The Kayaking Mangrove Exploration Tour is for everyone regardless of your kayaking ability – there will be a lesson on the basics as well as a safety briefing. (The photo was taken in accordance with safe management measures set by IMDA during film production.) PHOTO: SPH

There are few corners of Singapore inaccessible by foot. One of these is the dense mangrove along the Strait of Johor that can only be reached by kayak. The Kayaking Mangrove Exploration Tour takes visitors from Sembawang Park through the lush mangrove where experienced kayaking guides point out the diverse flora and fauna found in its expanse. 

Don’t know how to kayak? No problem. You’ll get a lesson and safety instructions before strapping on your life vests and heading out on a leisurely hour-long row. 

Once past the mangrove, you’ll come upon a secret cove where the waters are so clear you can see all the little fish in it and pick seashells and clams on the shoreline. Take your time frolicking on this slice of paradise before kayaking back.
