The hot days of summer are the perfect excuse to end your land-lubbing and head out on the South China Sea, to explore the many uninhabited islands of our city state, and to add new horizons to your Hong Kong adventures. If you’re looking to throw some high octane into the mix then the average junk boat isn’t going to get the heart racing, but we know what will.
Zoom Adventure Ribs is a Hong Kong company that specializes in fast boats and racing pulses. Operating a fleet of powerful 21ft rib boats, the company offers a series of customizable itineraries that capture some of the most remarkable – and rarely experienced – landscapes in the territory, from the deep-set bays of Hong Kong Island’s southern flanks, to the imposing peaks of Lantau, and the marine parks of Sai Kung – you can even venture out to Tung Ping Chau, the city’s eastern most point and home to protected rock formations, abandoned villages, and a colonial-era military camp. You’ll do all this exploring aboard the 4x4 of the sea, a rigid inflatable boat in the style used by special forces, police units, and emergency services the world over. Stop in at remote local restaurants; add the city’s newest beach club – the soon-to-open Bathers on Lantau’s Poi O Beach – to your bespoke itinerary; or pack a picnic and rally the confidants to get the most out of your high-speed day on the water.
Because summer doesn’t last forever.
