Kuantan River Cruise

What we say: 3.5 stars

Kuantan River Cruise runs two types of river cruises that may be of interest for those after a closer look at the mangroves.

The 45-minute daytrip cruises, which run two to four times a day depending on the day, run from the pier out towards the mouth of the Kuantan River, taking you under the Tanjung Lumpur Bridge in the process. They also take you by some fishing villages on the north bank of the river on the way out. Doing this in the midday heat would be of limited pleasure, so if you can, opt for a late afternoon one at 16:00 (runs daily); you'll also have better light for photos. A minimum of two people are required for this trip to run. Cost is 18 ringgit for an adult and 15 ringgit for a child.

The evening cruise, leaving at 19:30 and taking roughly two hours, goes in the opposite direction heading upriver to areas that are good for viewing fireflies. They require a minimum of four passengers for the trip to go. The evening cruise has double pricing, with MyKad holders paying 88 ringgit and everyone else 128 ringgit.
