The RGS is pleased to offer another tour to the magnificent Hoi Ha Wan Marine Park. This includes an eco-guided tour on a glass bottomed boat. The marine tour is run in conjunction with the WWF at its Marine Centre in Hoi Ha Wan near Sai Kung.

The Hoi Ha Wan Marine Park is one of the finest marine parks in Hong Kong.  It is surrounded by lush green hills and situated in a sheltered bay north of the Sai Kung West Country Park.  It covers an area of over 260 hectares and is home to more than 60 coral and 120 fish species. 

This trip provides an exciting opportunity to appreciate valuable marine resources with an interactive workshop to learn about ocean ecology, marine protected areas and plankton. Following this is the highlight of the day with an eco-guided tour by a covered glass bottomed boat.  The boat offers an amazing vantage point to see one of the best sea areas in Hong Kong with good water quality and diverse marine life.  The waters are rich in coral communities, fish and are surrounded by mangrove trees.
