Power boating activities are going to increase in a big way in Singapore especially with the establishment of the Marina Reservoir and catalyzed by the activities that would be brought about by the Marina Bay Sands, Resort World Sentosa and mega marina projects at Sentosa and Keppel Bay in addition to existing marina all over Singapore. Also boosted by the gradual freeing up of water catchment areas e.g. reservoirs, for recreational activities, volume of power boating activities will soar even further.
In Singapore, one needs to hold a PPCDL if he wants to drive a powered pleasure craft within the port waters. To obtain a PPCDL, he needs to complete a mandatory course that is required by the Maritime and Port Authority of Singapore (MPA). This is the PPCDL Course.
