Canoe or kayak is one of the trending sports in Hong Kong. As you can see, canoeing/kayaking offers a multitude of possibilities, discoveries, experiences and a feeling of well-being. Welcome, hop on board, you will be quickly won over by this water sport that is accessible to all!
Kayaking is often thought of as a summer activity. But summer isn't necessarily the best season for getting started! That's because the sea is often crowded with holiday-makers: boats and jet skis criss-cross the waters, and can be an additional source of stress for beginner kayak tourers. Instead, choose a beautiful spring or autumn day, when it is sunny or even a little cloudy and, most importantly, without wind. To avoid the latter, it is best to set out in the morning: the time of day when the weather and sea conditions are calm. The water is often perfectly calm at 8 in the morning. That said you should always check the weather and tides before leaving, because water that's calm at 8 can become choppy by 10!
So now you are fully equipped and informed: all that's left is for you to find an experienced adventure buddy to show you some suitable kayak spots and the basic navigation rules!
