Phase 2 Heightened Alert Notice:From July 21 - August 18, 2021, only 2-pax bookings will be accepted. SerendipET will NOT accept bookings for >2 friends/ family in one session.Activity capacity is reduced to 16 pax maximum (consists of distinct groups of 2 pax).Participants will not hike up to Puaka Hill. Instead, they will explore different parts of Ubin via kayaking.The activity starting time will be between 8 to 10 am. Participants will be informed of the exact timing closer to the date of the activity.Specially designed for all adventure seekers, this kayaking trip is the perfect introduction to the Pulau Ubin mangroves (no kayaking experience required)! Suitable for kids 4+ and up, under their parents' supervision. This experience is also pet-friendly (so long as your pet can fit in the kayak). Option Highlights✅ Gorgeous mangrove views to get upclose to nature ✅ Heartfelt kayak guides who will introduce the wildlife of the area to you✅ Short hike up Puaka Hill, the highest point of Ubin, for stunning views✅ Rare chance to see local kelongs from upclose (floating fish farms)More DetailsThis option is one of the most comprehensive out there and good for kayakers of all levels (beginners welcome!). Apart from just kayaking, you will get to hike up Puaka Hill to enjoy the sight of Malaysia just across the border and get a glimpse of the beautiful Granite Quarry! Its blue waters and lush greeneries are reminiscent of lakes in New Zealand (the best we can get to travelling these days!).On the way back, visit the local Kampung houses to sneak a peek at the lives of the past generations. You will also get to buy fresh fish directly from local fishermen in the kelongs if you'd like! This is often the highlight for many locals as it provides a rare glimpse into the life of local fishermen. Please Note: SerendipET provides open double kayaks, and has a limited number of single kayaks which are used only in the event there is an odd number of participants. Due to the nature of this activity, it's almost 100% chance you will get wet (including your trousers and shoes!). Please wear clothing that you don't mind getting wet. Child-FriendlyThis experience is suitable for children from the age of 4 and up, provided they know how to swim. Child life jackets will be provided.

A
Hi Jane, Thank you for your question, Yes! You and your children can join this kayaking trip, please check our calendar to see the schedule :)
Q
Hi, are we able to use our SingaporeRediscover vouchers for this?
A
Hi Audrey, SerendipET isn't registered for SingaporeRediscover, so you won't be able to use the vouchers here.
Q
Hi, can kids aged 5-7 join? My husband and I could take one of them in each kayak.
A
Hi Camila! Thank you for your questions. Yess! Your kids can join as long as they are comfortable :)
Q
What time do I need to be at Changi Point Ferry Terminal in order to reach Pulau Ubin at the meeting time?
A
The bumboats operate non-stop so you don't need to wait very long for one. We would advise being at Changi jetty about 20-25 mins before the meeting time at Pulau Ubin (allowing 10-15 mins max for waiting time, 10 mins for the bum boat ride)
Q
What happens in case of rain? Will I get a refund?
A
If it is a slight drizzle, the trip will go ahead as planned. However if there is heavy rain, the trip will be cancelled. At that point, you can choose to reschedule or receive a refund. The final decision is up to the guide. Usually they will inform you in the morning of the day of the trip.
