The place is in a residential complex with quite clear signs once you enter the residential area, so it was not hard to find. Booking was easy with just an sms sent to the founder's number. I don't think booking is necessary though because they...More

It’s recommended to go there first time in the morning or at the afternoon right before sunset; because the Proboscis can not stand the heat of the sun 🌞 ☀️ Beautiful river and mangrove complete the scenery; and I personally suggest you to bring your...More

We went in a flat bottomed aluminium boat, with quiet outboard motor, and from the beginning, this experience was fascinating. As the tide was low, we touched the bottom a few times meandering through the dense, gnarled mangrove roots and lush vegetation. It felt a...More

Difficult to locate the place in the first instance, but once found it was a memorable trip. It cost 300,000rp to hire a boat with outboard motor and a guide. He said it would be half an hour but it was much more. You're taken...More

It was a worthy 45-60 minutes boat trip through the mangroves. Although we went there on a cloudy day, we enjoyed very much the cool breeze while seeing Bekantan

I am sure this place is the best thing to visit in Balikpapan. It's such a pleasant and peaceful place. I really enjoyed the boat trip and I was able to see many proboscis monkeys. I do recommend this place, but you should go there...More

Not that cheap, but very worth spending, especially considering that some of the fee is utilized for mangrove forest conservation effort by the locals. The boat trip costs 300 thousand rups. The service provider is friendly and helpful. They'll do their best to make sure...More
