Klotok or traditional wooden boat is as one of transportation in Kalimantan and in Tanjung Puting, we have designed it for tourist. On the boat we have several crews can make your trip perfect, local tour guide (English, Bahasa, and local language available), Captain, assistant captain, and a cook.

There’s history about why we called “klotok”for the boat. It is because the boat’s engine sounds “tok..tok..tok.”. Then, it became popular with local people or tourists to say “Kelotok”!
