Itinerary

Bat Cave

The tour will starts the at Kilim Jetty (or sometimes Tanjung Rhu jetty) where the guests will be taken in a boat ride through the mangrove in Kilim river. First stop of the tour will be the Bat Cave where over there the guests will be given introduction about the mangrove; what it is, what its benefit to humans etc. Also the history of the limestone formation around that area will be told to the guests. then they will be taken into the cave to see the bats that would be hanging above of their head.

Fish Farm

Guest will be taken to the second stop, the fish farm. At the fish farm, they can see fishes like grouper, trevally, barramundi, coral fishes being fed by staff in charge. also they can try to hand feed the stingray themselves at that fish farm.

Crocodile Cave

Unlike the bat cave, Crocodile Cave is a half submerge under the sea water, thus enable the boat to go pass through it during low tide.

Tanjung Rhu Mangrove (Monkey Watching & Eagle Watching)

Then the guests will pass through a man made canal in Tanjung Rhu Mangrove. Inside Tanjung Rhu, there will be a large group of macaques where the guests can see them in near distance. We will watch eagles (we are against wildlife feeding) within Tanjung Rhu mangrove too right after the macaque watching.

Lunch served in Floating Restaurant

Guests will be having lunch at a different fish farm in Kilim. Basic lunch is included in the price, but feel free to add extra meal such as lobster, prawns or other fishes (in your own expenses) if you like.

Beach Stop (depending on weather and sea condition)

The boat will then go out to the Andaman Sea from Tanjung Rhu after lunch. Here theres a small chance that they might see dolphin emerge to the sea surface to take a breath. Upon request, along the level of tide, weather etc, then its possible to have a stop at the beach to give the guests a chance to take a dip at the wild beach of Pasir Panjang or Tanjung Rhu beach.

End of tour and drop off to meeting point

The last stop would be the infamous Kilim Geoforest Park giant signage where it can be the proof of the guests that they've been at Kilim before they will be taken back to Kilim Jetty, the exact same point where they started and thus the transport will be awaiting them at the jetty to take them back to their respective hotel around 3pm.

Outfit Recommendations

Wear swimwear under short pants and T-shirt, sandals or flip-flops, hat or cap and bring towel and enough sun protection.

Poor weather plan

1. We can postpone the trip to the later afternoon or the following day (depends on the situation).

2. If we're already arrived at the jetty, we can send you to the nearby Wildlife Park (it got roof all over that place so u may steal some time by watching the animals there - you have to buy your own ticket though)

3. For the worst case scenario, we will send you back to your hotel (FOC) after an hour wait but still no luck with the weather.
