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.

You can take the river cruise to see downtown Singapore area along the river. Best time to visit is from 6 or 7 pm so you can see the nice sunset and the night view. You can see all the nice buildings and attraction spots...More

A must is to see the Marina Bay light show but even better to do on the river cruise boats. They are super close and get a great view! make sure you sit outside on the boat for the best view!

The Quays
From Marina Bay, a walk along Singapore River will
take you through the three Quays of the city, each
offering a very different atmosphere. Boat Quay
features historical sites and a buzzing riverfront
vibe. Clarke Quay caters to the party crowd, while
Robertson Quay appeals to the leisurely wanderer.
Weekends at Robertson Quay and Martin Road also give a
peek into the lives of expats in Singapore, as the

Yes, You can board the Cruise on Clarke Quay Pier. Tickets are available there but i am not sure about Dinner Cruise. However eating/dining on the Quay itself is a very good option.
