Took their ferry service to St John's Island.

The ticketing booth was easy to find: orange color, the only one in the whole Marina South Pier, so you can't miss it. The staff at the booth was and helpful, and the transaction was fast and no fuss.

The ferry was basic. Aircondition not working well, toilet was flooded and badly maintained. But the ferry got us to our destination, and the journey was smooth.

We were quite surprised that the ferry did not adhere to the schedule strictly. On the return journey, they actually waited for passengers who came back late (including those who took their own sweet time and assumed that everyone would wait for them).

The reality is that if you miss the last ferry back to Singapore, you're essentially stranded on the island until the next day, and there are no accommodation or sources of food and water on the island. So the ferry crew were being nice and responsible. However, this knowledge might have caused some people to assume that, because the ferry will wait, they can board the ferry late.

Anyway, being the only ferry operator that has daily scheduled trips to St John's Island and Kusu Island, they did their job well. Nothing to complain.

If you are a nature lover and is in Singapore for a few days, do check out the Singapore Weather Forecast before heading to Marina South Pier to take a bumboat or Singapore Island Cruise ferry to St. John then hop over to Kusu Islands. Lazarus and Seringat Islands are linked to St. John Island with a concrete and firm link. To get to Kusu Island, remember to get the ferry schedule and time yourself so that you will not miss the ferry from St. John to Kusu Island. You will be enjoying a windy, sunny and fun time on these islands. The beaches and water is clear and nice. There are toilets located there, so no worry. However, you need to bring your own sandwiches and beverages along. Bring your swim suite and swimming gear along too. Binoculars if you want to catch glimpse of the birds, butterflies, etc. there. If you love cats, St. John island is the place. When you alight at St. John Island, walk to the left, enjoy the view and the beach, then move on to Lazarus Island and then the tiny Seringat Island. From the link between Lazarus and Seringat Island, you can take a great photo of Singapore Sisters Island. If you really enjoy nature and relaxing time, then can take 9am or 11am ferry on Sat or Sun. For weekday the first ferry is at 10am. Then at 3.30pm take similar ferry from St. John to Kusu Island. The last ferry leaving from Kusu Island to mainland Singapore is about 6pm. For more scenic information, take a look at some of my photos. Taken with handphone.
