Eligibility to Redeem SingapoRediscovers Vouchers:

Only tours conducted by Yachtly is eligible for SingapoRediscovers Vouchers redemption of up to $100 per guest. Private yacht rentals and yacht charters are not eligible as they do not fulfil the criteria set by the Singapore Tourism Board.

Departure and Arrival Schedules:

Yacht tours depart and return based on a fixed schedule, which cannot be customised. Typically, a 5-hours yacht tour starts from 10 am to 3 pm or 4 pm to 9 pm. A 4-hours yacht tour would start from 9 am to 1 pm, from 1.30 pm to 5. 30 pm, or from 6 pm to 10 pm. We also have a 2-hours yacht tour that starts from 4 pm to 6 pm and from 6.30 pm to 8.30 pm.  

If schedule flexibility is what you are looking for, then private yacht rentals are the way to go.

Number of People On Board:

Yacht tours can host up to 35 guests onboard, while yacht rentals and yacht charters can only host up to 8 guests.

That said, tours have a minimum to go of 8 – which means if you are 2 people, you can redeem up to $200 but need to either wait for 6 guests to join you, or you need to snap up the remaining slots – which will still be cheaper than private chartering a yacht. Secret tip – contact us if you have 8 guests confirmed but like to reduce the likelihood of someone joining. We will try to facilitate.

Yacht Tours Itinerary:

Yacht tours have a pre-planned itinerary to bring the best of Singapore’s coastal stories to you. The route is also supported by audio commentary to bring an immersive experience! We will get to visit landmarks such as Tanjong Pagar Terminal, Marina Bay Sands, Lazarus Island, Sisters’ etc. Notably, water activities are also included for 5-hours and 4-hours yacht tour. Yacht rentals would typically allow flexibility and spend more time at Lazarus Island.
