Singapore is a small island city-state that boasts a tropical climate and a rich culture. It is a popular destination for tourists seeking sun, sand, and sea, and as such, water activities are a key part of the country’s tourism industry. From swimming in the warm waters of the South China Sea to jet-skiing around the picturesque Sentosa Island, there is no shortage of water-related activities in Singapore.
One particular type of water activity that is especially popular in Singapore is water toys. These toys, which are often inflatable, provide hours of fun for both kids and adults alike. Whether you’re lounging on a giant inflatable swan, battling it out with water guns, or zooming down a water slide, water toys offer a unique and exciting way to enjoy the water.
In this blog post, we’ll take a closer look at the different types of water toys available in Singapore, where to find them, and safety considerations to keep in mind. We’ll also highlight some of the most popular water toys that you can find in Singapore and provide tips on how to make the most of your water toy experience. So, let’s dive in and explore the world of water toys in Singapore, which our yachts also provide for our boating guests.
The water mat is the most common water toy in Singapore. It measures . The favourite factor of this toy is its ability to float on the sea surface. Guests jumping into the water can float onto it, lie down momentarily to gaze at the sky, the clouds and the sun (with sunglasses on). Some yacht guests would even enjoy with beer cans on their hands.
Valencia Yacht has never failed to provide this water mat play as a complimentary water toy during our yacht chartering trips. As you can see below clip from Tik Tok, our guests certainly have fun playing on the water mat. It took place at Lazarus Island. It was one of the most common sea activities during island hopping trips we do too.

Stand Up Paddle Board
Many yachts offer the stand-up paddle board as one of the water toys. During yacht charters, water sports loving guests also love to try on this paddle board to test their balancing skills. Alternatively, they can also sit down on the paddle board and row the boat calmly. Think of this like half a kayak as the paddle does not have 2 sides. And only 1 person at a time is onboard.
Valencia Yacht offers stand-up paddle board as part of our complimentary water toy during our yacht charter. It is a very sought after sea sport well loved by our guests. This paddle board done even within only 10 minutes during yacht charter will certainly give the guests a good chartering experience.
Another water toy in Singapore worth considering is the water slide. This inflatable prop is a popular play tool, especially among children. If you have a family and are bringing young kids onboard, you can consider the water slide as part of the charter. Your kids who love swimming in the sea would certainly enjoy the slide very much as this brings the thrilling adventure to them as they slide down from a higher level into the sea.
Our yacht does provide water slide to our guests during their yacht rentals. Although it is not complimentary for our guests, they are certainly affordable at only $50 extra for a short thrill of fun for the children. On some occasions, young ladies with much love of fun also do try out the water slide too.
Kayaking is a low-impact, eco-friendly activity that is suitable for all ages and skill levels. It’s a great way to get some exercise while enjoying the beautiful surroundings and spotting marine life such as dolphins and turtles. Whether you’re a seasoned kayaker or a beginner, there are plenty of opportunities to paddle around Singapore’s islands, mangroves, and hidden bays.
A popular kayaking spot is the Southern Islands, a cluster of eight islands located off the southern coast of Singapore. Here, you can explore the turquoise waters and hidden beaches of St. John’s Island, Lazarus Island, and Kusu Island, which are all just a short paddle away from each other.
When kayaking in Singapore, it’s important to follow safety guidelines and wear appropriate gear, such as a life jacket and sun protection. It’s also a good idea to check the weather forecast and tides before heading out to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.
In conclusion, kayaking is a wonderful way to explore the waters of Singapore and enjoy the beautiful scenery. Valencia yacht charters in Singapore also offer complimentary kayaks for guests to try out this exciting water activity and make the most of their time on the water.
There are safety tips to consider and our yacht captain and crew will certainly brief you about the water toys use before you start using them. It is of their utmost responsibility to ensure that you abide by the rules. For example, as aforementioned, wearing a life jacket when doing the kayaking is definitely a must water activity. The yacht captain is also trained in some rescue situations as they are PPCDL certified. Also, under rainy weather, some yacht charters may not be possible and definitely, playing of water toys will not be permitted.
The water toys onboard our yacht charters are certainly not limited to the above – water mat, stand-up paddle board, water slide and kayak. Additionally, you can also have a water gun to add in the water splashing fun, just like the Super Soaker gun. Or even just a simple water pistol to splash water like it’s Songkran in Thailand will do.
Valencia Yachts offer complimentary toys during all our yacht charter trips. It would certainly be fun outdoor sea experience playing with them. Contact us now to find out more.
