If you have a boat driver that has not much experience you might just see the monkeys from pretty far up in the canopy. There are also other wildlife to see on the way, but some boatman are only concentrating on the monkeys. My advice is to agree, beforehand, on a price if you see monkeys and/or wildlife and are...

We headed to river, boarded a typical river boat which required precise balancing and zoomed down to the lovely Mangrove forests to see (fingers crossed) Proboscis Monkeys. The boat ride was fantastic, we cooled down from the increasingly oppressive heat and humidity, saw lush natural bushes, trees, and wildlife including a large family of Monkeys. This was certainly a highlight... More

I was fortunate enough to learn of Mark and Wann from this website. A quick email was sent their way and prompt replies were received answering all my questions. Their price was reasonable and I booked a day trip with them. The service I received from Mark and Wann was top notch. The tour was customized based on my needs... More

We spend an afternoon doing this trip and it was nice. We were not so lucky with the proboscis monkeys though, there were not much in sight during our visit but plenty of other wildlife species to see. The boat driver was knowledgeable and he took us inside the mangrove forest. It was so nice to breathe in the clean... More

We took two tours with Mark and Wann, one to the Islands and the next day on an evening safari tour. Mark has a wonderful eye for spotting animals and is determined to get you the best view for photos, a snack was included on both trips. Wann gives lots of information and history and they are both great guides.... More

We've done a river cruise with Mark and Wann. They are a really friendly couple who make the best out of your trip. We came especially for the proboscis monkey and we've seen many. They just know where to find them. It was amazing. We've seen all the things we wished for. Even the small animals which we never would... More

Well worth a morning or afternoon. A good boat driver will help you find monkeys, crocodiles and monitor lizards. The mangroves are an amazing sight.

This is one thing I really wanted to see during my 2 day stopover in Brunei. Established that the best time to visit was a couple of hours before sunset and so found myself on the docks about that time where I simply hired a water taxi (cost B$30 and I paid the driver an extra B$20 to stay on...

We were with friends at the waterfront and were very nicely approached by Wann, who co-owns a boat and tour company with her husband Mark. She had credentials to show us that she is trained and certified (by the Brunei Tourism Board, I believe), and we agreed on a reasonable price of BD40 for six of us to go on... More

We tried to book a mangrove tour through our hotel but the hotel rep kept telling us "He is only doing the National Park." So, we simply walked down to one of the jetties, hearing several men yell out to us to get us to take their boats. Once we got closer to the jetty in front of the mall,... More
