What You Can Expect

Hong Kong Pink Dolphin Watching Cruise

Spotting Pink Dolphin

Be amazed - these dolphins, found between Hong Kong and Macau, are pinker than the Boto dolphins in the Amazon River in South America and live within a few kilometers of one of the world's busiest shipping centers and most densely populated urban area.

The Pearl River Delta, between Hong Kong and Macau, is home to around a thousand Indo-pacific Humpback dolphins, Sousa chinensis. For some unknown reason, populations of this species along the Chinese coast are bright pink. They are the world's pinkest dolphins - pinker even than the Boto dolphins in the Amazon River in South America- and they live near Hong Kong, within a few kilometers of the world's busiest shipping center and most densely populated urban area.

Chosen as the official mascot of the 1997 handover ceremony, the dolphins are threatened by pollution, over fishing 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.

96% of trips have successful sightings. If no dolphins are seen, passengers are entitled to take another dolphin cruise at no extra cost - subject to availability.

This tour is both wonderful and very sad. After a a 45 minute drive you board a very clean and comfortable boat for the dolphin watching cruise. After about an hour and a half with no luck, we were about to turn back when a small pod of dolphins were sighted. These wonderful creatures are becoming more and more rare in Hong Kong waters and the number sighted this year has dwindled to below 60. The number in Chineses waters is unknown and sadly this unique little dolphin may become extinct in the next few years. Conservation measures are being taken and the money generated from this tour goes some way towards those measures. Even without sighting any dolphin, this is still a good tour, with a couple of hours out on the waters away from the hustle and bustle of Hong Kong.

The dolphin tour was wonderful! The guides were friendly, spoke great English and were quite funny. They also had great knowledge of the dolphins and their fight against extinction. We spotted saw many dolphins, quite a few with babies, and some came so close you could hear them.

Fantastic! 2 tips - take sunscreen and if u want to do the big budda do it when u are doing this tour as they will drop u there as its only about 5 mins away. We saw alot of Dolphins - at least 15 or so. Very playful and came up quite close some of them. Worth every cent.

A very fun and informative trip to see the beauitful rare pink dolphins, which I and my partner enjoyed very much - there were lots of dolphins swimming near the boat the day we went, we weren't disappoined at all even though we had to be quick to spot them :) The souvenirs available on the boat were great too.
