Explore Singapore's Hidden Marine World

This is for the wildlife loving kids in your life. Spot hermit crabs, starfishes, sea cucumbers, and other interesting (and weird!) marine animals along Singapore's Changi coast! The experienced guides will help you and your kids spot as much marine life as possible, while sharing their vast knowledge on marine ecology!

Try Out Kayak Fishing

If you're lucky you may also catch a glimpse of a hawksbill sea turtle along the way! No experience of either fishing or kayaking is needed, but note that this is paced like a light morning jog.

Suitable for kids aged 7+


Graffiti with the Family!

This is super fun for the whole family. It's a quick 1-hour activity where you and your kids will get to vandalise (legally 😜) in Singapore! Don’t worry about getting dirty because protective gears are provided! Just grab your cans and spray away to your heart’s content!
