Our group will join the Adventure Tours guided boat trip around the Sai Kung geopark is famous for its magnificent hexagonal rock columns, and the sweeping coastal landforms which includes sea arches, sea caves, geos and sea stacks. Besides the interesting geology, the area is also rich in history.

This tour will take you first to Yim Tin Tsai, a now mostly abandoned island, previously a major sea salt production site.

The next destination is Jin Island, famous for its rugged coastline, and one of Hong Kong's largest sea arches.

Then we sail north again, towards Kiu Tsui Chau (Sharp Island), with several sea caves and the whole setting resembling an elephant's nose.

Arriving at the beach we will go on shore, to the pebble beach, a sandy beach and the tombolo connecting the main island to tiny islet Kiu Tau to learn about how these are formed.

From here it is just a short ride back to Sai Kung town, finishing our afternoon out on the sea.

Depending on the tides, this tour may also be done in the opposite direction.

Please sign up no later than Thursday, 8 August so we can secure our seats on the boat!
