Bring your own - Meals - Sun and rain protection (hats, sunscreen, rain coat etc) - Snacks and additional drinks, BYO-alcohol is ok, we do not charge corkage - Fishing equipment if you would like to use your own. Please only bring the fishing setup that we recommend.




Do you provide fishing gear?


Yes, we provide fishing gear. Please handle the fishing gear with care. We charge $200 if you were to drop the fishing rod and reel into the sea.

What if it rains?


If we see dark clouds we will avoid the area. Light rain is ok to fish. If we get caught in a thunderstorm, these are usually passing and we will pause the fishing till it passes. There's a sheltered cabin in the boat, do bring a raincoat just in case

Insurance and waiver of liability


We do not provide insurance for our guests, and recommend that you purchase your own insurance that covers deep sea fishing. By booking our charter, you and members of your group joining the trip hereby expressly agree to our Indemnity Agreement and Code of Conduct.




Can I bring my kids? What is the pricing for children?


Children are allowed on board. Pricing for children are the same as adults. Each child must be accompanied by one adult and supervised at all times (1 to 1 adult to child ratio) Each child age 12 and below are required to share a rod with an adult until the captain or crew sees that the child can handle the rod safely by himself




Will I get seasick?


You may get seasick if you are not used to being on boats. We recommend: - Purchase non-drowsy motion sickness pills from the local pharmacy, and take one tablet 20 minutes before the start of the trip and another pill 4 hours into the trip (or as advised by pharmacy) - Do NOT have a heavy / greasy / sugary meal before the trip starts. Have a light meal or snack instead - Onboard, it is better to stay on the deck with the breeze and looking far out, than staying inside the cabin. Face the same direction where the boat is going, rather than sideways or facing the back. It is the discrepency between what you see and expect to feel, versus the actual motion that causes motion sickness




Can I bring my dog?


We love dogs! However for safety reasons, we do not allow pets onboard




Are you open during Covid19? What measures are in place?


We are open! During Phase 2, these measures are in place: + Temperature is taken onboard, all guests have to scan the Safe Entry and fill in the manifest form + Maximum 5 guests allowed, excluding captain and crew + Everyone has to wear masks or neck buffs at all times, except when eating or drinking + Keep 1 meter apart where possible + Boats are washed thoroughly after every trip For more information, please see here: https://www.singaporefishingcharter.com/announcements
