While international travel might not be possible now, there are other ways we can recreate the feeling of a relaxing getaway. Unwind with a relaxing sunset sail, where you’ll discover the beauty and secrets of Singapore’s Southern Straits. If you’re looking to spice up your weekend dinner plans, look no further than this two-hour getaway. So, what can you expect on the sunset sail? Read on to find out!
Enjoy delicious food and drinks on board
As you take in the sea breeze, you’ll be served a delectable spread that’s sure to delight. Sip on a welcome drink (with a choice of gin, vodka, whisky or beer) to start off the night before the first course is served. Dig into a flavourful Pomodoro Penne Pasta cooked to perfection, followed by a light Jumbo Satay. Then, you’ll be treated to a juicy chicken chop and an “Impossible” vegan slider burger! If you’d like an extra drink or two, bring some extra money as the on-board bar only accepts cash payment.
Hear the stories of Singapore’s Southern Islands
Did you know that the Southern Islands were once home to the native Malay islanders and sea nomads? Be regaled with tales of legend and forgotten stories lost to time. From Kusu Island to St. John’s Island, each has its own unique story. Why not check out the Southern Islands as well with our handy guide? This is also Singapore’s first guided sea tour of the Southern Islands, so you’re in for a treat!
Watch a beautiful sunset
Get a front row seat to one of Singapore’s 365 sunsets as the boat cruises down the tranquil sea. You’ll have a view of the sunset like no other, and take memorable photos as the sun goes down! After dark, enjoy the view of the city lights as Singapore’s night scene comes to life. It’ll look great on your social feeds as well!
Unwind in the company of your friends and family
Decked out in aesthetic fairy lights, the ship is the perfect place to get to know your friends better! Share an experience like no other with the people you love as you’re taken on a nautical adventure through the Southern Straits. Each group will have their own area to themselves, so you don’t have to worry about privacy. The open-decked ship has plenty of areas to hang out in and take in the sea breeze.
Tips for a pleasant sail
As the sail is a rain-or-shine event, don’t forget to bring an umbrella in case you get caught in a downpour! It can get pretty hot too, and you can bring your own water bottle on the sunset sail. No outside food and drinks are allowed, so make sure you come with an empty stomach as there will be plenty of food to go around!
Due to limited space, if your group has less than eight people, you’ll be paired up with others to form a full group. Which is also a great way to meet new people, if you’re worried about being alone on the sail! The sail is approximately three hours long, and the boat will return to Marina South Pier at the end of the trip.
There’s plenty to do in Singapore even with the pandemic, and this Sunset Sail promises an experience like no other. Discover the Southern Islands in a new light, and take an evening off to rest and recharge while sailing into the sunset!
