Experience adventure on a jet ski with a partner as a tour guide whisks you away to eight different islands, a few of which are Singa Besar Island, Dayang Bunting Island and Beras Basah Island for exploring, swimming and eagle-watching!
Hop onto a jet ski with a partner as a tour guide leads you on a visit to eight islands, and stop by three of them for a little exploring adventure! Ride on the waves of the Andaman sea with your partner and explore the three islands on your itinerary for the tour: Singa Besar Island (Big Lion Island), Dayang Bunting Island (Pregnant Maiden Island), and Beras Basah Island (Wet Rice Island).
At Singa Besar Island, eagles are fed chicken meat by feeders at certain times of the day. At these times, you will be able to see dozens of white-bellied fish eagles and kite eagles familiar with the feeding times flying in from every direction to fill their hungry bellies. Eagles aren’t the only birds that this island is home to, as its sanctuary hosts peacocks as well, along with mammals such as monkeys and mousedeer. Beautiful beaches can also be found on the edges of the island, where sunlight glints off the gentle ebb and flow of rolling waves on the pristine sand.
Dayang Bunting Island is next on your itinerary to visit, and it boasts a beautiful, freshwater lake called Lake Guillermard. It is said that if you look at the hills of the island from a certain angle, you can make out the outline of what looks like a pregnant woman lying on her back. There is also a story behind the island’s name, and it tells of a princess named Mambang Sari who fell pregnant after marrying a man named Mat Teja. Unfortunately, their son failed to live for long, and they sent off his body on the waters of the lake. People believe that if a barren woman takes a dip in the water here, she will become fertile and bear a child.
If you want to take a break from the hot sun beating down upon your back, you can have a swim in the refreshing lake, whose perimeter is lined with a forest of mangrove trees. On the island, there is also a limestone cave called Gua Langsir (Cave of the Banshee), and wildlife such as hornbills, kingfishers, monkeys and monitor lizards call the island their home, too. The lush greenery provides these animals with their safe habitats, and also provides plenty of shade to those who venture into it.
The final island to explore is Beras Basah Island, so ride your jet ski on over to it with your partner in tow and your guide in the lead. The beaches on this island boast immaculate sandy shores and crystal-clear waters that feel amazing to swim in, so do so, as the palm trees on land wave at you through the breeze. Do some sightseeing on land as well if you wish to, as the island has much more to offer than what meets the eye. Just be cautious of naughty monkeys that lay in hiding, as they’re always on the lookout for unattended bags, thinking that food is in them.
