Summers are usually very hot and humid in Hong Kong; practically unbearable, unless you stay inside during the day.
Perhaps you have to go to work or school, in which case, you get a welcome escape from the blistering heat.
But, what if you want to have some fun afterwards, when the sun has gone down?
How about squid / cuttlefish fishing?
Squid fishing season runs from the beginning of June to the end of September, making right now the best time to go!
We highly suggest going in the late evening to catch the most cuttlefish, and we do offer several night boat packages especially for cuttlefishing, which you can find HERE.
If you decide to rent a boat especially for cuttlefishing, you may be wondering what else there is to do on board, as well as where to go!
So, let us give you our top recommendations of popular night fishing routes!
⭐ Ultimately, the boat captain will choose the best location depending on the time of year and his/her own past experience.
Urban Night Fishing Routes
Suggested Route #1 ( Tseung Kwan O ) : Board At Central / Tsim Sha Tsui Pier → Victoria Harbour Tour → Tseung Kwan O → Dock For Dinner → Enjoy On Board Entertainment & Facilities / Go Fishing → Cook & Eat Freshly Caught Cuttlefish → Return To Central / Tsim Sha Tsui Pier
With this route, you will depart from the Central / Tsim Sha Tsui Pier, and head towards Tseung Kwan O.
Enjoy the stunning night view of Victoria Harbour along the way!
Then, the boat will dock in Tseung Kwan O, where you can enjoy dinner on board.
After dinner, it’s time to go fishing!
The boat crew will cook any freshly caught cuttlefish for you to eat.
After enjoying your bounty, you will return to the Central / Tsim Sha Tsui Pier.
Suggested Route #2 ( Southern District ) : Board At Aberdeen Pier → Victoria Harbour Tour → Southern District → Dock For Dinner → Enjoy On Board Entertainment & Facilities / Go Fishing → Cook & Eat Freshly Caught Cuttlefish → Return To Aberdeen Pier
This route is very similar to the one above, except it will take you to the southern part of Hong Kong Island instead of Tseung Kwan O.
Board the boat at the Aberdeen Pier, and head towards the Southern District. The boat will pass through Victoria Harbour on the way.
After an on board dinner in the Southern District, it’s time to go fishing!
After fishing and eating to your heart’s content, you will return to the Aberdeen Pier.
Sai Kung Night Fishing Route
Suggested Route #3 ( Sai Kung ) : Board At Sai Kung Pier → Sai Kung Area → Dock For Dinner → Enjoy On Board Entertainment & Facilities / Go Fishing → Cook & Eat Freshly Caught Cuttlefish → Return To Sai Kung Pier
This route is essentially the same as the previous two, except the start and end location is Sai Kung Pier, and you will be traversing the waters of Sai Kung instead!
After docking on any of these routes, you and your party can enjoy a delicious dinner on board!
We offer a wide range of food packages, deliverable directly to the pier of departure. That way, you can feast on the freshest food!

In the later months of the season (August and September), the cuttlefish grow to 5-8 inches, with the longest growing up to 20 inches!
⭐ After you and your party finish fishing, the boat crew will prepare any freshly caught cuttlefish for everyone on board!
If you have any preferences regarding the way the cuttlefish are cooked, please let the boat crew know in advance.
