ROUND KETAM KAYAKING
Experience an open sea kayaking journey with an up close view of the mangrove habitat and be rewarded with natural sightings of flora and fauna surrounding Pulau Ketam, an island just off the southwest of Pulau Ubin.
Starting from the southern end of Pulau Ubin, hugging the coast and traveling westward, heading to the highlight of the tour, Ketam Island. As we come close to it, we will pass by the popular grey herons in their calm and resting state, experience the serenity of paddling at sea and enjoy the winds that brings us forward.
Midway through the island, we get to view the mangroves that connect the 2 parts of Ketam Island together. It is here that we get to see different mangroves and their characteristics. Our friendly adventure leaders will be able to point these areas out to you along the way! You might even spot the occasional water monitor lizards chilling out or otters swimming by.
No prerequisites required for this adventure, and this is truly the ideal challenge for those looking to push their physical boundaries. Not to worry though, our experienced leaders are here to help you and will tailor the speed of the journey according to your limits. This is also an ideal adventure for families and groups with children.
