups up to 15 persons each or our four 6 person craft are great river runabouts. All boat trips are shared unless otherwise arranged in advance for individual groups. Wildlife Observation Cruises (2hr) depart daily – 6:00am and 4:30pm.

Wildlife Observation Cruises are charged at MYR40/person (or for one to two persons MYR95/boat). Children’s rates for 6-12 years of age. We arrange a host of other boat trips to the remote Supu Caves, Oxbow Lakes, or for fishing, research, wildlife photography or conservation work.
