Overview

Enjoy a unique opportunity to see Hong Kong's endangered pink dolphins in their scenic, natural habitat in and around the Pearl River Delta, between Hong Kong and Macau. It is home to around a thousand Indo-Pacific humpback dolphins or the Sousa chinensis. The world’s pinkest dolphins – pinker even than the Boto dolphins in the Amazon River – live just within a few kilometers of the world’s busiest shipping centre and most densely populated urban area. Chosen as the official mascot of the 1997 handover ceremony, the dolphins are threatened by pollution, overfishing and reclamation. Watching these dolphins swimming freely is a truly wonderful family experience.

Itinerary

You will be picked up from Outside Kawloon Hotel (No. 19 - 21 Nathan Road, Tsim Sha Tsui) at 0850h (8:50am) and taken on a Dolphin Watch tour. You will be accompanied by an English-speaking guide.

Board a boat from the pier and set out on an exciting dolphin watching cruise in the Pearl River Delta. The world’s pinkest dolphins – pinker even than the Boto dolphins in the Amazon River – lives within a few kilometers of the world’s busiest shipping centre and most densely populated urban area. Today, these amazing creatures are threatened by pollution, overfishing and reclamation. This trip is designed to minimize disturbance to the dolphins; therefore, these lovely creatures are comfortable with the vessel being used and sometimes come quite close.

Complimentary tea or coffee is available but passengers are advised to buy their own cold drinks.

96% of trips have successful sightings. If no dolphins are seen, you will be entitled to go for free again on any scheduled cruise subject to availability.

The tour ends at the starting point after approximately 4 hours.
