A Singapore River Cruise is a breathtaking way to see the sights aboard a comfortable bumboat as you cruise along the famous heritage river and Marina Bay.
Because it’s one of the most enjoyable activities in the city, it’s no surprise that the cruise is not only popular among tourists but also locals.

The bumboats used were once the primary transportation method for transporting cargo during the early days of Singapore. With the river cruises, you can now experience what it’s like to ride on these historic boats, which originated from Europe in the 1600s.
Some of the highlights you’ll see aboard the cruise include the Raffles Landing Site, Merlion, Singapore Flyer, Boat Quay, Marina Bay, and Clarke Quay. Day and night boat tours are available.
Daytime tours are ideal if you’d like to unwind with the breeze in your hair. On the other hand, night tours are romantic and rejuvenating; a great choice especially if Singapore weather is extremely hot during the day. Both options provide you with live commentary.
If you’re in Singapore during the Spectra at Marina Bay Sands at night, choosing a river cruise around this time is highly recommended. The Singapore River Cruise costs $25 for adults and $15 for children. Tours depart at 9am through 11pm daily, with the last boat leaving at 10:30pm.
