Summertime – and that’s all year round here in Singapore – was never meant for staying indoors.
Fly over the waters overlooking the Sentosa beaches and the ocean beyond; certified instructors will guide you through and perhaps even teach you a flip or a roll.
For the true blue water-loving adrenaline junkie who want more, there’s also stand-up paddle boarding, wakeboarding, and more.

NEXT: Climb up REAL rocks at Singapore’s only natural outdoor climbing terrain →
Have a go at natural rock-climbing at the quarry-turned-nature reserve that is Dairy Farm, the only regularly maintained outdoor climbing area in Singapore.
Both beginners and experienced climbers are welcome – there are clear climbing routes mapped out and there are bolts secured for easy belaying. New to the activity? We suggest joining fellow climbers from the Dairy Farm Climbing Group who’ll be happy to guide you through.

NEXT: Emerge champion racer at The Karting Arena →
F1 season or not, the race is always on at The Karting Arena, which boasts electric-powered karts that pack an electrifying punch with their superior acceleration while being safe even for the little ones.
Post-race, get a race report for bragging rights’ sake.

NEXT: Go treasure-hunting all around Singapore →
For the uninitiated, Geocaching is basically a treasure hunt made by treasure hunters, for treasure hunters. A geocache is a small container hidden in a specific location with a specific GPS coordinate; download the Geocache app and start your hunt. Fill in the logbook and return the geocache to the same spot for the next hunter. It’s a great way to explore the nooks and crannies of Singapore you never knew existed!
NEXT: Have a splashing good time at your neighborhood swimming complex →
There are many water parks and swimming complexes in Singapore – you’ll even find secret ones on rooftops of shopping malls – and quite possibly the most undersold of all is the Jurong West Swimming Complex, which has 3 giant water slides, a wave pool, a lazy river and more.

NEXT: Play a game of soccer… except you’re the ball →
Not the soccer ball, thankfully.
Play soccer while in an inflated zorb – looks cute from the outside, but when you’re actually at it, you’ll realise how hard it is to even keep your balance. But falling and bouncing around is the whole fun of it, anyway!

NEXT: Kayak through a mangrove swamp and experience a different side of Singapore →
Embark on a water expedition with the folks, who’ll show you an amazing part of Singapore only accessible by kayaks. Paddle through the mangroves of Khatib Bongsu or Pulau Ubin, and if you’re lucky, you may even spot a rare wild animal or two.
All are welcome – the folks at KayakAsia say their youngest paddler is 3 years old and their oldest, 78!
