A short and very interesting kayaking to a small deserted island (Dog Island) from another island - Lamma!. We depart from the shelter of Sok Kwu Wan (Big Net Bay) paddling along the protected coast. You will pass a floating fishing village encompassing the unique, historical lifestyle of the Hong Kong fishermen. Along the coast, hundreds of sea birds including the Grey Heron, White Egret & Black Kite will dive and swoop to catch fish from the ocean. Spectacular. Our destination (Dog Island) is about a 1-hour paddle away, on the edge of the East Lamma Channel, opposite Hong Kong Island. The contrast between this island and Hong Kong is incredible. Here we will rest and swim before circumnavigating the island and heading back to Sok Kwu Wan. Your guide will inform you about local culture, modern Hong Kong and the important role Sok Kwu Wan has played in Chinese history. He will also introduce you to the 2 resident dogs after whom the island is named. The tour departs twice in a day. 9:30 am and 13:30 pm. You will be using double sit-on-top kayaks which are very stable and easy to control.
I'm a seasoned professional sea kayak guide and instructor / whitewater rafter and outdoor educator. Having lived in Hong Kong over the past decade I have explored the entire coastline by sea kayak, in all conditions. This is one of the best places in the world that I have had the pleasure of sea kayaking and it is always a pleasure sharing the experience with people who are visiting. I am currently writing the "Sea Kayaker's Guide to Hong Kong"...

Lamma Island is the 3rd largest island in the Hong Kong archipelago and is a short and scenic 35-minute ferry from the busy city of Hong Kong Central. Dog Island is a small deserted island off the coast of Lamma and directly opposite to Hong Kong Island in the East Lamma Channel.

You do not need to be able to swim as you will be wearing buoyancy vests. You will be paddling on a double kayak with another person. You have to have some fitness to complete the journey.
