May 06, 2019 – Tai Tam Bay sea kayaking in Hong Kong

May 06 2019 UNESCO sea kayak_06

May 06, 2019 – Tai Tam Bay sea kayaking in Hong Kong

Tai Tam Bay on a misty summer day.

Sea kayaking around Tai Tam Bay behind the seaside town of Stanley highlights these contrasts. Departing our Tai Tam Tuk base we are surrounded by small working sampans and a tiny cluster of waterfront village houses and family businesses. Even the abandoned pumping station that provided water to Hong Kong city in the early 1900’s. But it doesn’t take long (15 mins) before the shorelines on the eastern side are covered in multi-million dollar apartments and the moorings are full of multi-million dollar yachts.  

The west bank is still untouched with old hamlets destroyed by the Japanese invasion in the 2nd world war still empty. Pill boxes on the shoreline as testament to the battles that happened here. Remote beaches only accessible by foot or boat just 3 kms from one of the most popular recreational beaches on Hong Kong Island. The contrasts never stop.

May 24 - UNESCO Geopark Sharp Island exploration

May 24 2019 UNESCO Sharp Island sea kayak_12

Another overcast and calm day - perfect sea kayaking weather in the UNESCO Global geopark.

Shelter Bay is the location of the UNESCO Global Geopark and as such is globally recognised for its unique features and significance. Sharp island is the edge of the mega volcano that created it. Our journey takes us around the island both above and under the water.  

These photos attest to the beauty of the locality and how the mood changes  as you paddle through the inner islands of sheltered beaches and small villages to the more open and exposed coastal features at the eastern end of Sharp Island. A great introduction to sea kayaking and to a place recognised by the United nations as globally significant.

Jul 13, 2018 – north Lamma Island sea kayaking in Hong Kong

Jul 13, 2018 – north Lamma Island sea kayaking in Hong Kong

North Lamma Island on a wet, rainy summer's day.

Sea kayaking around Lamma Island, the third (3rd) largest of the 260 islands that make up Hong Kong and the closest to Hong Kong Island itself highlights these contrasts.   

Departing our base in Sok Kwu Wan (the centre of our island), we immediately paddle through a traditional fishing village and passed the waterfront restaurants. Nothing new. Birds of prey fly overhead (black kite, white egret, grey heron) as we paddle into the East Lamma Channel – the second busiest shipping channel in the world (by volume). On the right is Hong Kong island – 1.2 million people, on the left is Lamma Island – almost undeveloped with 6,000 people. Our journey takes us around the island to the otherside, facing the open south China Sea past villages and then through a a power station! Our final destination is a white sandy beach on the west for a swim before a short hike home. This trip is often run in reverse.

Recognised as globally unique, our 2 day trip takes us around the amazing islands of Shelter Bay, Sai Kung.

Shelter Bay is the location of the UNESCO Global Geopark and as such is globally recognised for its unique features and significance. Paddling around the islands of the bay allow us the ability to go to places that no others can get to. 

These photos attest to the beauty of the locality and how the mood changes quickly as you paddle through the inner islands of sheltered beaches and small villages to the more open and exposed coastal features at the eastern end of Shelter Bay. A great introduction to sea kayaking and to a place recognised by the United nations as globally significant.
