Bintan Mangrove Discovery Tour (Day/ Night)
Take our two-hour eco tour to discover the wonders of Bintan’s mangrove forests. Cruise along the Sebung River and enjoy the fragrance of rare flowers and exotic fruits in the foliage of the tributaries.
Learn about mangroves from our expert guide. Our Bintan Mangrove Discovery Tour was awarded the Pacific Asia Travel Association (PATA) Gold Award for Eco Tourism in 2003.
Day – Wildlife
Watch Macaques and Silver Leaf monkeys, monitor lizards and snakes in their natural habitat. Wait patiently as a Kingfisher or Purple Heron dives for its catch of the day. Join the birds to scan the water bed for mudskippers, crabs, prawns, mud lobsters, snails, and clams.
Night – Fireflies
Experience the serenity of the mangrove forests and the Sebung River on a boat ride by moonlight. The synchronised dance by fireflies is a delightful sight.
Day – Indigenous folks
Get a taste of life in the mangroves. Observe ‘orang laut’ (sea gypsies) in their ‘kelongs’ (fishing houses built on stilts over water). Watch out for traditional charcoal kiln and static fishing traps (bubus) along the way.
