Kwo Chau Islands SUP Discovery Tour

From: $650.0

Tour Details:

  • This tour is suitable for experienced paddlers as the route and water conditions of the tour can be challenging.
  • Our Kwo Chau Islands SUP Discovery Tour will bring you to the Volcanic Rock Region of the UNESCO Global Geoparks, exploring the uninhabited archipelago’s globally rare hexagonal rock columns,  impressive sea- and wind-eroded coastlines, and different naturally formed sea arches and carves in close proximity!

About Kwo Chau Islands / Ninepin Group:

  • Ninepin Group of islands, comprising three large islands — North, South and East Ninepin Islands — and numerous smaller islets, known as Kwo Chau, or ‘Fruit Islands’ in Cantonese. This uninhabited archipelago, created from volcanic hexagonal rock formations, lies 15 km southeast of Sai Kung.
  • North Ninepin is home to Big Cannon Rock, a gigantic hexagonal column rising horizontally from its east-coast cliff, while South Ninepin features Rock Chamber, a dramatic, horizontal, rectangular cave that is a favourite among Instagram photography buffs.
  • The Geopark’s volcanic columns — which differ in texture and chemical composition from similar rock formations elsewhere in the world — created cliffs that rise up to 100 metres high. Most columns are about 1.2 metres in diameter, but some can exceed 2 metres. The coastal waters around the Ninepins offer a sheltered habitat for a rich diversity of coral and more than 120 species of fish.
