Remarks: In view of prevailing wind and strong waves in winter, visitors are advised to undertake boat tours on fine days with stable weather (summer will be more appropriate). For safety reason, visitors are advised to stay on board and avoid going on shore the remote islands.

Boat Tour of Sai Kung Islands

Spectacular hexagonal volcanic columns are the highlight of this boat tour. As most offshore islands in Sai Kung are remote, boat tour provides the best way for visitors to appreciate their scenic beauty. In addition, one can see the diverse morphology of sea caves, sea stacks and sea arches, as well as depositional landforms such as beaches and tombolos. Visitors can undertake the boat tours by hiring ferries at Sai Kung Pier.

How to get there

Hire a boat and sail from Sai Kung pier or join local tour.
