what is the departure time from kusu island back to Marina?
Looking at the ferry schedule from the Singapore Island Cruise & Ferry Services website, it’s stated that the “Ferry will bring you from Marina South Pier to St John’s Island and then to Kusu Island before returning to Marina South Pier. Ferry does not go back to St John’s from Kusu Island.”
Unfortuntely there is no pickup time listed for Kusu Island itself, but since the pickup time is 2:45pm for St. John’s Island, i would say just to make sure you are back at the pier any time after that.
It also mentions that a “Ferry will depart from Kusu on a first come first serve basis at intervals of approximately 1 hour”, but i really can’t find any extra information to back this claim up, so i would say just to stick to the official listed timetable.
