Tour description provided by Viator

Join this Hong Kong cruise to witness the world's pinkest dolphins at play!

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.
