Highlights

Step back in time and relive Singapore's colonial era on a journey along the iconic Singapore River with Singapore River Cruise. Delve into the city's rich history and witness the seamless blend of heritage and modernity during this 40-minute ride aboard a historic bumboat.

Once bustling with commerce, the Singapore River was the lifeline of trade, with godowns lining the quays and traditional bumboats ferrying goods along the Rochor, Kallang, and Singapore rivers from the 19th to the 20th century. Singapore River Cruise has been preserving this historical facet since 1987, offering a unique perspective on modern Singapore from the decks of these traditional wooden boats.

As you cruise through the picturesque districts of Clarke Quay, Boat Quay, and Marina Bay, the onboard commentary unveils the tales of the Raffles Landing site and narrates the fascinating history of the river that breathed life into the city. Marvel at the futuristic architecture of Marina Bay Sands, adding a touch of modern splendor to this immersive journey through time.
Take a relaxing cruise down Singapore River on an iconic traditional bumboat.
Discover the stories of river life on one of the city's main arteries.
Hop off at any time, or remain on the boat and complete the entire journey.
Disembark at Clarke Quay, Read Bridge, Boat Quay, Fullerton, Merlion Park, or Esplanade.
