This year I haven't been fortunate enough to be able to do much diving, and so I really needed to get into the water - Hantu was really the only practical option. But today the vis was particularly bad, just 1 metre. Not that much...More

Came back to Pulau Hantu this weekend for more dives aboard the Dolphin Explorer. It's a good way to spend a Saturday morning. Visibility wasn't too bad at 2-3 metres and there were even a few fish and nudibranchs to see. I'm yet to see...More

One of several well known dive sites in Singapore. Despite the poor visibility, there are critters galore if one spends the time to look for them.

Pulau Hantu remains the best option when you absolutely have to get underwater and you don't have a lot of spare time. Regular trips leave from the RSYC in Clementi on weekends. I've been a few times this year with vis ranging between 50cm and...More

Singapore may be amidst the famous Coral Triangle but she is not herself a dive destination. In fact, on most weekends, most Singaporeans either flock north to Peninsula Malaysia or South to Batam and Bintan to dive. Ask Singaporean divers if they have dived Singapore...More

You can usually arrange these trips through local dive operators. Cost is around $100 SGD for 2 dives if you have your own gear. If you don't have your own gear then you'll need to arrange that with the dive shop. Dolphin... More
