What You Can Expect

Pulau Ubin Mangrove Kayak Adventure from Singapore

Kayaking on Pulau Ubin

Your kayaking tour starts on Pulau Ubin, so you’ll need to make your own way to the small island from Singapore via a 10-minute bumboat ride. When you arrive, meet your experienced guide in front of the National Parks Information Kiosk.

During a tour orientation, your guide will outfit you with your kayak and necessary gear and demonstrate paddling techniques so you can safely maneuver your kayak on the water. Then head into the mangroves, paddling in pairs through the lush waterscape. Listen to your guide tell you about this marine environment and its biological diversity while you watch for wildlife like otters, jellyfish, hermit crabs and maybe even pink dolphins. You’ll also spot—or maybe just hear—bird species such as Oriental-pied hornbills, white-bellied sea eagles and black-capped kingfishers.

By the end of your kayak tour, you’ll have a new appreciation for Singapore’s native plant and wildlife, as well as the serene atmosphere of this rural island so close to the skyscrapers and bustle of downtown Singapore.

5 star rating: Highly Recommended August 2017

Amazing kayaking tour. Very easy to get from downtown Singapore To changi ferry terminal changi jetty about 30 song dollars . Bum boat ride is 2 dollars to the island but go early as lines for boats will get long. And although it may not say it on viatour but bring extra clothes as it is recommend you get in the water to test your PFD. You dont have to but you should. Also wear plenty of sunscreen as it is a long trip. And bring some water and snacks. Afterwards rent a bike for the day and tour the island. Climb up the trails and take in the views. This island is beautiful. Definitely make it a day trip

This is a awesome tour! Its great to get out of the hussle and bussle of Singapore and actually see some wildlife. It is so quiet I actually felt I was in a Rainforest or something like that. Its well worth a visit and our tour guide was very knowledgeable.

Amazing, and excellent escape from the hustle and bustle of the city. Didn't see many animals, only one monitor lizard but really enjoyed the peace of the mangroves. I was alone with the guide on my tour due to the Chinese New Year so it was a little quicker than the estimated time but was amazing.

Incredible experience, I was expecting a light paddling on the seashore... instead it was really physical and it looked like on a movie set, we really were in the wild jungle!

Fun morning in the mangroves on pulau us in, our guide was very friendly and knowledgable. We had a great time it's well worth doing just to escape the city life for a few hrs. The equipment was well maintained and looked after.
