There are quite a lot few boatmen offering the river safari boat tour throughout the day so one can just go and bargain a bit for the tour. It's better to look for a roofed boat as it could be hot in the afternoon. The journey takes around 1.5h and it could be interesting as you might see many animals... More

I recommend u to find a big boat with roof so you wont get sunburnt. The trip is 1.30 hours around the jungle river and you get to see the cute weirdly monkeys from brunei, you will enjoy this experience.

Mark and Wann are the best tour guides. They live locally in the water village so have an in-depth first hand knowledge of the culture and way of life in the area. They are passionate about the wildlife which made the trip feel like a joint adventure. We saw so many animals, crocodiles, moneys, snakes, lizards and many birds too.... More

We walked down to BSB's river pier at 3:45PM after a quick decision to see the Proboscis Monkey. Fortunately, we were approached by Mark and his wife Wann, and soon we were on their covered boat wearing life jackets. Wann pointed out their stilt house and with her excellent English, explained the city scenery as we road west up the... More

When we got started on the journey I could tell that they enjoy their job, it helped me enjoy it even more. They have sharp eyes that can detect any animal big or small. It seems like they know every type of animal you could see there. Mark made it look like maneuvering the boat was super easy. It started... More

We stumbled upon Mark and Wann while we were randomly walking around the water village. They were friendly and sat us down where they live. They had rescued some baby otters who were orphaned and were feeding them. They were caged but were allowed to run around free from time to time, but would always return. We booked the night...

Great fun going up the river looking for proboscis monkeys. At first we could not find, but then they came down in packs and it was really interesting. The boat trip is most enjoyable and it was also interesting seeing the water village. This really is a must do on your trip to this fine city. Take some water with... More

Fantastic 2 hours out on the river, seeing snakes, proboscis monkeys, crocodiles, lizards, palaces, homes on stilts and much more! Through trip advisor recommendations we emailed Mark & Wann and booked for the next day at 2.00. (4.00 would have been a better time but we had a flight to catch). They were prompt to reply & accommodate us. Very... More

On the way to see the Proboscis monkeys the tour takes you past the river village, very interesting that this community has been here for several hundred years and the families would not live anywhere else. The day of my visit it happened to be high tide and the monkeys had retreated up the mangrove trees due to their fear... More
