Don’t Miss the Boat to Singapore’s First Marine Park

Singapore's new Marine Park will let you get up close with the diverse marine life on our islands. If you are a nature lover, don't miss this attraction!

Singapore’s new attraction is proving to be a hit even before it officially opens. The marine park, located offshore on Sisters’ island, will give Singaporeans a chance to experience nature at their doorstep!

The marine park is about the size of 50 football fields, spread across 40 hectares. It will encompass the area around Sisters’ Islands as well as the western reefs of both St John’s Island and Pulau Tekukor. The park will serve as a platform for marine biodiversity conservation efforts, and activities that both engage and educate visitors are planned.

Singapore is home to over 350 species of reef fish and hard corals, such as the five-spot anemone shrimp and long-spined sea urchin.

This marine park is one of the few opportunities for Singaporeans to get up close with the rich marine diversity of Sisters’ Island, Pulau Tekukor and St. John’s Island. Expect to see a variety of habitats, including coral reefs, sandy shores and seagrass areas. The marine park will also have a marine research centre to contribute to conservation efforts. The park will be opened in 2015, and exciting activities including workshops and camps on the island are lined up.

In the meantime, the National Parks Board (NP) has been organising guided walks to introduce locals to the new attraction. The first two trips with 90 places were all snapped up in just three days! NP have responded to the overwhelming response by introducing six more trips to the park. Each tour is limited to 15 people only, so register for your chance to see Singapore’s wildlife up close!
