*This activity has limited availability due to the height of the tides, we will only be able to walk during spring/very low tide. Intertidal Zone : Area that is above water at low tide and submerged during high tide. We'll start off with a brief introduction on the coastal area that we are at, some basic rules and what we might hopefully spot. There will be a variety of biotopes to pick from seagrass to submerged minor reefs. Having done that, we'll proceed for the intertidal activity which will last approximately 2-3 hours. Do note that we could be walking in ankle deep water (with rubber booties) but I emphasise on safety so this is definitely suitable for all ages! We will be able to appreciate critters and creatures, macro and micro. Depending on the time and tidal conditions, we can see cephalopods, crustaceans, nudibranchs, bivalves, fishes, sea stars, corals and other aquatic lifeforms . This is an interactive social activity and as such, guests have to actively participate together. Sightings and/or animals are not guaranteed. I cannot guarantee seeing all of the above but what I can guarantee is my expertise in this field, enthusiasm and more importantly being a local friend instead of a 'commercial tour guide' so feel free to ask me anything and everything about Singapore!
Helloo, I'm Dennis and a young modest naturalist at heart. Born and raised in Singapore, my passion lies outdoors from diving in the blues of Sipadan to the breathtaking heights of Rinjani! With regards to wildlife, I've interned at research institutes and have extensive field experience with animals in and around Southeast Asia. I'm also the host of "Naturalist Night Adventure" right here on Airbnb! So be sure to check that out as well! My hobbies and interests include nature photography, diving, trekking and wildlife observation. Equipped with an educational background in both veterinary science and business marketing, I now spend my days (and nights) treading between both fields. I'm also a qualified divemaster, boater and medic. An avid traveller myself, I love interacting with new people and exchanging stories!
Low tides will expose the submerged coastal reefs and a wide array of biotopes such as seagrass meadows, hard coral flats and even silty bottoms (muck).
