The last few days has seen us take to the water in a number of ways.
Our expedition to Mulu involved some motorised long boats which sped us from our base in Mulu along the Melinau River to Henry’s village and to both Deer and Lang caves. Quite an experience just getting in and buckling up let alone the rapids (ok.. perhaps just the odd riffle!)
We took to the water again last night in one of the little passenger ferries across the Kuching River to explore the other side from the hotel giving us the opportunity to walk back across the fabulous bridge. Not a long crossing by any means but the ferryman could see we all knew what we were doing!
On Wednesday we must have looked like true professionals. Arriving at the jetty early in the morning we clambered into boats that skimmed the surface of both the Bako and Kuching Rivers at high speed taking us for yet another adventure on the Muara Tebas peninsula and Bako National Park.
Those that weren’t sure about about water transport before are now all very enthusiastic sailors!!
