Kayak to Local Oyster Farm & Ubin's Hidden WW2 Site (Private Trip)
Probably the most unique tour with the best guide in Singapore for nature lovers. We could enjoy the serenity of the flooded forests (timing with the tide) and rivers of ubin. Only birds, water and our kayaks. We just met a handful of kayakers and people on SUP ... where else do you have this peace in SG? Darren takes care of everything you need and more. I got excited every time he opened his bag: snacks, isotonic drinks, frozen grapes & many more came and random, but perfect times. OYSTERS grown in Singapore, fresh from the farm (where we picked them up) are consumed on the kayak, surrounded by the mangroves ... can it get better? Darren was extremely knowledgeable on plants, birds and beyond ... never a dull moment!

Private Ubin Mangrove Kayaking & Viewpoint Hike | With Kelong Lunch!
Awesome kayaking trip with friends to Pulau Ubin. From start to end, the trip was impeccably well-planned by our guide Darren. We got to see mangroves close up, learn about plants & animals (otters!!), and had lunch at a floating restaurant. Along the way, Darren surprised us with iced 100 Plus, frozen grapes and snacks. If you're thinking of doing something different over the weekend or spending holidays in Singapore, highly recommend!

☑️ Super enjoyable time kayaking through different parts of Ubin (customized to suit different fitness levels in the group 😂) ☑️ Learning about the biodiversity during the entire trip. Darren does a great job in explaining the different sights and sounds at every part of the trip. ☑️ Great workout, we did the easiest one but definitely looking forward to challenging ourselves soon by kayaking across the channel! ☑️ Super patient and informative guide - Darren! He will make it worth it to get out of bed early for this trip!👍🏻

We had an awesome time with Darren out on the waters! He was passionate, knowledgeable and had GREAT energy! Not forgetting that he also took good care of us! This kayaking tour would be great for anyone who loves nature and is interested to explore Singapore in a different way (while sneaking in some exercise at the same time😆). There is a lot to see and learn about mangroves, birds, and whatever organisms that Darren spots and shares about along the way. This is also a chance to enjoy the calming serenity on the waters at some points. Definitely would recommend this to all my friends!
