Besides bank transfer, is there other modes of payment?
Regrettably, we are only able to accept bank transfer at this point due to reasons listed below.

Cash on Boarding: Is not available due to the risk of 'No-Show' booking. For each booking, there is a great deal of time, cost and effort incurred. Fees including but not limited to Captain fees, Marina fees, Crew fees etc.. are incurred with each booking, even in the instance of a 'No-Show' booking.

Do I need to tip the Boat Captain?
That’s entirely up to you. Our Captain would be grateful for extra tips nonetheless! Tipping is purely voluntary but it is always, always much appreciated.

What is provided on the boat?
Life jackets for humans, life jacket for dogs, life buoys, first aids kit, ice box with ice, wet and dry tissue paper, a complimentary bottled water per guest & trash bag.

What do I need to bring?
Expect lots of fun and the occasionally splashing of water when boating. Below are just some of our suggestions. Swimwear if you intend to swim. For clothing, bring an extra pair if you like to change after the cruise. Do not forget sunglasses or a hat and a high-protection sun cream or sun block. The constant wind on board keeps temperature comfortable, but the combined effect of sun and reflection from sea can cause severe sunburns. You will want to remember your boating experience and be able to share it with others. Bring along a camera and phone (if you need it) keep it in a good strong waterproof bag because it can get wet. Items for fun like playing cards, books etc.. or your own selection of music could always come in handy either during an inter-island passage or in the anchorage. For your maximum comfort and enjoyment, a picnic mat, light folding chairs always comes in handy. We also welcome you to bring along your own meals, snacks, favourite drinks or beer etc. For your pets, bring along leashes, drinking bowls, bottle of drinking water, fetch toys and Pets Treats.

All boarding/ alighting are in Raffles Marina, unless otherwise stated.

Will I be sharing the boat with other guests?
Certainly no. The boat is only available exclusively to you and your guests for the entire duration of booking.

Can I charter the boat for humans only?
Yes certainly. We cater for all occasions and can also provide customised itineraries, including overseas trip to selected destinations such as Batam, Bintan etc.. to suit your needs.

Do we need to buy personal insurance?
