About this event

Cruise along our terminals, islands, and understand the types of vessels found in port waters of Singapore. We will then make a stop at Raffles Lighthouse to catch a rare sneak-peek into the workings of one of the oldest Lighthouses in Singapore.

Tour Synopsis

This Raffles Lighthouse Tour brings participants on a ferry, starting from Marina South Pier, passing by southern islands such as St John’s Island, Kusu Island, Pulau Bukom, Pulau Sebarok and Pulau Semakau before disembarking at Pulau Satumu to visit the Raffles Lighthouse.

Raffles Lighthouse, built in 1855, has more than 167 years of heritage behind it. It is currently still in use and is the second oldest among the five lighthouses maintained by the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore. Located along the Strait of Singapore, it marks the southern-most and turning point to guide ships in their navigation.

Participants will also be able to climb 88 steps up to the 29 metres-tall lighthouse for a panoramic view of the vast open sea and visit the museum to learn more about the history of lighthouse’s operations.

*Participants have to be at least 18 years old, and fully vaccinated, to participate in the guided tour.
