A relaxed boat tour off Sai Kung by traditional wooden sampan. Enjoy the natural scenery of the Hong Kong Geopark, including the peculiar pineapple bun rocks and a stunning sea arch, and visit the culturally interesting salt making island of Yim Tin Tsai.

After meeting up at Wu Kai Sha MTR station, we take a public bus to Sai Kung Pier, where the sampan is waiting for us.

We first visit the culturally interesting island of Yim Tin Tsai, an island where the ethnic Hakka people lived mainly off salt making. By the end of the 19th century the island fully converted to catholicism. Nowadays you can find statues of angels and a saint and a small chapel, but no traditional ancestral halls or other features commonly seen in Hakka culture.

After that the boat will take us to the southern tip of Jin Island, passing by rugged shorelines riddled with sea caves and other coastal landforms. Here we will see a great sea arch. The famous hexagonal rock columns of Sai Kung are well exposed here.

The next stop is the Elephant Nose Rock at the tip of Sharp Island. Finally we get off at Sharp Island to walk over the beach and the tombolo (a natural land bridge which floods at high tide), and to have a look at the many different rocks at this island.

The tour ends at Sai Kung Pier. The tour may be performed in opposite direction, subject to the tide levels.During the boat ride you will learn about the geological history of the area, the supervolcano that used to be here, and how the various landforms we see are formed.
