Pink Dolphin Watching in Tai O

Pink dolphins (Sousa chinensis) are also known as Chinese white dolphins. Their colors vary in shades of pale pink and white. One would think they should be very easy to spot against Tai O’s surrounding light jade green water. But that’s not the case.

From Tai O Market Street, 大澳小艇遊 Tai O Boat Excursion takes visitors to see the pink dolphins regularly. Our boat first cruised through the channels of Tai O to reach the Pearl River Estuary. Out in the open water, the captain slowed down and shut off the motor whenever someone spotted something that resembled a pink dolphin. With patience and focus, we saw one! It looked like a pillow swooshed out of the water and back in within a flash.
