Don't think there is much of a choice, its pretty much a monopoly. You just queue at the at the pick up point near the maritime museum, buy your tickets for RM15 per person and jump on the boat.

Taking the river cruise at night is better I think.....much cooler and can experience some beautiful lighting on the buildings etc.

Hi 222trip,

In my opinion, the best time for the river cruise is around 7pm during dusk. You will be able to see the riverside scenery in some day light and with pretty decorative lights during the return trip. Otherwise, you will see the same things for the return trip as the boats simply turn around.

Nice suggestion by local expert, AlexMcca. Hadn't thought to do this with the river cruise in the past but it makes a lot of sense. Thanks for sharing, Alex.

Melaka River Cruise is a 45 minute boat ride and its something not to be missed if your in Melaka. Like the rest I agree if you take it after 7pm. As you can see all the colorful lights on the building. The Melaka River Cruise is a great way to see and enjoy the sights of Melaka at a peaceful pace. For me its so relaxing. During the day you will get a better view of the murals on the wall and also you will see many backpackers hotel along the river. You might be able to spot one of the monitor lizards which frequent the river bank. There are 2 location to take the boat one is Taman Rempah Jetty which is located next to the Hang Jebat Bridge or another location is Muara Jetty. Right opposite Casa del Rio Hotel and beside Quayside Boutique Hotel.
