Sea Eagle & Mangrove Cruise
The tour commences with a scenic drive to Kilim Marine Park where we boarded a boat/launch for a cruise, stopping at a fish farm. The boat proceeds at a very quick pace that is quite exhilarating. We come to the bay where the sea eagles can be spotted and there are already a number of boats gathered. Once boat will place a chicken skin on the water in an effort to attract the birds and boy are they attracted? I was surprised at how many we actually spotted. The boat then heads out to sea on calm waters to show a series of rock formations which look in profile like a face and one that looks like a tortoise. The scenery is really spectacular – green water, pristine white beaches. We then visit the bat caves. A path winds through the caves which do have hundreds of bats so perhaps not for the faint hearted. Outside the caves is a vast mangrove forest which is home to many monkeys. The tour then moves to a rather plush hotel for a buffet lunch. The final stop is of course for some shopping. A very enjoyable tour which showed off the very beautiful island.
