Captain Mazhazli Bin Jamaludin, Pilot Superintendent of the Malyasian Pilots told us that he had not been authorized by the Marine Department for me to take a photoshoot of the work of the pilots. He felt very sorry and offered us a guided tour to the pilotboats in the harbor. In Port Klang there is an open connection to the Strait of Malacca and a pilot trip takes about half an hour. The pilots have to deal with wind and sometimes  very heavy rainfall. Capt. Mahazli escorted us to the maingate of Westports where we got our passports back.

I have made contact with Captain Mazhazli Bin Jamaludin, Pilot Superintendent of Marine Department. He invited me to visit the pilots in Port Klang. On the way from Penang to Singapore, we planned an overnight stay in Klang. The next day we were searching for Westports of Port Klang. Westports is the gateway to the harbors of Port Klang.
