An excellent experience on the doorstep of Singapore's hustle and bustle but makes for a chilled and relaxing contrast. Our guide, Ben, was knowledgeable, friendly and kept us safe throughout our kayak journey past the busy fish farms and subsequent exploration of the much more tranquil mangroves. Well worth it and would repeat on subsequent visits to Singapore

This was the second time I’ve done this trip with Asian Detours and it was EVEN BETTER this time! Our guide John was super knowledgeable and was paddling around finding all kinds of crabs and stuff for us to see. He even scooped up a jelly fish!!! Such a cool experience.

Benet was a friendly guide. He was able to handle hiccups very well. He was adaptive to his participants' wants. Overall a good experience.

What is advertised in the experience is from 9am to 2pm and the instructions also stated to come 15 mins early; turns out we had to wait for the late comers and started the briefing 15 mins late instead. Tour guide while pleasant, did not share much unless asked during the trip. Rather reserved for a tour guide. However, I think the most disappointing is the trip ended around 12 noon instead of 2pm. Felt like was abit short changed for what I paid for? Also, the area around Ubin is so filled with trash??? Out of disgust of the world around us, we ended up spending the whole kayaking trip picking as much trash as we could from the ocean (not blaming seek sophie here on this). But maybe the tour should be marketed as such rather than a unique trip: Pay $150 with a friend to rent a double kayak for 2 hours to pick out trash from the ocean and make the world a better place.

Dear Grace,

Thanks for bringing this to our attention. It is regretful about the experience you had with the Round Ketam Kayaking program on 5th Nov 2022 (Sat). 

Our team started an inquiry to investigate the matter the moment we received your feedback. We have looked into an overall understanding of the matter; we have since spoken with the kayaking leader, checked through the tide schedule to ascertain the conditions for that day as well, etc.

Below are our observations from the inquiry :
1. We acknowledge an a "less than ideal" decision by our adventure leader to head back earlier, in order to catch the tide/current as she assessed some of the paxs were very tired and would be difficult to paddle back if they were going against the current. As such, the trip back was sooner than expected which was not as per our program norms or practices.
2. We share the same pre-programme deck with all participants. Though we always remind our clients to make it a point to arrive 15mins earlier so as to buffer late comers, if any.
3. Our Oceans are filled with trash. As "Green Stewards" we not only advocate responsibility to our environment and often work with organisations such as WWF, for beach clean ups activities in the mangroves. It is good that you witness the uncensored version of what goes on and glad you took effort in helping to remove some thrash from our oceans.

We appreciate you making us aware of your experience and our team has taken in this feedback and updated our workflow to ensure that this won’t happen again. 

We have reached out to you separately for the service recovery.

Hi, is there any shower and locker facility? How long will it take to reach the meeting point from changi ferry terminal?
Hi, only toilet/shower facility available. You may take the bumboats which operate non-stop so you don't need to wait very long for one. We would advise being at Changi jetty about 25-30 mins before the meeting time at Pulau Ubin (allowing 10-15 mins max for waiting time, 10 mins for the bumboat ride)
