Prawning in Singapore


Nothing beats catching your own seafood, kampung style, and having them cooked fresh on the spot. Prawning is probably one of the chillest pastimes in SG, where you get to socialise with your friends while still engaging in an activity that offers a tasty reward. It’s also a good gateway into the world of fishing, as prawns are smaller and struggle less than their finned counterparts. 

All you need is some bait, patience, and a few deft tugs. If this sounds interesting to you, check out these 8 prawning places in Singapore where you can catch your prawns, and eat them too.


1. Bait N Catch @ Aranda Country Club – From $11/h

Opened in 2022, Bait N Catch is one of the newcomers in the prawning game. Apparently, it’s pretty beginner-friendly, with reviews praising the bite rate here – which means you’ll be getting catches here even if you’re new to this. 

They also provide free-flow chicken heart baits, so you can maximise your loot. For the pros, you’re welcome to bring your own rods and bait too.

Being the largest prawning facility in Singapore and perhaps one of the most well-known, Orto (from $11.80/hour) had a total of 10 ponds filled with big head prawns and yabbies, a type of crayfish. Unfortunately, 25th June 2023 was their last day at the OG Yishun compound. Fret not though as their new location at West Coast, will continue to keep their prawning legacy alive.

You’ll still get to enjoy Thai boat noodles (from $36.80), hotpot style from a new Thai restaurant Kinn Dermwhile the former BKK Bistro has moved to Kallang Mall. Moreover, there’ll also be live music from local bands for you to wine and dine over too.

Moreover, their prawning facility has also been elevated as it’s now located within a restaurant called 88 SGMY Seafood. Visitors can catch their own prawns ($7/500g) and even get to select from their 10 cooking accompaniments, including fan favourites cereal and sambal.

(CLOSED) Aquarium Iwarna – From $10.50/h


Aquarium Iwarna - Prawning

Accessible only by car, Aquarium Iwarna (from $10.50/hour) is pretty off the grid. That said, this also means it’s a lot less crowded – which is ideal for an activity that requires peace of mind and patience.

Google will inform you of what you can find at their aquarium – mostly what’s needed for the setup and maintenance for your home aquarium – but what’s not shared are the ponds they have for fishing and prawning. These are also, for some reason, not listed on their website. There are grills available for you to cook your catch after your session.

Price: 1 hour: $14/pax | 2.5 hours: $28/pax | 4 hours: $42/pax

Address: 70 Pasir Ris Farmway 3, Singapore 518234
Opening hours: 24 hours, Daily

Impress your other half with your skills or set up a friendly match with your squad, all while enjoying some good convo as you wait for the prawns to bite.

But if you’d rather leave all the dirty work to someone else, look to our other guides for a yummy seafood feast:
