Dolphin Spotting and Sightseeing Tours
- Trip code:
You will be picked up by your guide and local remok (tuk tuk) or motor bike from the hotel in Kratie and travel on the old national route 7 along the river bank towards Kampi. One of the many deep pools where the rare river dolphins gather to feed. Along the way, we journey pass through a village that produces the delicious snacks, famous sticky rice packed in bamboo (krolan) and pickle raw fish in banana leaf (Nhem). Thma Kreae village is particularly famous for Krolan. This tasty snack is famous all over Cambodia and locals would never leave Kratie Province without buying a stock for relatives and friends back home. A must to try at least once.
Having arrived to Kampi, we board a local boat and cruise out into the mighty Mekong for a chance encounter with these gentle mammals. Viewing is guaranteed. Tour boats will take you closer to these shy and sensitive mammals. If you listen carefully you might hear the dolphin breath through the blowhole on the top of its head. After enjoying an hour or more of dolphin viewing, we travel back to Kratie.

What our Customers say
Excellent experience with these guys. Unfortunately had to postpone due to travel issues and they were incredibly helpful, went the next week and loved it. Arranged everything via email before arrival to Kratie, picked us up in a Tuk Tuk as requested and took us to the site. During the journey we were given lots of interesting information (excellent English) and offered some traditional foods. The tour itself was amazing! Just the two of us, our guide and the driver on the boat, took us out to a very peaceful spot where we sat for well over an hour watching the incredible river dolphins. Free drinks were provided for us too. Once we were ready, we were taken back home.

It was just my brother and I with the amazing tour guide who has grown up and lived in Kratie his whole life so knows everything you could possibly want to know! Excellent English and was happy to answer all or our questions on the way. (About the trip and anything else). Had the boat to ourselves and we saw the dolphins as soon as we were in the river, the whole time we were out we kept seeing the dolphins. It was truly an amazing experience! Afterwards he took us to the rapids which is only there for 3 months of the year and is where locals go to chill out. The perfect guide with all the local knowledge you need. Worth every penny.
