Make the most of your journey and take it all in 1 day to experience guided snorkelling in Tunku Abdul Rahman Park and some wildlife encounter located in the South Western of Kota Kinabalu.
Guided snorkeling will begin at one of the site in Sapi Island where the snorkeling site is less visited as this could only be done from the boat. Our professional snorkeling guide will lead you and show you off all the cool things that we can spot.
- Clownfish aka Nemo, hawksbill turtle, batfish, lion fish just to name a few have been spotted when we are out for snorkelling.
With time permitted, you will be guided to another different snorkelling site and explore the garden of corals with plenty full of marine life to spot and identify.
Freshen up in Gaya Island and enjoy ala-carte lunch with your friends or partner before we head back to mainland for your next trip to the South Western of Kota Kinabalu. Your next voyage will have a 2 hours’ drive passing along the country side. Upon arrival, delightful refreshment will be served as a welcoming reception.
Cruise along the riverside in-search for glimpse of the playful Proboscis Monkeys. Water birds, Macaque monkeys, tropical birds and Kingfishers can also be spotted here as well.
As dusk settles in with a sunset, enjoy the
sights and sounds in a natural setting as you have a sumptuous village style
dinner. The show’s not over yet though, as there is one more trip through the
mangrove swamp. This time, it is graced by the secret rhythm of fireflies and
their flickering lights.
