For team bonding eventsThe maximum capacity is 20 pax, with subgroups of 10 pax.If you book for more than 10 pax and you are not participating in a team bonding event, your booking will be canceled. This is a 4 hour private kayaking trip to the Pulau Ubin Mangroves, with a short viewpoint hike and a chance to see local kelongs. Suitable for children from 4+, and is pet-friendly too (so long as your pet can fit in the kayak)! Option DetailsSpecially designed for all adventure seekers, this private kayaking trip is the perfect introduction to the Pulau Ubin mangroves! In this beginner-friendly kayaking trip, you and your group of besties will cover 4-5 km under the guidance of an experienced instructor. On the way back, you will also stop by a local Kelong and get to buy fresh fish if you like!Please Note: SerendipET provides open double kayaks, and has a limited number of single kayaks which are used only in the event there is an odd number of participants. Due to the nature of this activity, it's almost 100% chance you will get wet (including your trousers and shoes!). Please wear clothing that you don't mind getting wet. Child-FriendlyThis experience is suitable for children from the age of 4 and up, provided they know how to swim. Child life jackets will be provided. Pet-Friendly You can bring your pets on the kayak with you. Please do let us know when you book if you intend to bring your pet. Depending on the size of your pet (ie whether you’re ok squeezing with it on a kayak), you can have two dogs on a two person kayak. We have had customers bring their dog around 20kg on the kayak before - the general rule of thumb is that if you don’t mind squeezing with your dog on the kayak, it’s ok with SerendipET. Note: when bringing your pet across from Changi Ferry Terminal to Pulau Ubin Jetty, you must have your pet in a carrier while onboard the bumboat. Otherwise, you may be denied permission to enter or be required to charter the entire bumboat rather than pay the usual per person fee.Frequently Asked QuestionsAre there crocodiles in the mangroves?There are usually no crocodiles towards the eastern side of Singapore, especially due to the high amount of traffic along the channel you will be at. Crocodiles spotted tend to be at the northern side of Singapore like Sungei Buloh as there is far less traffic in the water and the water is usually empty from human activities too.What time we should take the ferry from Changi Point Ferry Terminal so that we are on time to arrive at Pulau Ubin Entrance Jetty at 8.30 am?The bumboats 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)

A splendid experience! Eugene has been quite a tour guide, sharing bits and pieces of Pulau Ubin, Kelong, and the wildlife while making small jokes to crack us up. You can totally see his passion in kayaking, nature and.. dogs. It was a pleasure to be with the team, together with Gurpreet. Fun fun lovely lovely.

Comfortable kayaking experience with Zac. We were a cosy group, only 5 kayakers. Zac was knowledge about the sights we saw, and even told us we can buy fish from a nearby kelong. I bought one, it was huge, super value for money, and super duper fresh, tastes good! He even took good quality photos for us and sent it to us afterwards. It was overall a pleasant experience. Note: It might say "mangrove kayaking" but it doesn't stink at all. Just make sure you hydrate, apply sunblock regularly (wear a hat, it helps), also good to have a waterproof bag for your phone (but you honestly won't need it) and you're good.

Q
We are a group of 6 interested in the private Mangrove Kayaking on 2 Apr (Fri). May I understand what the tide will be like? I heard that the Mangrove Kayaking experience is dependent on the tide and right now we are towards the end of the season. Can you advise what the experience would be like (ie. limited rivers/trails due to low ride, etc.)? Look forward to your response. Cheers, Sharon

Hi Sharon, Thank you for your questions, The tides change every day, and for the 2nd of April will be rising from 8.30 am. Which would be around the time to start the expedition. This means that as you are entering the mangroves, the current will be going inwards towards the island. And as you are heading out, the current may be going against you. However, this wouldn’t affect the kayak activity as the currents in the mangroves are very minimal due to how the mangroves are structured. You can expect things to get a little bit muddy on the way up to Puaka Hill. Rest assured, the kayaking experience will not be affected at all
