Details

Details

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 - ~20kg is still ok!). More DetailsThis option is one of the most comprehensive out there and good for kayakers of all levels (beginners welcome!). 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 that a visit to the kelong may not be possible given the additional distance which is required to paddle. This is only possible if everyone in the group is strong enough to add the additional distance required. 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. Pet-Friendly You can bring your pets on the kayak with you. Please do let us know when you book if you intend to bring your pet. Depending on the size of your pet (ie whether you’re ok squeezing with it on a kayak), you can have two dogs on a two person kayak. We have had customers bring their dog around 20kg on the kayak before - the general rule of thumb is that if you don’t mind squeezing with your dog on the kayak, it’s ok with SerendipET. Note: when bringing your pet across from Changi Ferry Terminal to Pulau Ubin Jetty, you must have your pet in a carrier while onboard the bumboat. Otherwise you may be denied permission to enter or be required to charter the entire bumboat rather than pay the usual per person fee. Frequently Asked QuestionsAre there crocodiles in the mangroves?There are usually no crocodiles towards the eastern side of Singapore, especially due to the high amount of traffic along the channel you will be at. Crocodiles spotted tend to be at the northern side of Singapore like Sungei Buloh as there is far less traffic in the water and the water is usually empty from human activities too.What time we should take the ferry from Changi Point Ferry Terminal so that we are on time to arrive at Pulau Ubin Entrance Jetty at 8.30am?The bumboats operate non-stop so you don't need to wait very long for one. We would advise being at Changi jetty about 25-30 mins before the meeting time at Pulau Ubin (allowing 10-15 mins max for waiting time, 10 mins for the bumboat ride) 
Min 4 persons requirement:
Please note that this experience require a minimum of 4 persons to proceed. You may book for fewer than 4 persons, but if there are fewer than 4 persons booked for the date, you may be asked to reschedule to another date.

It's everything as described... except cannot visit the floating fish farms yet due to covid restrictions. Looking fwd to another trek later this year to spend more time in the mangroves and enjoy the special place they are. Request to all future paddlers: pls pickup one piece of floating rubbish and put in a bin!

Had a great experience. Lead guide Sin Hao was really encouraging and helpful. The other guides were knowledgeable about the wildlife and area and provided interesting information. Would be good to know the prices of drinks and things and how much cash to bring to the shops next time. I personally had a great time!
