As one of the most populated places in the world, you might think finding untouched nature in Hong Kong is a near impossible feat. Little do you know of the tropical paradise waiting for you in the east of the New Territories. On this full day kayaking tour you'll practice your kayaking skills around the islands and coastline of Sai Kung. Get training from professional guides on hand to give you tips to improve your kayaking technique and to lead the group to wetland, the home of unique wildlife. Stopping for lunch break facing nothing but blue sky and ocean, you can hop out and delve into the underwater world with a snorkel. You'll soon understand why the area is sometimes referred to as the Okinawa of Hong Kong!
Paddle underneath the stars along the coastline of Cheung Chau island with this evening night paddle activity and get to see Cheung Chau from a completely different perspective! Just bring yourself, a companion (or an entire group of travelers!), and prepare yourself for an experience you'll never forget. Meet up with the tour group at the Windsurf Centre, learn the basics of kayaking thanks to your professional instructors, and paddle away. Row along the coastline and who knows? You might even see the bioluminescent algae light up the sea below you. After your sea kayaking activity is done, you can head down to the town and visit the night markets. Grab some drinks and indulge in the local products (at own cost) - a perfect way to end the evening!
Get a wholly different experience of Tai O with this sea kayaking journey. Best known for its quaint stilt houses, the ancient Tai O fishing village is undoubtedly picturesque; exploring it on kayak only adds to the charm. See islands of bygone pirate days before heading to the coast of Lantau Island Country Park, the site of the Pink Dolphins' habitat, then paddle on to where a short hike will lead you to a beautiful waterfall picnic site for lunch.
We were a group of 7 ranging in age from the nine years old to in the fifties. We are all reasonably fit but with limited to no kayaking experience. Anthony and Shreya adapted to all of our abilities so skillfully, the experience was fun, challenging, and highly entertaining. The sight of Hong Kong and Cheng Chau islands from the sea as the sun sets is just beautiful. We worked pretty hard, figuring out the technicalities of kayaking on the open water but we were gifted with a perfect evening too. We saw stars and moon which are not always visible in the Hong Kong night sky. Thank you, Anthony and Shreya!
I have been on a number of these personalised kayaking trips around the stunning islands of Sai Kung. The trips are well organised, safe and informative - marine edutainment at its best...with a little bit of physical exercise thrown in. Depending on the sea conditions one can paddle through some of the sea arches and hike up a small hill on one of the islands. All the trip details are listed on the company website, including how to get to Sai Kung and a write up on the kayak activity.
If you are in Hong Kong, leave the shopping for a grey and rainy day and go out for a paddle!
The trip is very well organized. The coaches are very helpful, friendly and thought of everything that we needed including tea and coffee! Quality of food was really good, way beyond expectation. The kayak was fun and the beach was quite secluded so we really loved it. We would definitely recommend it!
I received a message from Yellow soon after booking. He sent information on what to bring and where to meet. My subsequent questions were answered quickly. It was our first time to Yim Tin Tsai, and Yellow took us on a mini tour of the island. We kayaked among the mangroves and the kids (ages 6.5, 12, and 17) loved hunting for mangrove seeds (that look like green beans). We got lunch at the food kiosk (Yellow reserved a private seating area and we pre-ordered) and then kayaked out to a nearby island. We didn't have a lot of time to snorkel, but we could even see the coral from the kayaks. After we returned, we planted the mangrove seeds, and Yellow showed us where we could rinse off. We picked up some locally produced salt at the end of the day before taking the last ferry back to Sai Kung. It was a great day and the assistant, Mouse, was great, too. He even noticed on the ferry back that we had forgotten a backpack at the shower area and ran back to get it for us! We enjoyed our excursion a lot (and the weather was perfect too).
Absolutely loved this experience. We booked and were the only two people on the day but our Klook guide/ Kayak Instructor Eli gave us his full attention and was a brilliant host. Spend the day going from island to island in Sai Kung, having lunch with the locals, swimming amongst the coral reefs.
Eli also took photos for us from his phone so we had great memories to share with friends and family.
All in all, couldn't have asked for a better experience or tour guide.
Note: 1) Bring long sleeve swim gear and snorkeling gear if you want to make the most of it and not burn to crisp. 2) Also a change of clothes although the nearest facility is 10 minutes walk at Sai Kung Sports Centre. 3) Kayaks don't have any decent mounting surfaces for GoPro so body mount is advisable.
Thanks Klook to help us add 2 persons to join the activity in last minute. Thanks Eli's help to guide our kayaking trip. He provided the professional training and guided us kayak around some small islands for the whole day :)
If you do not have any experience for kayaking, highly recommend to join it!
