Offering up a range of guided kayaking expeditions that’ll take you through the tranquil waters of Pulau Ubin, Adventures is the perfect way to get back to nature and have a good workout at the same time.
The tours are suitable for children aged 7 years and above, and each programme varies from four to six hours.

Wakeboarding at Singapore Wake Park
Unlike conventional wakeboarding, Singapore Wake Park is the only cable-ski park in Singapore that offers wakeboarding and water skiing in an enclosed body of water. They have two beginner-friendly systems that are suitable for children and new learners, complete with instructors on hand – your kiddos will be skidding and sliding to their heart’s content in no time.

Stand Up Paddling at Aloha Sea Sports
There’s plenty of fun water activities available at the Aloha Sea Sports centre, but Stand Up Paddling (SUP) – where you paddle through the waves while standing on a surfboard – is definitely a go-to sport for kids aged 7 and above. Each class accommodates up to six people so the entire family can join in!

Windsurfing at Constant Wind
A hybrid sport that combines the elements of surfing and sailing, windsurfing is an exhilarating activity that’ll have you hooked from the get-go. Because of the physical demands involved with maneuvering the sail on open water, windsurfing is better suited for older kids (above 10 years of age) who are confident in the water and looking for something more challenging. With that being said, we’d recommend for kids to be accompanied by their parents during each session
