Sea kayaking the inner islands of Shelter Bay Hong Kong

Another glorious (but a bit windy) day around the Inner Islands of Shelter Bay.

Today we had visitors form Korea and China, highlighting how important Global Geoparks are to the world. In 1 week alone we have had visitors from 7 different countries!

However, some of today’s people had been to Sai Kung before as they were students in Hong Kong, but never to explore the bay from the ocean.

We circumnavgated Sharp Island as well as took sometime and swim and enjoy the clear waters of the bay. Another glorious day in paradise.

Brilliant day - it pays to ignore the weather forecast

School holidays in Australia means a bunch of intrepid teachers decide to explore Hong Kong from a different perspective.

Paddling to Dog Island takes you away from the densely populated islands to a totally deserted one, with the exception of 2 peaceful souls with 4 legs, affectionately known as ‘red dog’ and ‘black dog’, who make Dog Island their home.

Always a good day when you find peace and quiet in Hong Kong.

Tai Tam Bay + another glorious autumn day.

Today we explored Tai Tam Bay with visitors from South Korea. Both expereinced travellers, having served time in the national army, they were impressed with the diversity that can be found in Hong Kong. 

I was also impressed with the way these 2 young men had the ability to learn new skills so quickly – not just sea kayaking (a totally new experience to them) but also how to swim! Incredible, brave and very capable guys.

Thanks for coming sea kayaking with us.

Tai Tam Bay + more on a glorious autumn day.

The conditions were close to perfect (as to be expected at this time of year) so with a number of local sea kayakers, we decided to head out of the bay and head for Round Island, a beautiful and isolated island on the edge of the East Lamma Channel.

Round Island as a beautiful white sand beach and a fabuous view of Repulse Bay on Hong Kong Island.

Lunch and a swim here was the perfect way to enjoy that view.

Our paddle back to Tai Tam was a bit more strenuous due to the change in tides, but it was a great journey, well worth the effort.

The inner islands of Selter Bay are a beautiful reminder of what Hong Kong was before its industrialisation – and why the United Nations has recognised this place a globally unique and significant.

The weather has now started to cool down an is perfect for sea kayaking. New friends made and old friends united. A great day.

Signs of the typhoon now disappearing. Almost back to normal.

Te inner islands of Selter Bay are recovering quickly. Green buds are replacing bare brances and crystal clear water has replaced the murky sediment. Nature has an amazing healing power.

The weather was perfect for us. Overcast skies that provided protection against the still hot autumn sun. The winds were fresh from the north but did not provide any issues for our intrepid paddlers.

A great day.

Today we paddled with a young & adventurous genius.

After briefly listening to an explanation about the formation of tropical cyclones and the pirate history of Hong Kong from our 9 year old guest, we paddled off into beautiful Tai Tam Wan, wondering how a 9 (only just) year old had such a comprehensive knowledge of the natural and cultural world. We were later informed, she liked to study – but things that she wasn’t supposed to. I must admit, I was impressed, very, very, very impressed.

AND, a joy to paddle with. Not only conversationally enlightening, but a stoic paddler who at one point suggested I could have a rest as she was able to paddle for both of us for a while. My heart lifts knowing the future has new guardians that will be looking after our fragile world.

Sea kayaking always pleases me, but today it was a different day. It was not the kayaking that made my heart sing, it was the humble invincibility and caring of a blisteringly clever 9 year old. Keep it up young lady, you are and will be making the world a much better place. My cap is doffed!

Just days after a typhoon devastated Hong Kong.

Our trip to the inner islands of the UNESCO Gloabl Geopark was the first after the devastating super typhoon hit Hong Kong. 

We witnessed first hand the chaos that it as caused, wit trees sprouting in te middle of the ocean and super yachts beaching themselves high up on the breakwater.

The water was still lurky with the huge amount of sediments swept into the ocean from hundreds of flooded creeks, but it was a day to remember. It’s always great fun to sea kayak around the inner islands of Shelter Bay, Hong Kong.

A stormy day - nothing better than paddling in the rain.

Tai Tam Bay highlights the total contrasts of Hong Kong – and when seen from the water it is amazing. Add the surreal atmosphere of heavy rain and the kayak trip tkes on a whole new feeling. 

A great day.
