Weather Considerations

What happens in the event of bad weather?


Our programs are designed to operate in both dry and wet weather. In the event of bad weather, we will work with our participants for postponement. Bad weather is defined as 1) poor visibility (reduced to less than 1 km; cannot see Singapore from Pulau Ubin), 2) lightning is local (our mobile lightning detectors indicate 0 – 5 miles), 3) wind is too strong(Beaufort 5; 16-20 knots; Fresh Breeze; Many whitecaps, small amounts of spray). However, the likelihood of bad weather is low, and occasions where programs did not proceed were few and far in between. Our leaders will make the decision for postponement when bad weather persists for more than 1 hour from scheduled start time of program. Participants not present will be treated as no show, and penalty charge is 100 percent of the program fees.




What happens in the event of haze?


Safety in any program is paramount to Asian Detours and we ensure adherence to our best practices in all our programs. We have set in place a HAZE MANAGEMENT PLAN to ensure the well being of all participants in our Pulau Ubin programs during a haze situation. We are ready to respond and take appropriate haze management measures based on the Ministry of Health’s Health Advisorycorresponding to air quality (www.haze.gov.sg)
