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 the sea horses which many people claim are there.

As a follow-up to the review on Sister's Islands camping, note that the system for camping on Pulau Hantu is by a monthly quota which makes it very difficult to book just prior to the weekend. I tried for the 2nd weekend of a month and the quota had been used!

Lesson: book as early as possible and at least in the previous month. To book, send an email to:

goh_soon_huat@sentosa.com.sg

Although in the past one could get a bum boat from a load of jettys, these have all gone now and I think that the closest is West Coast Ferry Terminal (there is a car park). You'll need passports and don't take too much as it is xrayed. Ring to book a boat/find out the cost.

Otherwise,camping is great so long as it is not over-packed - didn't used to be (used to have the island to ourselves but can't comment now (although they do limit numbers at any one time beside the quota).

Nice that there is a toilet block/shower - his/hers. No lights on the island.

Wild life: we've encountered dolphins, owl, island-hopping monitor lizards. Thankfully no monkeys on there.

In the little island of Singapore there are in fact some interesting dive sites you may find it worth trying, diving in Singapore requires certain buoyancy control as the visibility is rather challenging.
At best so far it is only 10m and 1 - 2m on a bad day, nevertheless it is full of treasures if one is to look close enough, with a strong enough hand held torch you will be able to discover all the wonders within.
Like its small island everything you may find here will be in mini size but many friends and buddies actually find them unique and interesting, long rash guard or full suit are advise as the corals around can be rather scratchy.

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 3m. Not too much to see but you do get the odd sight of interest.
