    Yes guys u need a guide to go n walk2 along e beach during super low tide.

    Ur fren was lucky but if u wanna try ur luck by all means. Cuz e rangers fm NP will actually chase u away. They have small tour groups so they can recognized almost everyone in their grp.

    So my suggestion is go for e NP tour. Meanwhile u can walk2 along e broadwalk, not too bad at low tide but do bring a long lens else u cant take much foto.

    since 12 of u going... maybe u all want to split to groups of 3... then take turns, think it should not be bad.

    Hi Dan,

    Thanks for the advice! You are not coming yourself?

    Before you all go there, do find out this few items first:

    1) You will need extra transport(Ubin Taxi) from the jetty to Chek Jawa beach...it is quite a distance away.

    2) Select those dates which is the lowest tide... at least you can see insect on the beaches... if not high tide-see water.

    3) Select the timing which is not so hot...

    4) Protection...

    Sorry ah, but organiser also first time to Chek Jawa!

    If all are keen to wait for low tide (abt 3pm+) then I suppose we can walk around P.Ubin in the morning and proceed to the quarry for some shoot.

    * Wear light, breathable clothing.
    * Wear appropriate footwear
    * Bring Cap / Umbrella / Ponchos
    * Bring enough drinking water / Snack etc...

    There are "taxis" available on the island besides cycling. These "taxis" are vans which can take up to 12 passengers. Can check the rates there and then for bookings.

    Hi Guys,

    U can go to the boardwalk anytime but not the intertidal area. The Intertidal area is resisted and must be guided by NPark's guides. The guided tour are organised only by NPark and is chargeable.

    Reason for not opening to public is to minimise the impact on the biodiversity in the area and prevent any mishaps since there are known cases of stonefish and stingray in the area.

    Visit their website for more info.

    Hi Guys


    You may want to refer to the tide time on 4 July

    http://app.nea.gov.sg/cms/htdocs/article.asp?pid=2293

    From the table, I think you all will "See Water" than shotting insect.
    At 3pm, the lowest tide is 1.5m.

    Prefer you all visit the quary..


    Sorry, not to discourage you all.. the tide is not so suitable to shot in Chek Jawa on this day if you all wanted to shot insect... for others should be fine.
