From the NParks website: "The Sisters’ Islands Marine Park Public Gallery on St John’s Island will be closed during the weekends on 17, 18, 24, 25 and 31 October as well as 1, 7 and 8 November, as the daily scheduled ferry services to St John’s Island will be temporarily stopped during the Kusu Pilgrimage season (13 October to 11 November 2015). Please visit us on weekdays during this period or on weekends from 14 November onwards.”

If you would like to visit the Public Gallery on a weekday during this period (13 Oct-11 Nov), you will need to charter your own boat as the public ferry is suspended.

If you are departing from Marina South Pier, expect a parking crunch and boarding delays during this period. More details about the Kusu Pilgrimage season impacts on the wild shores of singapore blog.
