Fancy a sunset cruise along the Port Dickson coastline?
Beginning this month, a local tour operator has made it possible for residents and holiday-makers in this popular seaside town to hop on a boat for a relaxing sunset cruise.
The cruise takes guests from the Marine Department passenger jetty to the Sepang coastline and right down to Cape Rachado along the Negri Sembilan-Malacca border and back.
Although it is a “no frills” ride, the boat journey does give guests a great view of the sun setting against the PD backdrop and glimpses of sights that cannot be easily seen from land like the lighthouse at Cape Rachado, the Jimah Power Plant and also of passing ships sailing across the Malacca StraitsPD Travel and Tours managing director Yaacob Hussin said he came up with the idea for a sunset cruise after going on a river cruise in Kuching.
“When I came back, I decided we could start something like that here — a sunset cruise along the coastline.
“Since I was already running a boat service from PD to Dumai, Sumatra, I thought we could use the same boats for evening cruises,” he said at the launch of the sunset cruise service recently.
To start off, the sunset cruise aboard the Acob Express 1 and 2 will be offered twice weekly, on Friday and Saturday evenings.Yaacob said the frequency of trips would be increased if there was a favourable response from guests

“This is just the beginning, ours is the first such service in Port Dickson and we hope it will become another must-do to add to the list of things to see and experience here. the frequency of trips would be increased if there was a favourable response from guests.
