Eagle feeding tours, Kuala Selangor

Eagle feeding tours in Kuala Selangor take place in Pasir Penambang, one of 3 places where visitors may also experience Kuala Selangor’s fireflies.


Eagle feeding in Kuala Selangor is a spectacular sight that takes place in Pasir Penambang near the mouth of Selangor River (Sungai Selangor).

The brahminy kite, or red-backed sea-eagle, is the most common type of eagle you will find here. Other species that may be spotted include white-bellied sea eagles and crested serpent eagles.

The main feeding areas of these majestic birds of prey are concentrated around Selangor River’s mouth, near Kuala Selangor Nature Park and the magical fireflies park, another of the area’s wonders of nature.

The eagle feeding boat ride

A speed boat takes you about 20 minutes up river from the starting point. The vessel’s engines are then switched off to avoid scaring off the eagles.

The boatman will then throw bait in the form of chicken skin into the river for the eagles to retrieve.

Moments later, as many as 30 to 40 eagles will circle the sky and surround the area, swooping in fast towards the river with great precision for the food.

The act is repeated about 4 times, with the feeding session lasting about 20 minutes.

The boat will then travel back down river towards the embarkation point for about 15 minutes before dropping passengers off.

Opening hours

Kuala Selangor’s eagle feeding tours take place between 3pm and 6.45pm.
