Together with our experienced guides, paddle in pairs along the coast and enter the mangroves of Pulau Ubin. Appreciate the wonders of nature against a backdrop of endless greenery and learn about the amazing works of Earth's ecology. Eco-friendly kayaks, dewy fresh air and the cooing and buzzing of birds, this is definitely ultimate tranquility, with lots of fun! On arrival, your guide will help you get outfitted in good quality gear before you glide off the beach in a tandem kayak to begin your Mangrove Kayaking Adventure on Pulau Ubin. Kingfishers, Eagles, Hornbills, Herons and Egrets are some of the many species of birds often spotted. More difficult to spot will be the family of otters or the two pods of pink river dolphins we have, on occasion, chanced-upon. Rain or shine, this is quite simply the finest half-day kayak trip you will find in Singapore. Certified guides lead an entertaining sea and mangrove route that is limited to 20 participants. This is an easy to moderate adventure, which requires no previous experience or skill, making it perfect for beginners and families. You need only bring yourself, a change of clothes and an appetite for adventure. Join us now for a true Mangrove Eco-Adventure experience!

Sean was our tour guide. He had a very strong command of his kayak and we always felt very safe. The experience was amazing because there were so many streams and relatively remote passageways that exhibit the breathtaking nature of Palau Ubin. One of the...More

I love water sports and decided to give the Ubin Bisect a try. Basically, this activity involves canoeing from the North of Pulau Ubin to the South through the mangrove swamp. Our guide, "Jacy" was friendly, knowledgeable and connects with us well despite his young...More

After reading some mixed reviews here on Trip Advisor I wasn't quite sure what to expect. I was originally looking for a longer paddle but the Ubin Bisect wasn't available. I chose to do the mangrove paddle with my 11 year old son and 21...More

This is a wonderful way to spend a morning in Singapore! It really showcases another side to the hustle and bustle of Singapore. I highly recommend it. I had a fantastic time.
