      Kayaking Adventure Pulau Ubin
      What a fantastic day, although very hot, it was very enjoyable and we saw parts of Singapore that tourists may not normally get to. Pulau Ubin must be like Singapore of old was, water, fishing boats, jungle - a real contrast the city across the water. The kayaking was not too difficult at all and fine for beginners and older people like me and my husband. I could put my feet in the water to cool off! Any water splashes were welcome. Daniel and Ethan were highly organised and looked after our group perfectly, giving us the safety low down, outfitting us with life vests and kayaks, teaching the way paddle, taking us on our kayak route and waiting for any kayakers who were a bit slower. As well as kayaking, we visited a little shrine on the land, then hopped back in our kayaks and returned to the starting point. Probably 2.5 to 3 hours on the water all up. Wildlife - We saw a few sea-eagles, including one with a fish that it had caught. We followed our morning with a lovely lunch at the restaurant next door to the kayak building, recommended by the guides. I found out about this through SingapoRewards via the Visit Singapore website, and if you satisfy the conditions, you might be eligible for a free tour (there's loads on offer), I chose this as it sounded fun and I wanted to visit Pulau Ubin anyway. It was a great choice.

      Super Scenic Trip!

      Relaxing adventure!
      I didn't know that an active adventure can be associated with relaxation until I tried the mangrove kayaking in Pulau Ubin. Not your typical physical exercise! The mangroves and the surrounding environment will give your mind the relaxation and utmost peacefulness, and we saw hornbills during our break at the drinking stall, it perfectly completed our kayaking adventure.

      good experience
      We enjoyed the tour and mangrooves. Our guide was very informative and helpful . We got caught in a terrible rain storm so had to take shelter in the mangrooves area and our kids really liked that added bonus. The palau island is EXTREMELY DIRTY and the water is also EXTREMELY DIRTY. Dead fish everywhere and terrible

      Good experience.
      Overall it's a great experience. But the downside is that it ended 1.5 hours earlier than expected. Shall try out the mangrove kayaking the next time round.

      Awesome morning
      Awesome morning out! Our guide Sheng Min was extremely friendly and very passionate. We really learned a lot about the surroundings of Pulau Ubin and also got in a bit of a workout and some sun. She was also very understanding towards some special needs of people in our group. 5 Stars for the programme and 5 Stars to Sheng min!

      great kayaking adventure
      It was a fun and relaxing little tour. the tour guide syafiq was very friendly and easy to talk to, he is also knowledgable and was flexible to make tweaks to his original program because the paddlers were all rather proficient, we got to paddle right next among the mangrove trees between the shallow sections. it was interesting to learn about the different type of kelongs as well as the type of wildlife that can be found in singapore. In all a very enjoyable tour.

      Good experience to get to know a different part of Singapore
      A relaxing and enjoyable trip where we learnt so much about Pulau Ubin and also the surrounding kelongs / fish farms and nature. Would be wonderful if it was less pricey.

      Wonderful Backyard of Singapore
      Asian Detours had everything organised and we enjoyed a hassle free day at Pulau Ubin. The Paddle to Pedal program wasn't too difficult, even my 7+ years old boy could keep up and had lots of fun. Only down side is that the water off Pulau Ubin where we had to kayak around was very dirty and filled with rubbish! Note to self and others - we have to do our parts to take care of Mother Earth!

      This was more than a kayaking trip, we learned so much about the wildlife and the mangrove from Brenda, our awesome guide who was so passionate! An absolute enjoyable time away from the city being in the waters & coming close to nature! Would definitely recommend!

      It was an absolutely great time out at the sea and away from the city for a change. Grateful for a guide who is passionate about the environment, and shared with us plenty about the habitat and nature around ubin. Will definitely recommend

    The length and distance of the tour was just nice. Our guide was knowledgeable of the mangrove route and armed with some interesting facts, made the tour even more enjoyable, especially for the kids!
    Kayaking was definitely a good call to avoid the hiking and cycling crowd on the island.

    Make sure to pack bring enough water and some candy for the midway recharge!
    Water is available for purchase on Ubin island.
    Fun day out!

    Thanks Mangrove Kayaking Adventure!

    Me and my son went kayaking to the mangroves on the 27th of october. It was a sunny day and the trip was very beautiful. Also the instructor was knowledgable and in good mood even as our fellow canoeists. In shortly we very enjoyed this wonderful trip. If I may give critisicm, I saw many carbage in the mangrove area. It should be nice if your company set a good example to clean that up once a month, or clean it up once a week. That should be better for Flora and fauna and your company does a good thing for humankind.

    The guide - Bennett - was knowledgeable, a great conversationalist and friendly too. This activity is capped at 8 participants to allow for maximum interaction but we lucked out and there were only 4 of us on a Saturday.

    We not only saw the mangroves but got to also explore the 'side alleys' along the mangroves and at one point even got the chance to swim if we wanted to. The activity was easy to do & friendly for beginners. It's a total distance of about 7km but it's much easier on water in a kayak.

    Had a great time at Pulau Ubin! Leonard, our guide gave us plenty of time to explore around the area after sharing with us about how the mangrove is formed, the trees/plants, among many other things. We also got to kayak past the fish farms. He was very knowledgeable and ensured that we were all doing okay. Thanks for tolerating the two noisy girls! Had a great experience moving along the mangrove without having to paddle and also paddling against the current. Something that everyone should try at least once!

    Was a first time for the kids and the whole experience was amazing! Our guide (Jonathan) was wonderful with the kids. His patience and gentle encouragement allowed us to step out of our comfort zone with ease. The 4 hours flew past quickly, and it was an extremely fruitful learning session, even for me!

    The tour started out on time and the place was easy to find if you follow the instructions given. I love that our guide (MAC) was spaced out our kayaking journey with sufficient rest in between and shared many interesting stories / history about Ubin. After everything, there was also many cubicles provided to do a simple rinse and change into clean clothing. Will definitely recommend to my friends!

    Great excursion. XuYong was a terrific guide. It's a beautiful area, and the kayaking was a lot of fun. Our group had a blast. We saw sea otters frolicking by the shore. Total time for the actual kayaking was about 2 hours. Facilities are rustic, including place to rinse off. (Don't expect nice showers.) Be sure to bring a bag water-proof bag to keep valuables dry. (The sporting goods store Decathlon sells such items.) I would have been convenient to bring a special phone pouch (so that I would not have had to keep taking my phone out of the bag to take photos), but it was still OK. Expect some fare negotiation on the ferry ride over (somewhat annoying, since the ferry terminal looked pretty official, so didn't expect that from the small boat captains at all). Be sure to get to ferry terminal early.

    A trip to Pulau Ubin is always great. We visit regularly to hike, bike and spot wildlife. This was our first time kayaking the mangroves. It was really neat to see the island from a different angle.

    Isaac was a knowledgeable and friendly guide who pointed out different animals and landmarks along the way, weaving in tidbits about Singapore and Pulau Ubin history.

    It was a great experience! The route is a mix of a bit wavy current and a peaceful one. Felt like we are out of Singapore. The guides are friendly too! They will also take your photo with their camera and have been provided to us after 3 days. We have a free shower too in their backyard. Definitely recommendable!

    The whole program was a very pleasant experience. It was very smooth going and the duration was just nice. Eric, our guide, was very knowledgable about Ubin as he gave us nuggets of information throughout the program. He also helped us take wonderful shots along the way for our memories, and we are really grateful for that. 10/10 would recommend this program for everyone!
