Add a Point to the Map

The sister to the popular DUCK Tours, Hippo Tours are hybrid solar-electric-powered modern boats cruising down the Singapore River. The boats are partly-covered and partly open-topped. Walking around is permitted and it provides a more human experience with the added bonus of a live commentary by a guide.

The tours operate on a full day hop-on and hop-off pass system to allow tourists to explore the attractions along the river bank. Boats arrive every 25 minutes and follow the following route: Esplanade -  Singapore Flyer - Merlion Park - Victoria Theatre and Memorial Hall - Asian Civilisations Museum - Raffles Landing Site - Parliament House - Clarke Quay - Boat Quay - Fullerton Hotel. Boarding points are at Clarke Quay and Esplanade.

Doubling as a tourist transportation mode, the Hippo River Pass transports you down the Singapore River and offers a stunning cruise through the night. Priced at $23 and $13 for adults and children respectively, the pass lasts for 24 hours.

The tour operates from 10am to 10pm daily, with the last boat leaving at 9.30pm. You can buy a ticket online and collect at the Hippo River Kiosks at Clarke Quay or Esplanade, or at their counters at Orchard, Suntec Galleria or the Singapore Flyer.
