As a follow-up to the review on Sister's Islands camping, note that the system for camping on Pulau Hantu is by a monthly quota which makes it very difficult to book just prior to the weekend. I tried for the 2nd weekend of a month and the quota had been used! Lesson: book as early as possible and at least... More

In the little island of Singapore there are in fact some interesting dive sites you may find it worth trying, diving in Singapore requires certain buoyancy control as the visibility is rather challenging. At best so far it is only 10m and 1 - 2m on a bad day, nevertheless it is full of treasures if one is to look... More

One of several well known dive sites in Singapore. Despite the poor visibility, there are critters galore if one spends the time to look for them.

Pulau Hantu remains the best option when you absolutely have to get underwater and you don't have a lot of spare time. Regular trips leave from the RSYC in Clementi on weekends. I've been a few times this year with vis ranging between 50cm and 3m. Not too much to see but you do get the odd sight of interest.

Singapore may be amidst the famous Coral Triangle but she is not herself a dive destination. In fact, on most weekends, most Singaporeans either flock north to Peninsula Malaysia or South to Batam and Bintan to dive. Ask Singaporean divers if they have dived Singapore waters and you are likely to hear them remark that there is no point diving... More

Was there with a couple of friends and family in June 2015. First time there and I really don't think I have a lot of things to say about the island (Some might think this is exactly the point of an idyllic island). Herewith in point form: - the boat ride from West Coast Pier is a little of 2... More

I've dived at Pulau Hantu maybe 10 times in total. Visibility typically ranges from zero up to a best ever of about 5m, but is usually in the 2m-3m range. As such it's recommended to dive with a torch. On the worst day I couldn't even read my dive computer whilst shining my torch on it! But hey, it's good... More

I've heard much of diving in Pulau Hantu & the comments I gotten was "Aye bro, don't waste your time its like diving in chocolate milky water". It's until last weekend that I was invited to make a day trip dive there with a local dive center that change my mind, it's actually an interesting dive site with surprisingly growing... More
