    I went there for a dinner function last month booked by my boss. He is a member there. The security said no public access beyond the restaurant areas. Must have a member accompany if you are going into the marina section.

    Nice view with the lighthouse and boats.

    You can try to sneak in. but not worth the time and effort if the guards catch and ask you to go home.

    I ask before, for general public, you need to pay a fee to shoot inside their premises.

    alternatively, you can sign up as a club member.

    Raffles Marina is a nice place to shoot sunset, it is possible if you are a member or an invited guest.

    Other possible location to shoot sunset with the sailing boat is Danga Bay, J.B.

    Was there a policy change? I was there about 2 years ago, and I could wander inside even though I'm not a member. The security guards just told me that I wasn't allowed to take pictures of the private boats, and it was ok to take pictures out towards the sea after I walked down the pier. I believe non-members could dine at the bar and restaurant there too.

    My photos - see just some or all of it =)

    I shot at Raffles Marina recently and I'm not a member. That's not to say everyone should just flock there now.

    I think your best bet is to not shoot there unless you think it's absolutely necessary.
