These boats leave from the boat quay and go along the river giving a different view of downtown. Going under the bridges instead of over them certianly gives another view. It also goes out to the Merlion fountain. The narration is recorded, so you can...More

The boats are electric so they are quite and a lot less messy than diesel/petrol powered ones which is a good job as this is Singapore's reservoir of fresh water. Enjoy a boat trip from Marina Bay Sands to Clarke Quay and find the noisy...More

It was very refreshing to sit outdoors at the back of the boat and take in the scenery of Clarke and Robertson Quay along with the Merlion and Marina bay Sands Hotel.

Very relaxing and enjoyable especially on a very hot evening leaving from Clarke Quay where many restaurants line the riverfront. This takes you to the Promenade where good photos can be taken of the Merlion.

When in Singapore this is a must do, it’s beautiful. Take a boat outside the Fullerton hotel as go as far as it will take you and back, check times as they can be far and few between.

Loved it, super evening cruise along the Singapore River with spectacular views of the lit-up buildings, bridges, iconic landmarks, hotels, restaurants, bars, etc. River light show at 7:45? fantastic (check boat timing to see the show). The highlight of our stay.

The Quays
From Marina Bay, a walk along Singapore River will
take you through the three Quays of the city, each
offering a very different atmosphere. Boat Quay
features historical sites and a buzzing riverfront
vibe. Clarke Quay caters to the party crowd, while
Robertson Quay appeals to the leisurely wanderer.
Weekends at Robertson Quay and Martin Road also give a
peek into the lives of expats in Singapore, as the
