How many Pink Dolphins can you spot?
Hong Kong’s pink dolphins are rare and endangered. Certainly, it’s a privilege to be able to observe them in their natural habitat.
So, we were sad to hear that Hong Kong’s only ecological dolphin watching organisation, DolphinWatch, needed to temporarily halt operations due to pandemic restrictions. Then we got to thinking, maybe we could help and it turns out that we could and we did! Ladies and Gentlemen, we’re excited to be working in collaboration with Hong Kong DolphinWatch. Together, we are able to offer Hong Kong’s one and only Dolphin Watching Excursion, run with ecology in mind.
Trips are running every Sunday from Tsim Sha Tsui, meeting at 8:50am. More details can be found on our Hong Kong DolphinWatch tour booking page.
Pink Dolphins: Itinerary
We meet in Tsim Sha Tsui to board the coach to Tung Chung where your guide will deliver a detailed introduction to what you will experience aboard the DolphinWatch boat. We will spend around three hours out at sea, heading towards Tai O, where we usually spot some small dolphin pods. The coach will then return you to Tsim Sha Tsui before lunchtime. There is an option also to meet the boat at the pier in Tung Chung, just select this option when booking.
