Families will need to register for the popular activities at Navy@Vivo 2023 happening at VivoCity in November 2023!
Dates: 17 - 19 Nov 2023, 9 am - 9 pm
Admission: Free, balloting required for certain activities
Navy@Vivo returns after a 4 year hiatus! This year's Navy@Vivo 2023 will be happening at VivoCity from 17 to 19 Nov 2023. Admission is free but families will need to ballot for popular activities, including boarding the RSS Endeavour, riding a Fast Craft Utility and more!
Let's take a look at what you can expect at the experience!
Visit a Submarine Exhibit and More
Dive into an experiential exhibition at Central Court, VivoCity! Through the exhibition, visitors can learn more about the importance of the sea to Singapore and how the Singapore Navy protects our maritime nation. Enter the immersive theatre for a sensorial maritime experience and learn how the Navy conducts multi-dimensional warfare against surface, air and sub-surface threats!
For the first time, visitors can visit a new submarine exhibit to experience how underwater operations are conducted, and also have a hands-on experience at virtual simulators similar to the ones used by the Navy for training.
Board the RSS Endeavour - the Navy's Largest Ship
Head to the Promenade at Level 1 and step on board the Endurance-class Landing Ship Tank (LST), RSS Endeavour! See first-hand what it takes to operate one of the Navy's largest ships and learn more about the roles and capabilities of the LSTs, as well as the various operations and exercises that they have participated in.
Not just ships, families can also catch the S-70B Seahawk Naval Helicopter on the flight deck of the LST and learn how it supports various operations at sea.
*Families who visit the RSS Endeavour should take note that you will be passing through relatively tight spaces and climb a total of 12 flights of stairs, which are steeper and narrower than the stairs that you may be used to. There are approximately 10 steps per flight, amounting to approximately 120 steps!
Ride On a Fast Craft Utility
Join the Navy for an exhilarating ride on board the Fast Craft Utility (FCUs)! Expect stunning views of the Singapore skyline while learning about maritime heritage through stories of Tanjong Berlayer and Long Ya Men (Dragon Tooth's Gate), see the oil refineries on Bukom Island, and our Keppel and Brani container terminals through which much of our daily necessities pass through.
Happening at the VivoCity Amphitheatre on Level 3, move to the beat with performances by the SAF Music and Drama Company as they keep you entertained with familiar tunes before the elite divers demonstrate their prowess, strength and endurance in a gruelling boat physical training session.
Storytelling Sessions for Children
Families can also head to library@harbourfront to take part in an engaging storytelling by the men and women from the Navy! They will be reading stories from the Ahoy, Navy! series of children's books, with a different story told at each session.
