Fast and Fabulous
Whether you are in town for a day or two or have lived here all your life, they can take you places you have not been before and you will see a completely different side of Hong Kong. And you will have great fun getting there!
RIBs are the “4x4 of the Seas” – fast but comfortable and very safe in all conditions (that’s why they are the preferred boats of the rescue services, marine police and Special Forces).
Southside Spin ($500/Person 1 hour)
Pick-up in Aberdeen, travel through Aberdeen Harbour, speed along the Southside of Hong Kong Island seeing Deepwater Bay, Repulse Bay and Stanley Bay, possibly also Tai Tam Bay and Po Toi Islands and Waglan Light. Return to Aberdeen or disembark in Stanley (for shops and restaurants and Stanley Market). Also possible (by prior arrangement) to stop at Po Toi for a fresh seafood meal in a traditional Hong Kong seafood restaurant.
Southside to Harbour Blast ($800/Person 2 hours)
Pick-up in Aberdeen, travel through Aberdeen Harbour, speed along the Southside of Hong Kong Island seeing Deepwater Bay, Repulse Bay and Stanley Bay, Tai Tam Bay, Po Toi Islands, Shek-O, Tung Lung Chau, Waglan Light, enter the Eastern Harbour, Lei Yun Mun Gap stilt houses, Museum of Coastal Defence, Chai Wan fishing harbour, Kai Tak Cruise Terminal, Convention Centre. Disembark in Causeway Bay Typhoon Shelter right next to the Noon Day Gun and in the very heart of the vibrant Causeway Bay district. This trip also works well in reverse, with the possibility to end at Stanley for the famous market, restaurants and shops.
Lantau and Tai O ($1000/Person half day)
Pick-up in Aberdeen, travel through Aberdeen Harbour, cross one of the busiest shipping lanes in the world at the north end of Lamma Island, race past the fast ferries and hydrofoils on their way to Macau, speed along the beautiful south side of Lantau island and arrive at the famous traditional fishing village of Tai O. This trip can end in Tai O (return over land or carry on to the Big Buddha and cable car) or you can return to Aberdeen. You will see the massive new bridge between Hong Kong and Macau and there is a possibility of seeing the endangered pink dolphins (unique to the Pearl River delta). This trip could (by prior arrangement) also be combined with a visit to the lovely The Beach House restaurant on Cheung Sha Beach, South Lantau.
Ninepins, Saikung and Tung Ping Chau Excursion ($1600/Person full day)
From Aberdeen (or Causeway Bay) along the Southside/ through the Harbour, past Tung Lung Chau, Clearwater Bay, past the beautiful coast line of Saikung Country Park, the Nine Pin Islands and the spectacular rock formations of the Geo-Park, past the High Island Dam and into the (usually calm) waters of Mirs Bay. Stop for a walk and food at the unique Tung Ping Chau (very few Hongkongers have visited it – and only a few kms from the Mainland), explore its beautiful beaches, unique geography and search for its lost village (Hong Kong’s Angkor Wat). Return to Causeway Bay or Saikung Town (travel back to HK Island by land)
