I went to the cheaper boat ride. Not the bigger boat but the smaller boat, sampan-like. This ticket counter is further down the waterfront path. 19RM per person for one hour. We went from 530 to 630 pm. If you've road a boat in other SEA countries, this would be boring for you. Nothing new to see. But the breeze... More

Great commentary along the tour on this spacious open boat. Not too many passengers and it felt like a luxurious tour. The price is also very high (includes orange juice and cake). I did not care about the traditional dance show on the way back. The sunset was beautiful!

It was nice weather with clear skies when we started the cruise, we managed to get good seats on the open deck. The boat is big and clean, they provide a drink (with free refills) plus 2 small slices of layered cake (this could be further improved as it was not tasty). The cruise was informative with good commentary. Great... More

this river cruise is too ordinary.. while conducted in English its content just fall short..ther isn't much along this river..also my trip was marred with audio problems and the performance was cancelled as a result without a sincere word of apology..this shouldn't happened if they have a backup,, solve this to save the cruise

It was a wonderful experience using Mr.Rusic 014-8868059 of Kampung Santubong boat for river- ruise and satang island snorkeling........ They will pick you up either by van or boat from you hotel, it is a free transfer.....really a thoughtful arrangement giving tourist peace in mind by not worrying about the reaching jetty of the boat. With experienced boatman, you will... More

The two-hour cruise in the evening on the MV Equatorial, while relaxing on the upper outside deck for best views and a refreshing breeze is an effective way to explore Kuching City from the river side. Whilst savouring unlimited free drinks of orange juice and plates of delicious layer cake, the National Assembly Building, the beautiful Kuching Mosque, Astana, Fort... More

The river cruise is a nice way to see the city and to have the opportunity to enjoy a bit of cultural dancing while having a beer. Great sunset.

This is an evening cruise at 5.30pm from the river front just opposite to the parliament building on the opposite bank. It is called the sunset cruise lasting for hour and 30 min, the cost is 60 MR for one person. Most of the seating is on the top deck where all customers congregate and the view of Kuching city...
