Overview

Cruising since 1987. For more than a decade and a half, bumboats have been plying the Singapore River. The story of Singapore River Cruise begins in 1987. The "Clean Rivers Campaign" of 1983 saw the relocation of bumboats to Pasir Panjang. The familiar painted faces of our Bumboats were due to disappear from its home, until SRC was awarded the tender license to run river services here - the first also, to operate such services along the river. We are entering a new chapter in the Singapore River story. In this modern age, Bumboats on this historic waterway remind us of its rustic charm. SRC has been preserving the heritage of this important river for more than two decades. Its bumboats have become the icon of our river to visitors and locals alike. 2008 was a year when our iconic bumboats underwent a transformation. The diesel-powered engines of SRC's fleet made way for a new generation of electric ones that boast quieter engines and zero CO2 emissions. These are the very boats that operate along the Singapore River today. SRC is committed to greater excellence. Under its strong management, the company has developed a firm network of channel intermediaries from government agencies, embassies, event organizers and other operators in the tourism sector, both local and overseas. From a humble fleet of 4 bumboats in 1987, SRC has since increased its number to 24 today with a few new additions coming onboard soon.

The whole experience was good but not something I would highly recommend. It is good if you have an extra day

We had an extra night with us and thus we tried to see whole of the city again in the lights. One of the quietest of the evenings we spend there. The Cruise releases after every 30 mins and carries whatever passengers it has. We...More

The cruise is a great way of seeing Singapore from a different viewpoint. Lots of photo opportunities on the cruise. Personally I found the pre-recorded commentary rather annoying. The woman commentator made some odd jokes about slave labour and police torture. Despite this I do...More

You can feel the night view of Singapore and listen the audio explained about the attractions on the boat. You can also visit Clark Quay which is a great night life after boat tour.

Your hotel may sell tickets (at a premium) and there are lots of vendor stalls around. Prices may vary, so be prepared to haggle.
