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.
