As part of the southern islands expendition, I am organising a trip to Sisters Island. Prior to that, we had already conquered Pulau Hantu and St John Island.
Date : 1 September, Saturday
Time : 0900 hrs
Venue : Marina South Pier
For those who are driving, you can go straight to the pier to meet us. For those who are taking MRT, alight at Marina MRT and then take bus no. 402 to the pier.
Cost : $13.50 (provided we have 12 persons going). Cost of chartering the boat is $160 for return trip. Hence, we need at least 12 persons to share the cost of chartering the boat
To make full use of our time/cost to the island, it is recommended to spend the whole day there. We shall leave the island at 5pm. Therefore, kindly scehdule your appointments to night time should you have any.
Things to bring :
1) 1.25 litres of water (at least)
2) dry rations (you can't buy food in the island)
3) Tripod and all your gear
4) Sunglass / Sun Block lotion
5) Insect Repellant
What do we shoot at Sisters Island?
Sisters Island is made up of 2 tranquil islands called Subar Laut and Subar Darat.
Big Sister island (Subar Laut) faces the open sea while Little Sister island (Subar Darat) faces the mainland. The 2 islands are separated by a narrow but deep channel. Currents through this channel can be very dangerous. Therefore it is not possible to swim from one island to the other unlike Pulau Hantu.
Sisters Island has rich coral reef and home to some Long-tailed macaques.
Scenic, Birding and Macro photography shall dominate.
Come and join us for a nature walk, and photography.
