For a fun day out at sea however, rent the 4-hour yacht charter to Lazarus Island, starting from just $699 for 8 pax on weekdays and $899 for 8pax on weekends.
Don’t want to spend half a day on the water? That’s totally fine too! YachtCruiseSG offers everything from exclusive 1hr cruises to 4hr voyages. For instance, the 1hr City Skyline Cruise ($60 per person) sets sail from Sentosa 6pm Thursday-Sunday evenings, and leisurely glides past Marina Bay, Lazarus, St John’s and Sisters Islands, from dusk till evening, inclusive of a mocktail.
You won’t be chartering the entire yacht, but it doesn’t get more affordable than this if you want to start your date off on a romantic note, or visit the city highlights with friends and family in a different way.
Technically not renting out the whole yacht here, but we had to include this in our round up for an affordable and fun yacht party experience. Hop aboard Singapore’s largest yacht and Asia’s only tall ship, the Royal Albatross, easily one of Singapore’s top sailing attractions.
Choose from a variety of dining packages, such as the 2.5hr Weekend Sunset (from $225++/adult and $125++/child, including a 4-course dinner for adults and kids dinner for children) or Weekday City Lights Cruise with fireworks (from $225++/adult and $125++/child, including buffet and freeflow drinks).
For the former, guests can choose to upgrade their voyage with wine and whisky pairings with their 4-course dinner, or even up to a 7-course dinner (starting from $60++).
Did you know that the Royal Albatross is also one of the very few yachts that offers a cruise for your fur-kid? The 2-hr weekend Dog-Friendly Breakfast Cruise sets sail at 9am on selected Saturdays, inclusive of a buffet breakfast for you ($150++/adult & $95++/child) and a 2-course breakfast for your pet (doggy ticket prices from $30).
