Have a Hong Kong Junk Boat Experience

Summer fun in Hong Kong is synonymous with ‘junk boat’! Hong Kong junk boats are not junky at all! These high quality yachts hold anywhere from 10-30 guests and most sail right from downtown! Some depart from Sai Kung too. If you like swimming, sun and summertime fun, you’ve got to get onto a junk ASAP!

They usually set sail around 10AM and return around 5PM, but all of this is negotiable.

If you don’t want to wrangle 10-30 of your own friends, hop aboard another groups’ junk boat!  Check out Junks.hk and All That Junk to find boats you can join!

You can lounge in the sun or the shade, but either way it will be hard to NOT have a good time!

Our boat had and open bar stocked with wine, beer and liquor. You can even book your boat as BYOB or alcohol free. Whatever you’d like (within reason of course) the junk boat can accommodate!

The crew serves various brunch-type appetizers as soon as you set sail.

Take a Junk Boat Swim

And once you reach your destination, you will be able to swim! If you’d like a drink in the water, the crew will hurl you a plastic bottle filled with a drink of your choice.  This is hard living, folks.

Some people are even daring/crazy enough to jump off of the top of the boat into the water below. Make sure to avoid doing a belly flop, unless of course you like excruciating pain. 😉

Enjoy Some Lunch

While you swim or lounge on the boat, the crew grills up lunch. Vegetarian options are available, and they are equally as delicious as the meat one.

And then…lunch is served! There is always plenty of food, so make sure you get your fill. You’ll NOT be disappointed.

Inevitably the Hong Kong junk boat experience will come to an end.  Some will be shocked and horrified, while others will take it with more grace.

But the evening sun setting makes it hard to feel anything but peaceful and happy.

And ultimately, even with a little sun burn, everyone always ends up having a good time.

Very cool to know! In spite of time and distance I often find people and places are more similar than they are different!
