Hop on Board


There’s far more to Hong Kong than the bustling urban districts and one of the best ways to explore its many remote islands and hidden beaches is on board a rigid inflatable boat (RIB) from Zoom Adventure Ribs. Operating a fleet of powerful six-meter RIBs, which are twice as fast as a typical speedboat, the company offers a series of customizable itineraries that capture some of the most remarkable landscapes in the territory, from the deep-set bays of Hong Kong Island’s southern flanks to the marine parks of Sai Kung. You can even venture out to Tung Ping Chau, the city’s easternmost isle and home to protected rock formations, abandoned villages, and a colonial-era military camp.
