iTHE UNESCO GLOBAL GEOPARK - a true SEA KAYAK JOURNEY

PAK LAP WAN to SAI KUNG - one way

This is a one way journey starts by taking a speedboat ride from Sai Kung to the outer islands of the UNESCO Global Geopark. After 30 minutes, we arrive at a remote camping area and protected bay called Pak Lap Wan. Now the challenge is to paddle our sea kayaks back to where we started from!

The route between the inner islands will be determined by the wind and tidal currents on the day. Your guide will select it based on the skills and experience of the paddlers to suit the conditions at the time. 

This trip explores both the inner and outer islands of Shelter Bay in the UNESCO Global Geopark. Depending on the weather you will snorkel over coral reefs, visit deserted beaches, paddle around culturally significant islands and geologically spectacular coastal features (sea arches, tunnels, caves etc).

This is a strenuous trip so only people who have paddled a sea kayak before should attempt it.
