Yacht Party at Just $49 Per Person with Activities Like Snorkelling & Kayaking

When I was a little boy, I was conditioned to think that unless I start a company like Facebook or Google, I’d never have a chance to step into a yacht.

I was wrong. As I grew older, I stepped on another type of yacht, one that was filled with best-est friends and memories that I’d keep preciously in the back of my head forever.

The name of the yacht is called Penguin Tekong.

Okay, that’s a passenger ship instead of a yacht, but it’s the closest encounter I had with a yacht.

Now that I’m an adult with hair and whatnot, I’m convinced that I’ll never step into a yacht unless I somehow come across a deal online about a yacht promotion.

And lo and behold…this suddenly popped out in my Facebook newsfeed, as if Facebook does know what I’m thinking (it doesn’t…right?):

$49 per person? For a yacht experience?! And I don’t need to be a patreon for SGInstaBabes?

And the best part? It’s not going to be just an Instagram-worthy experience in the yacht. We’ll actually get to explore Lazada Island!

That would be the best shopping spree ever! I mean, Laz—oh, wait. It’s Lazarus Island, not Lazada Island.

It turns out that Lazarus Island is even more exciting. The uninhibited island is a hidden beach that has become many couples’ wedding photoshoot setting, and only receive 40,000 visitors in 2014, which means you’ll feel like a Crazy Rich Asian there with its exclusivity.

But hey, we’re talking about the yacht, so what can we expect?

According to the Facebook post, this is the yacht that you’ll be humblebragging taking pictures in:

  • Sightseeing at Lazarus Island.(Rental for BBQ pit and chef available)

I don’t know about you, but I’ll rather stay in the yacht throughout #justsaying

Well, of course it’s not going to be an overnight stay (what do you expect for $49?) but a 4-hour event, but hey: that’s like only $12.25 per hour. Cheaper than KTV, no?

Pricing

Now, here’s when it gets interesting: it’s actually for a group instead of individuals. Sort of like a chalet gathering instead of a couple’s outing.

  • Weekday: Start from $599
  • Weekends: Start from $799

*accommodate up to 18 pax with extra charges

It’s unknown whether the $49 per pax package is one of these, and to know more, simply PM them in Facebook.

And yes, PM-ing them on Facebook is important because that’s how they work.

Weekend Go Where, The Travel Agency That Has Facebook-ed

So, what exactly is Weekend Go Where?

According to its Facebook page description, it’s a “Singapore Tourism Board (STB) licensed travel agency” and the team “consists of young entrepreneurs graduated from NUS & NTU, as well as travel industry veterans who have more than 20 years of experience in the travel industry.”

Well, when you bring in the veterans with the youngsters, you’ll have a platform like Weekend Go Where, whereby they operate much like a typical travel agency but leverage heavily on technology.

Which is why you’ll see them being very active in Facebook and you can book your tickets or whatnot through communication on Facebook.

They even have an app (Android or iOS), and let’s just say that any company with an app is a goody company, because we know how expensive it is to develop one.

So, interested in the deal? As mentioned earlier, simply PM them in Facebook. Just think of PM-ing as sitting in their shop and asking questions about the deals.

It’s that simple (and we understood from some friends that their customer service in Facebook is top-notch!).
