This cruise leaves the waterfront at 5.30. Complete with informative commentary and some cultural dancing. It only goes for 1.5 hours but it is a nice way to see the city and spend an evening before dinner.

The sunset cruise is well worth doing as an introduction to Kuching as the 90 minute cruise highlights most of the key sites up and down stream. The cruise leaves at 530 returning at 7pm so provides an opportunity for a great sunset as you...More

Hi there, You can book through any agent to my knowledge, or you can go buy a ticket at the pier just for the cruise.

You have to check if it was the BIG cruise or a small boat, with different period of cruising too.
