Carnival By The Straits 2023

The mention of “yacht club” is likely to conjure the image of wealthy folks frolicking on their million-dollar vessels, something the average Singaporean wouldn’t be able to experience. Well, the SAF Yacht Club is an activity site that’s much more accessible. And with the return of Carnival By The Straits, you’ll get to spend a day at sea without a Crazy Rich Asians budget.

Here’s what you can expect from the event taking place on Saturday, 10th June 2023 from 10am-5pm.

Water sport rides like jet skis, ski tubes & banana boats for $10 each

If you love getting your splash on and cooling off from the SG heat, the activity line-up at Carnival By The Straits 2023 will be right up your alley. Taking full advantage of the coastal location, there’ll be a spate of water sports for both young and old to take on.

Whichever you choose, it will cost $10 per ride. Options include banana boats, ski tubes, jet skis, and even the rare opportunity to experience a RHIB boat ride.

It stands for Rigid-Hulled Inflatable Boat, and is a high-speed and heavy-duty mode of transport used in the military for actual rescue ops. Hop aboard if you have dreams of joining the navy, or if you just wish to feel the adrenaline rush of embarking on a G.I. Joe-esque crime-fighting mission.

Activities on dry land such as carnival games & archery

The fun doesn’t have to end once you’re back on shore. Activity stations will be set up around the premises, and you can try your hand at carnival games from $2 each or $6 for a go at archery
