Two new programmes are being introduced at the Marina Bay Sands sampan rides: the Eye of the Waterfall Tour and the Sampan Musical Voyage.
Eye of the Waterfall Tour at Marina Bay Sands
The Eye of the Waterfall Tour allows visitors to get a close-up view of Marina Bay Sand’s Rain Oculus.
Visitors in the sampan will be able to marvel as the water cascades from a skylight two storeys overhead.

This new sampan guided tour offers insight into the design and sustainability features of the Rain Oculus, demonstrating how sustainability features have been seamlessly integrated into the architecture and art of the integrated resort.
The Eye of the Waterfall Tour is available every Tuesday at 5 pm. It is priced at $18, inclusive of booking fees and GST.
Sampan Musical Voyage
The second sampan-based programme is the Sampan Musical Voyage. This was launched as part of Marina Bay Sand’s inaugural Music Festival – Where Music Takes Over.
Visitors will be able to embark on a leisurely ride while being serenaded by talented Sampan singers, taking them on a musical voyage down the Canal at The Shoppes.
In addition, from 15 July to 2 August, visitors are invited to learn to play simple percussive instruments and sing along to a song specially composed to pay homage to the Sampan boats’ role in Singapore’s rich history and culture.
The song, “Little Boat of Dreams”, was co-written by local music producer and filmmaker Eric Wong, together with pop band Scarlet Avenue’s Amos Ang. Wong also worked with local musician and composer Syafiqah Adha to arrange the soundtrack.
The Sampan Musical Voyage is available every Thursday to Saturday, at 2 pm and 6 pm. It is priced at $25, inclusive of booking fees and GST.
