On this journey, our vessels will take you on a great boat tour, listening to the expert commentary from a knowledgeable audio guide to learn about the landmarks that embody each era of the Aberdeen Typhoon Harbour. (*The boat tour takes about 25-30 minutes) After the boat tour, you'll enter the traditional houseboat. On the houseboat, there is a cultural exhibit on Hong Kong fishermen, with old photographs and fishing tools available to show you what life here used to be like. Complimentary delicious local drinks and snacks will be provided.
Hi! My name is Kenny, Aberdeen (Ap Lei Chau) is my home town. My grandfather was a fisherman and my father is a business man works on marina related projects. I spent a lot of time on water since I was little. Boating and cruising is my passion. I have spent the last 5 years starting up my own boating business and organise boating activities in Hong Kong. I have formed a good team with boating expertise. Aberdeen and Ap Lei Chau contains a lot of great memories with my childhood friends and family. My team and I want to share the rich history and culture of this local town, a different side of Hong Kong!

We will be touring the Aberdeen harbour in our flat-bottomed wooden boat which is called "Sampan" in Asia - Sampan is the most common form of water transport in the old days. You can also see for yourself what it’s like to live on water, as the Aberdeen fishermen did, on our very own houseboat, designed to give you the most authentic experience.
