    Cable-ski in Batam

    by yann.ng Written Feb 14, 2008

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Cable skiing is similar to water-skiing except that the skier is not pulled by a boat but by an overhead cable which is suspended 8-12 meters above water surface by specifically designed pylons.

    I prefer cable-ski to water-ski as there's no smelly exhaust from the boat and the cable-ski in Batam is in fresh waters, so you don't get stinging eyes as compared to SKI360° located at East Coast Park, Singapore where the ski is done on sea water.

    A day package for only SGD$85/pax incl. of
    - 2 Way Ferry (Sin-Btm-Sin)
    - Land Transfers
    - 1 Full Day Ski Pass at the Cable-Ski Park
    - Packet Lunch
    - Usage of all house skiing equipments
    - Coaching by in house instructors

    Note that the package rates exclude the departure fee from Batam:
    S$3 if depart from Waterfront City Ferry Terminal
    S$7 if depart from Sekupang Ferry Terminal

    In summary, cable-skiing in Batam is cheaper and a better learning place for beginners. Knee-boarding is available too.

    NOTE: Batam time is 1hr behind Singapore time.

    Equipment: Swim wear. Ski equipments are provided in the day package.

    Para Sailing at Batam

    by bkarjee Written May 30, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Some of us also did Para sailing at the waterfront centre in Batam. The rate was S$10. The duration was 10-15 minutes and the sailing was very safe. They stop the activity at 1730-1800 hrs because of poor light.

    Banana Boat ride at waterfront city
    1 more image

    Sea sports activities like Banana Boat ride, parasailing, jet skiing are available at waterfront city centre and they are very reasonably priced.
    We tried this Banana boat ride at Waterfront city and they charged us S$10 per person. There has to be a group of 4-6 persons. If there are less persons, they will charge more. They accept Sing dollars here. This is a very safe sport and be prepared to get wet.

    Bowling at Lucky Plaza Shopping mall

    This is not exactly a ports travel item, but related to various entertainment form available in Batam.
    There are numerous mega shopping malls in Batam City (Nagoya and Batam Centre). Most of these shopping malls will have a floor dedicated for entertainment for all age groups. Bowling facilities are invariably there on all these entertainment floors and the sessions are very cheap. One session for one person may cost in the range of IDR 11K (Sing dollors 2 only). We had a gala time at the bowling centre at one of the shopping malls
