Kayaking to Kusu and Lazarus Islands

We went with some friends last Saturday on a KayakAsia led paddle from Sentosa to the Southern Islands. What a beautiful morning to set off!

The currents were mild on the way over, and we enjoyed blue skies and clear waters. The tides were really low when we got to Kusu Island though, such that we had to carry our kayaks midway into the lagoon – no soaking in the cool emerald green waters in the inner lagoon this time for us.

After a bit of a morning tea where we enjoyed fresh curry puffs, homemade four berry tarts, tangerines and coffee, we clambered back into our inflatable kayaks to cross over to Lazarus Island.

There, we poked around the tidal pools, admiring the sea anemones, nudibranches, and moon jellyfish.

All too soon, it was time to make the slog back. I suppose it was too much to ask for mild currents again! My right arm was tired by the time we made it back to shore, having to pull against the currents the entire trip back. At least I earned those beers after!

    1. Hello, it’s not a far distance. Less than 5 km. But, unless you’re experienced, I definitely do not recommend going on your own. The currents there can be really scarily strong. I’ve paddled in sea kayaks before and have had my heart in my throat half the time. At least with the Kayak Asia tour, you’d be in super stable inflatable boats and experienced guides. ☺️ Hope that helps!
