We have curated 3 levels of family kayaking adventures. They are designed to scaffold an experience in terms of the level of physical activity, distance as well as the duration of the program. Families are encouraged to start with Level 1 and then progressively journey through Levels 2 and 3. Level 3 Ubin Bisect Expedition brings participants traversing through the mangroves as well as a portage experience.

There is a variety of biking routes in Pulau Ubin which ranges from easy paths to off-road trails. They will bring us to different parts of the island and it gives us the opportunity to discover some of the key landmarks on Pulau Ubin. 

Similarly, we have curated 2 Levels of the Biking Adventures. For those who are new to biking as a family, we recommend that you start off with the Level 1, Family Biking Discovery. And you can always come back for more adventure with the Bike Trail Adventure where you get to explore the rest of the island.

"It was great that it wasn't just about the kayaking, but learning about the mangrove swamp, and being able to go up close to nature was key to the overall experience. A meaningful and fun activity, well facilitated and organised!"



"A great afternoon kayaking around Pulau Ubin arranged by Mindful Space.

As always, everything was very well organised and communicated very clearly in advance of the trip.


Our guide was knowledgeable about the flora and fauna we saw, as well as being very patient with our kids! :)


Thank you to the Mindful Space team!"

"For many parents who maybe apprehensive, as I was, about whether it would be challenging having another young child in tandem kayaking.


I would reassure them that it’s in fact super fun and very manageable with little or no experience. The instructors are extremely engaging and helpful, and will easily set your mind at ease."

"The highlight was definitely the wonderful experience of just kayaking together and appreciating nature with my son.

Weather Considerations

What happens in the event of bad weather?

Our programs are designed to operate in both dry and wet weather. In the event of bad weather, we will work with our participants for postponement. Bad weather is defined as: 1) poor visibility (reduced to less than 1 km; cannot see Singapore from Pulau Ubin), 2) lightning is local (our mobile lightning detectors indicate 0 – 5 miles), 3) wind is too strong (Beaufort 5; 16-20 knots; Fresh Breeze; Many whitecaps, small amounts of spray). However, the likelihood of bad weather is low, and occasions where programs did not proceed were few and far in between. Our leaders will make the decision for postponement when bad weather persists for more than 1 hour from scheduled start time of program. Participants not present will be treated as no show, and penalty charge is 100 percent of the program fees.
