Tour Synopsis

This sea tour brings participants on a ferry, starting from Marina South Pier, passing by the southern offshore islands such as Pulau Bukom, Pulau Sebarok and Pulau Semakau, and past the southernmost light house, the Raffles Lighthouse.

Raffles Lighthouse, built in 1885, is the second oldest of Singapore’s five lighthouses still in use. It marks a significant spot where ships make a turn along the busy shipping route in the Singapore Strait.
