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, that 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.
Either meet us at 8.50am prompt, in Tsim Sha Tsui outside Kowloon Hotel (behind the Peninsula Hotel) or at 9:30am prompt from Tung Chung New Development Pier.The boat will return to Tung Chung New Development Pier around 1pm and the coach will return to Tsim Sha Tsui.
Included in your ticket price is a specialist pink dolphin expert guide, who will give you the low down on Hong Kong’s dolphin population.
Additionally, there will be an accredited local tour guide on hand, who has a wealth of local knowledge about Hong Kong’s history, customs and culture.
Insurance for the trip (inclusive of COVID coverage) is also covered by your ticket, as is transport from Tsim Sha Shui, to Tung Chung and back again.
On the DolphinWatch tour, food and drink are not included in the price.
If a morning spotting pink dolphins isn’t enough excitement for you, add on a sunset cruise. The dolphin watching ends by 1pm, so stay onboard for a gentle five hour cruise from Tung Chung back to Hong Kong Island. Enjoy pizza and snacks with free flow drinks (choose between our alcohol or alcohol-free option) en route. Weather permitting, we can stop for a swim in Discovery Bay.
Sadly, all good things must come to an end and we will drop you off in Central around 6pm.
