A Lantau Island Seakayak Weekend

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

We have new kayaks and new friends so this weekend we take the time to get to know both. A couple of weekends ago we did an adventure day at Lantau. Well this is better.
Our friends on Lantau Island, Ark Eden, run a charity to educate kids about the environment. Well we do the same, so we are combining our resources to help each other and spend the weekend together doing good and having fun!
On Saturday day we are going to do a sea kayak exploration from Moi Wo (Silvermine Beach) before heading back to Ark Eden to help with their environmental efforts (about 2 hours of hard labour in exchange for our camping ovenight!) Camping at Ark Eden in the mountains of Lantau is a completely different experience and one you will remember for a long time. We have camping gear if you don't but make sure you order it.. We also have a campfire under the stars.

Sunday we do some early morning chores before we head out on the water for more of the same except after the paddle we finish with an adventure climb and zipline at silvermine water fall. Ask the people who have tried this if it is fun!!!? We then pack up and head for home.

Come along for a great weekend camping and exploring and helping make a difference!

    Dave & Justin,

    Could you pls help me with some questions?

    1. How many packed meals to bring with?
    2. Should bring BBQ food?
    3. What is the brand & model of the tent & air mattress you lent me in grass island? I will get the same ones tonight if I can get to Chamonix before it closes. Thank you.

      1. For tomorrow, at least you need to have packed lunch. For Sunday, either you prepare a packed lunch with you or there's always supermarkets or 711 in Mui Wo.
      2. Aki Eden is holding a birthday party tomorrow night, so there's no need for bbq food, also kindly respect that NO MEAT is allowed in Aki Eden. But if you want to do bbq in Mui Wo, again there's always supermarkets around.
      3. Triton 2 person tent

    This sounds awesome and would love to join in. I'm in the motion of trying to sign up to a beginner sea kayak course with Surf Hong Kong so that I can hopefully join in on the next adventure :)

    April 5, 2013

    • Dave W.

      Surf Hong Kong no longer do the kayak training for us, this is now handled inhouse by Justin and myself. We have to schedule a series of training days, which will be very soon so that we can get people up to speed before our busy summer ahead.

    Hi, I am new and haven't done sea kayak for a long while. Wondering how physically demanding is this trip? In terms of weather, does it get colder than 15C at night? Would love to join you. Just want to see if I can manage without a sleeping bag.

    • Dave W.

      Hi Anna,

      April 5, 2013

    • Dave W.

      no it doesn't get cold at night. A light sleeping bag is all you need.

  • leslie

    Dave, can I have your phone number? And so what do we need to bring? Thanks!

    March 22, 2013

  • Dave W.

    OK people, we have a house to stay in so you don't need tents. We don't have sleeping bags. You can buy a cheap one for around $100 or a more expensive one for around $500 that will last a long time. We are going to be doing heaps of camping trips this year so I suggest you invest.
    cheers
    Dave

    March 20, 2013

  • Aileen

    Could you provide a bit more detailed itinerary? Would like to know (1) how many hrs of peddling we are expecting each day, (2) if there will be hiking, (3) if we are going to walk to and from the camping site with the camping gear (vs driving/taking taxi), (4) whether it will be a complete wild camping or more civilized camping (shower, drinking water, etc).

    March 20, 2013

  • Aileen

    Don't have any camping gear. Can I borrow?

    March 20, 2013

  • Reni

    Same question - and due to short notice this wknd may not be best (was already making some other plans; not sure if I can still cancel). Hope you'll repeat again --with more advance notice! :-)

    March 20, 2013

  • leslie
