As our last effort to kayak to St. John's and Pulau Tekukor was foiled by the unexpected bad weather, we are reattempting to explore the 2 islands this May.


This is a sea kayaking trip to two interesting Southern Islands Pulau Tekukor and St John’s Island. Pulau Tekukor used to be a military island. Although we cannot land, we will paddle past closely. St John’s Island was once the world's largest quarantine centre. It is now an oasis of mature trees, abandoned houses, holiday camps and sandy beaches. We will get to enjoy its fabulous sun, sand and sea.
