Brunei's Muara Port is accessible to the largest cruise ships visiting Borneo.
A traditional welcome greets many cruise ship visitors to Brunei.

Brunei is a popular cruise ship destination because numerous attractions and activities can be enjoyed within a day's visit. For example, see Borneo's unique Proboscis Monkey, enjoy white water rafting in the best protected rainforest on Borneo, dive on the historic wrecks in Brunei Bay, view the lush tropical rainforest from the Canopy Walkways at Ulu Temburong National Park, take tea in  a local water village home,  visit one of Brunei's spectacular mosques, see the Tamu (local market), enjoy lunch overlooking Brunei River and water village. 

Intrepid Tours has developed a range of natural and cultural heritage oriented visitor experiences, along with activities options such as golf, snorkeling and diving, to make your cruise ship stop in Brunei interesting informative and fun.

Take advantage of the convenient and quick access to nearby attractions and venues to see a slice of Borneo when you stop in Brunei.

Around Bandar Seri Begawan, our tour programmes take visitors to  numerous attractions, museums, and local lifestyle experiences. Our guide's information - far more than can be found in a travel book - helps to create an understanding of what gives Brunei it's uniqueness. 

The venues we visit and the guides' information are designed to give our clients an insight into the present lifestyle of Brunei; a unique combination of modern day services and facilities, with traditional cultural and religious values, mixed with rapid economic growth and social change since Brunei took control of it's oil and gas wealth, and charted it's own future.

Intrepid Tours has created tour programmes and activity options  specially tailored to the arrival and departure schedule of cruise ships. Many of our established tours can be adapted to suite the available time.

Brunei is a small country, with effective transport and communication networks. Getting to venues, activities and attractions is quick, with minimal traffic congestion. Take advantage of the numerous opportunities for special interest activities within a short drive of the Muara Port.

Golf is very popular in Brunei, with three top class but very different courses within 30 minutes drive of the port.

 Choose your course for it's degree of difficulty and the adjacent facilities. For those visitors looking for a challenge, the RBGCC course is known to be the "Augusta of Asia".

Diving and snorkeling is another popular activity in Brunei, for locals and visitors. Attractive reefs and wrecks are within about 30 minutes boat travel time of Muara Port.

Brunei's protected reefs are a haven for marine wildlife and a popular dive venue which attract local and international divers. Boats depart from nearby the Muara Port cruise ship berth.

There are four wrecks in and adjacent to Brunei Bay, all easily accessible for a day's diving. With depths from 12 to 30 metres, they suit both Open Water and Advanced Open Water divers.

Our Mangrove Safari tour takes cruise ship visitors to see some of Borneo's  intruiging wildlife nearby to central Bandar Seri Begawan.  The distribution of oil and gas income in Brunei means people have sufficient money to "hunt" in the supermarket, so Borneo's unique wildlife is still found living nearby to urban areas.

From the centre of Bandar Seri Begawan, take a short boat ride to explore the mangroves adjacent to the Sultan's Palace, where Proboscis Monkey and Macaques are regularly seen, along with crocodiles, monitor lizards , snakes and other Borneo wildlife.
