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!

Absolutely fabulous time kayaking around the mangroves of this beautiful island. I would so recommend this tour to anyone who wants to experience a side of Singapore that most people don't see. Our tour guide Vere was just brilliant, patient, professional, well informed, he made the experience perfect. I really want to do the full day tour now!

I wish I did not have to leave a negative review as I am sure this is a wonderful tour... when you have the chance to participate. Unfortunately our tour was cancelled due to a downpour on the island that lasted all afternoon. I do not blame the operator for the weather. I am unhappy with the fact that we... More

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 byproducts of having such beautiful surroundings is that there is little "civilization" close by so... 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 age and having just graduated from his Diploma in Outdoor Adventure a few week back!... 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 year old nephew. The information on the website doesn't really explain that this option is... 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.

Wonderful kayaking trip at Ubin island. Our guide JC was excellent. He is equipped with knowledge of the mangroves and very helpful for amateurs like us. We were lucky that the tide was changing from low to high, it was easy to kayak into the mangroves when you are not against the tide. The shower facilities were adequate, it's always... More

Our second time kayaking with Ubin Kayak. It is a nice way of exploring the island as you get close to wildlife and get to see the great mangroves as well as pick garbage which unfortunately is plentiful. The kayaks is perhaps the least enjoyable part of the trips as they are heavy to paddle, especially if you are used... More

Expensive disappointment! Travelled from bottom to top of Singapore in rush hour traffic in order to get to Pulau Ubin for a 9:30 start – only to find no instructor there and the stall shut up, despite confirming our attendance the day before as directed. Luckily (as tourists!) my partner had a Singapore phone, which we used to call the... More
