Take A River Cruise In A Bumboat With Kids In Singapore

Singapore River Cruise

Calling all mini city pirates…bring along your binoculars and explore the city on a bumboat!  While many might claim these excursions too touristy, the kids love them, every time! Whether it is a mid-week break or weekend family excursion, a Singapore River Cruise is a fun way to soak in the sights of the city while enjoying some together time in the fresh air!

This 40-minute ride on an updated, quiet, and environmentally-friendly electric Bumboat will take you and your kiddo under bridges and through the Quays, giving you amazing views of Marina Bay Sands, The Merlion, and other famous Singapore landmarks. Life jackets are available for everyone, and after the cruise you’ll have plenty of restaurant choices to grab a bite to eat along the river. Fun!

We suggest you book in advance, especially on the weekends!
