From November to February each year, the murky waters in the estuary of the Bang Pakong River play host to the Irrawaddy dolphin. They come to give birth to their calves and you can see them early in the morning while they are feeding on the eel catfish.

Important Information This is a nature tour, so we cannot guarantee that you will see these dolphins. Unlike other dolphins, Irrawaddy Dolphins are shy and will not swim alongside boats or humans, and when scared can dive underwater for 12 minutes. So patience is required, but the rewards are wonderful.
