On the confluence of the Rajang and Igan Rivers, 70 miles from the South China Sea, Sibu is the second largest town in Sarawak. It is a thriving, modern town dominated by its bustling and crowded waterfront.

Anchor on either side of the 1-mile wide river, keeping well clear of the central channel and busy barge traffic. Best holding is off the famous Sibu Swan sculpture past the ferry piers near the Kingwood Hotel.

Oil rig obstructions

Brunei and Sarawak Oilfield rigs extend south west of Miri. These active production rigs are well lit but there are plenty of heavy-duty wellheads and mooring buoys remaining unlit purposely to avoid petty theft of batteries, solar panels and lights. These steel hazards can be extremely difficult to see, especially when backlit by an active rig. Keep a good night lookout when amongst these rigs.
