A great way to have fun and see Hong Kong. Whether you are in Hong Kong for a day or two, or have lived here all your life, ZOOM RIBS can take you to places you have never been before. You will see a completely different side of Hong Kong, and have great fun getting there!

ZOOM is a 7.5m long RIB (rigid inflatable boat). RIBs are the “4×4’s of the sea”. They are used around the world by Special Forces, Police (including the Hong Kong Police) and rescue services because they are very safe, extremely fast and comfortable at high speeds.

Maximum Capacity: 11 guests
