General information for all sea kayak tours....
Like anything in life, hope and expectations play a role in how we react emotionally. If expectations are not met, we feel disappointed or frustrated. If an experience goes beyond our expectations, we feel happy.
In an effort to create realistic expectations and positive mental preparation, here are a few points to understand.
WEATHER & SEA CONDITIONS
All sea kayak trips are at the mercy of the weather and subsequent sea conditions. The trip descriptions on this website and in our promotional materials are based on a trip operating in normal weather and sea conditions. However, these conditions change regularly and so, as with everything outdoors, can become more difficult than expected.
If this occurs, it is no ones fault. It is up to each individual to choose a positive attitude. With that, your experience will be a positive one. Nature is our playground.
PARTICIPANT SKILLS AND EXPERIENCE
As safety is always the most important element of any sea kayak tour, we can only paddle as fast as the slowest paddler.Joining a group tour means choosing to go-with-the-flow.
All of our tours are created to paddle between 10 and 15kms in a day for the inexperienced paddler (unless otherwise stated).
We assume that people who are on our tours are here to enjoy the unique scenery and experience the trip offers – not as a training exersize or fitness regime.
A more relaxed pace allows for a more intimate experience and exploration of the intertidal marine life and appreciation of the scenery.
OTHER THINGS UNEXPECTED
When sea kayaking (the same for any nature based tour), unexpected things can occur. Sea Kayak Hong Kong has run hundreds of sea kayak tours in Hong Kong waters so, in general, has planned for most contingencies.
However, unexpected things are unexpected, so our guides or instructors will sometimes have to make decisions on the fly. Please understand that all decisions made by our staff during the trip are final.
If you have any issues, please bring them to the attention of the management immediately after the trip is over. We will listen to all feedback. If there are things needing to be resolved we will do that immediately too.
