12:00pm departure, 4 hour cruise/tour. Delicious lunch on the Mekong (made-to-order), guided tour of silk farms, also see pagodas, and plantations. Full bar, cocktails, coffee, and ala carte menu available for purchase on board. $34 with lunch and snacks, $24 cruise only. Kids under 12 half-price.
Your journey begins with free pickup inside central Phnom Penh. Upon boarding you will receive a free Sunset Cocktail, a Cambo Cruise original. After departure, at approximately 12:30pm, a lunch made from fresh, local, organic food is served that is prepped and cooked just for you on our boat in our stainless steel kitchens; never on land hours before, and definitely not on a rusty charcoal grill. No fish from the river is served, ever. Salad, spring rolls, organic brown rice, fruit, fresh bread, sandwiches, and a variety BBQ with Texas style BBQ and Asian Teriyaki sauce is available. There are low-carb, vegetarian, vegan, and halal options available.
At the bar, most any cocktails can be made, but be sure and try an original signature cocktail. We also serve local and imported beers, as well as wines by the glass or carafe. Fresh, locally grown coffee beans are ground just before brewing to ensure fantastic espresso, and coffee.
Cruising along the Phnom Penh riverfront enjoy the view from the upper deck or down on the main deck for a more cozy experience near the bar. Passing the Royal Palace, see the junction of the Tonle Sap, Mekong, and Bassac rivers. Up the Mekong River you will see floating villages and fishing families living on their boats. The trip to Silk Island takes about 1 hour.
Docking at Silk Island you are a short ride away from the silk farms. Along the way you can view plantations, pagodas, and see village life. At the silk farms you can watch the intricate process of silk being made from larvae to finished goods. Tour guides will be provided.
The boat will be open for food, drinks, relaxing or for using the facilities while in port.
On the 1-hour ride back to Phnom Penh cool off with a cocktail. Snacks will be provided.
The Cambo Cruise boat is a newly constructed vessel designed solely with lunch/dinner cruising in mind. With 365 degree views from the top, it has 140 seats with a rustic, wooden, Cambodian design with modern touches. It is equipped three toilets, men’s, women's, and staff's, running water from fresh water tanks, and a water filtration system for clean, purified drinking water. Hygiene, safety, and guest satisfaction are our priorities. A large commercial kitchen with floor to ceiling stainless steel walls and appliances, and rubber flooring is designed to prepare food for up to 120 guests in short order. The boat is licensed, inspected, and has staff that are well trained in safety and first-aid procedures, with flotation devices, safety equipment, and fire extinguishers onboard. No other boat in Phnom Penh can offer you all of these things.
