1 DAY SEA KAYAK ECO-TOUR

UNESCO GLOBAL GEOPARK

Lai Chi Chung

The Tolo Channel is a rarely visited pristine waterway north of the Sai Kung East & Sai Kung West Country Parks.

This area features clean waters, protected bays and inlets, scattered Hakka villages and remote beaches. 

WHAT TO EXPECT

Starting from our base in Kei Ling Ha San Wai we paddle our sea kayaks north through 3 fathoms Cove into the Tolo Channel.

3 Fathoms Cove was a favourite shelter for the old trading ships in the early days of settlement as it has a deep mud bottom, perfect for anchoring. Surrounded by high mountains which feature cascading waterfalls (in the wet season), this beautiful bay is the home to the white egret and grey herons, both fishing birds.
We pass through a local fishing village before turning east into the channel. 

If the day is warm, we take the opportunity to swim or snorkel in the crystal clear waters. Our kayak journey takes us eastward along the southern coast until we reach the Lai Chi Chung Geopark section.  Here we take a break from our kayaks to visit the old Hakka Village and explore the coastal geological features that make this a unique part of the UNESCO Global Geopark.

Our return journey is via 2 tiny coral atols in the middle of the channel. Peace and solitude in a crowded world makes you wonder if you are still in Hong Kong.

The final kayak route will be determined by the wind and tidal currents on the day. Your guide will select it to match the skills and experience of the paddlers with the conditions at the time. 

We will be using stable and fast double sea kayaks.

WHAT'S INCLUDED

Tung A to Bluff Island Route

We use double sea kayaks unless otherwise requested (single kayaks only for experienced paddlers). Doubles are faster and more stable making it easier for people to do the distances required per day.
This also includes sprayskirts, paddles & spare paddles, bouyancy vests, paddle floats, pumps and other safety equipment.

Our guides are seasoned professionals with international qualifications. Not only are they familiar with the regions in which they paddle, they are also fully trained in sea kayak rescues, first aid and emergency procedures.

We have waterproof cameras and will be taking photographs throughout the entire trip, which will be made freely available at the end. 

This means that you will not need to risk your prescious equipment if it is not waterproof.
