Take a relaxing morning cruise in the Hong Kong harbour and see the city’s most famous landmarks in Central including Hong Kong's tallest building, the award-winning Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Centre in Wan Chai as well as the former British Royal Naval Base.

The tour also sails east to Shau Kei Wan typhoon shelter where local fishermen moor their fishing boats. The grand finale comes in the form of the firing of the legendary Noon Day Gun at Causeway Bay, Kong which was immortalised by Noel Coward in “Mad Dogs and Englishmen”.
