Top Hong Kong Junk Boat Trip Party Dinner Catering Packages 2018

With the end of summer looming near, the time for junk boat parties is now or never! (Or until next year.)

Add some flavor to your next boat party, literally, with our delicious catering packages!

From Thai food to American cuisine, we have it all! You can even add beverage packages to get your drink on!

Keep reading for a taste of each of our featured menus!


Overview

After booking a boat on our website, you will be directed to this page, where you can add on food packages, drink packages, and cute floats.

We currently offer five featured food packages, ranging from more upscale menus to more simple junk boat party sets.

After choosing the package best suited for your party, a window will pop up similar to the one below.

In the window, you will find the details of the package, as well as a drop-down menu of the package’s variations, the menus themselves, the delivery method, and the pick-up points.

After selecting the quantity desired, you can then add to cart!

Note: We will do our best to accommodate any dietary restrictions/special requests regardless of which package you select, so please just let us know beforehand!

Exclusive Kowloon Shangri-La Boating Menu

For our first package, we have partnered with Kowloon Shangri-La, a five-star hotel here in Hong Kong!

This package is perhaps better fitted for a more formal event on one of our cruisers or yachts, and the quality of the food is absolutely guaranteed!

There are three menu variations available (A, B, and C), all of which have a minimum of five people.

Each menu variation has four courses: salads, canapés, mains, and desserts.

Here are a few of the dishes you can choose from:

  • Brie Stuffed With Black Truffle
  • Balik-Style Salmon Wrapped In Thin Crêpe
  • US BBQ Pork Ribs OR Roasted French Free Range Chicken With Roasted Potatoes, Grilled Vegetables & Rosemary Apple Chutney

Sound enticing? We think so too!

Thai Party Meal Set

If you are looking for a more casual option, but with a taste of the exotic, consider our Thai Party Meal Set!

There are two package options: one with beverages, and one without. Both have a minimum of 30 people for Sundays and Public Holidays.

Vegetarian options are also available!

With this set, you’ll get delicious Thai dishes like:

  • Crispy Shrimp Slices
  • Thai Lettuce Wraps
  • Thai-Style Pork Neck
  • Spring Rolls
  • Crispy Chicken Wings
  • Chicken/Pork Satay
  • Thai-Style Fried Rice

Drinks include mineral water and sodas, such as Coca-Cola and Sprite!

Junk Party Set

By far our most affordable option is our junk party set!

With catering available for anywhere between 20 and 60 people, this package also offers plenty of flexibility!

You will get a tasty mix of dishes, such as:

  • French Fries
  • Chicken Nuggets
  • Mini Hot Dogs
  • Chicken Wings
  • Garlic Bread
  • Spaghetti
  • Fried Rice

There are also a few Thai-Style dishes and desserts included in each menu variation!

Buffet Set

You may be expecting some very hungry guests, in which case, we recommend our buffet set!

There are three menu variations available (A, B, and C), all of which have a minimum of 20 people.

Each menu variation has four courses: appetizers, salads, hot dishes, and desserts. Menu C also has a carving station!

Although each menu’s selections differ, here are some items you can expect:

  • Chinese Roast Platter (BBQ Pork, Smoked Duck Breast, Soy Sauce Chicken & Sausage)
  • Sweet & Sour Pork
  • Italian Assorted Vegetables with Parma Ham, Dried Beef & Salami
  • Singaporean Fried Noodles
  • Lobster, Prawn & Fresh Fruit Salad
  • Maple Glazed Ham With Rosemary Honey Sauce
  • Strawberry Cheesecake

You also have the option to add on professional catering services for either 4 hours or 8 hours, depending on your needs, making this package versatile for any type of event!

Light Meal Set

A much lighter alternative to our buffet set is, well, our light meal set!

This set has three tiers: the standard cocktail party menu, the superior cocktail menu, and the deluxe cocktail menu.

Each menu requires a minimum of 25 people (the deluxe menu requires a minimum of 30), and each averages about 8-10 pieces of food per person, with differing selections.

Menus A and B feature cold canapés, sandwiches, hot finger foods, and desserts, including:

  • Pesto Tomato With Smoked Mozzarella Cheese
  • Smoked Salmon Rosettes
  • Sushi Platter (California Rolls & Tuna Maki Rolls ) – Menu B Only
  • Bacon Wrapped Scallops
  • Vegetable Samosas With Mint Sauce
  • Tandoori Chicken Kebabs
  • Mini Fruit Tarts

Beverages are also included in both menus, although Menu B boasts a two-hour free flow of non-alcoholic beverages!

The final menu, Menu C, has the aforementioned dishes, plus a few more.

It is the most extravagant of the three, as it includes wine and beer, as well as a dim sum station for dumplings!

Professional catering services are also available for this set.

Some Things To Note

Although we have a wide range of foods for you to choose from, there are a few details that remain the same for each menu.

Please take note of the following things:

  • All menu items will be served in aluminum trays.
  • All packages will be delivered to the pier of your choosing, depending on which piers are available for selection for each package.

The Difference Between different Water Sports: Wakeboard & Wakesurf

8 Water Sports To Try In Hong Kong

Ever wanted to try wakeboarding?

What about wakesurfing?

Aren’t they pretty much the same thing?

Not quite!

Keep reading for an introduction to these two unique water sports!


Wakeboarding

Wakeboarding evolved from a combination of various sports, namely water skiing, snowboarding, and surfing.

This sport involves coasting on the waves created by the wake of a speedboat. These waves mimic real ocean waves, big enough to ride and even do tricks upon! The rider is towed along behind the boat with a connecting rope.

By far our most popular water sports option, wakeboarding is essentially like wakesurfing, but with a few main differences.

Instead of throwing the connecting rope back to the boat after finding his or her balance as in wakesurfing, riders hold on to the rope to be kept in tow of the speedboat pulling them along.

Due to the specific type of board used in this sport, holding on to the rope is the only way to keep afloat.

Another difference is that wakeboards have boots attached that riders stay strapped into, allowing them to reach faster speeds and greater heights.

These differences make wakeboarding much easier to learn for most people.

Sound reassuring?

Try wakeboarding with us!

We have 2-hour, 3-hour, and 4-hour rentals available.

Some packages can service up to 8 people, so bring your friends!

Wakesurfing

Just like wakeboarding, wakesurfing involves surfing in the wake of a speedboat, atop the waves created by the boat.

Initially, the speedboat pulls the rider out of the water as he or she holds on to the connecting rope.

Once the rider starts riding comfortably, he or she throws the rope back onto the boat, leaving his or her hands completely free!

This sport can be a bit more challenging to pick up at first, especially as riders aren’t attached by boots to the board itself. (The advantage in this is having more freedom for maneuvering and performing tricks.)

Not to worry, however; our boat crews are very friendly and helpful in teaching the basics!

Check out one of our wakesurfing packages for a private session in the gorgeous countryside of Hong Kong: Sai Kung!

The Top Squid/Cuttlefish Night Fishing Routes & Recommendations

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!

Dinner Options

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!

Here are a few of our options…

🔆 Exclusive Kowloon Shangri-La Set

We have teamed up with Kowloon Shangri-La, a five-star hotel in Hong Kong, to launch three exclusive catering menus for your next boat trip. The quality of the food is absolutely guaranteed!

With each menu consisting of appetizers, main dishes, and desserts prepared by the hotel’s professional chefs, you will be sure to receive a luxurious on board experience.

🔆 Thai Cuisine Set

This package is our best value option! It includes 12 special Thai dishes such as pork neck, shrimp slices, and chicken satay, as well as seasonal fruits and great vegetarian options.

At only 180 HKD per person, there is no better bang for your buck!

🔆 Other Selected Sets

In addition to the aforementioned packages, we offer others with more variety. These mixes include multi-national dishes, local-style buffets, and cocktail-esque light snacks. They can all be found here.

Each package has its own characteristics, so choose the menu that best suits your personal preferences!

🔆 Interested in a specific dish or dishes?

We are willing to accommodate! Please contact us for additional options and quotes.

On Board Entertainment & Fishing

Most of our boats are equipped with a complete karaoke and sound system, as well as other entertainment facilities to keep everyone engaged.

The highlight of the night, however, is squid fishing!

⭐ The boat crew will provide you with all of the necessary fishing tools, which saves you the trouble of preparing them yourself!

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.

You can also bring your own baggies to take what you caught back home!

Party On A Junk Boat The Right Way (Food, Drinks, Water Activities)

For those who are junk boat party experts AND those who have never even stepped foot on a boat, here are some helpful tips on how to either step up your game, or learn the ropes.

Party on a junk boat the right way this summer!

 

Last Sunday, June 10th, we hosted the first party of our summer junk boat party series. Our firsthand experience hosting a successful junk boat party can now be your source of advice on perfecting your own junk boat party game.

Keep reading for our pro tips!

Kick-Off

10:30 AM – We all gathered at Central Pier No. 9, everyone’s favorite public pier, and embarked on our boat of choice, a beautiful cruiser.

After a few minutes of setup and introductions, we were on our way to Deep Water Bay. The forecast had warned of rain, but the day was luckily perfect. The sky was a clear and blissful blue, and the water sparkled like diamonds. With the wind in our hair and drinks already in our hands, we passed through Victoria Harbour, transfixed by the amazing skyline and excited for the day ahead.

💡 TIP – Make sure all your guests have access to drinks right away! There’s nothing like enjoying a cool beverage on the way out to Hong Kong’s open waters. Our party had specialty Asian alcohol onboard, such as sake, soju, and rice wine, which our guests loved! Snacks are also a must. We recommend chips and candy for those with a sweet tooth!

 

En Route

11:30 AM – We passed through Aberdeen Harbour and got to take in the scenic Aberdeen Fishing Village on our way to Deep Water Bay.

The journey to Deep Water Bay was made even more interesting by the beautiful views along the way. The Aberdeen Fishing Village showed a different side of Hong Kong compared to Victoria Harbour. There were rows and rows of traditional fishing boats, and weathered locals who were returning from early-morning fishing sessions. Most of us had never experienced these sights before, so people had their phones out for photo ops galore!

💡 TIP – Once your guests have had a few drinks, break out some icebreaker activities to warm people up before you get to your destination. You can also take some small, scenic detours (just let your boat crew know beforehand!) to get people talking and taking pictures. From there, new friendships will naturally emerge!

 

Dock & Lunch

12:30 PM – We finally made it to Deep Water Bay, just in time to dock and have a delicious Thai lunch!

Upon arriving at our beautiful destination, we docked and enjoyed an amazing Thai lunch, complete with more of the sake, soju, and rice wine we had been sipping on on the way over. The food was a colorful display of dishes ranging from fried noodles to satay skewers that really hit the spot.

💡 TIP – As soon as your boat docks, it’s time to break out the FOOD! By now, everyone is hopefully familiarizing themselves with everyone else, and the alcohol has probably given more than a few a healthy appetite. Try introducing some irresistibly crispy/salty finger foods for easier access (and to encourage people to drink more!), or some fresh fruit to complement any fruity drinks you may have onboard.

 

Relax & Enjoy

1:30 PM – It was finally time for us to jump into the pristine water in our many floats/inflatables, or relax and sunbathe on the boat deck!

After eating until we were about to burst, we were ready to jump in! Some of us wanted to just relax and soak in the sun rays on the deck with our refreshing drinks, while others couldn’t wait to cool off from the heat by diving into the water. We blew up some of the floats/inflatables, which included a giant flamingo, a huge pizza, a large water mat, and several noodles. Then, drinks still in hand, we hopped right in!

💡 TIP – What is the most important part of any junk boat party besides the alcohol? Water activities! Of course, there will always be some people who just want to lounge on the boat deck, but most everyone else will be in the mood to, well, party! So, make sure your guests are fully occupied. This means having drinking games, floats/inflatables, and water sports at the ready. We had a beer pong mat, complete with cups and balls, shot racks, giant floats, and water sports (think jet skis, wake boards, the whole nine yards). These activities are the meat of your event, making this the perfect opportunity to make your party truly memorable! Also, remind your guests to put on sunblock; there’s nothing like a nasty sunburn to sober you up.

 

Journey Back

4:30 PM – After a whole afternoon of soaking in the sun rays, we were satisfied and ready to head back to Central.

By late afternoon, most of us were feeling the after-effects of the alcohol, meaning we were all pretty relaxed and drowsy. The boat owners kindly brought in all of our gear, and we set out on our trip back home.

💡 TIP – Have bottled water at the ready, as your guests will likely now be feeling the effects of both the alcohol and the sun. Remind people to take their last few pictures, and then head out!

 

Finally Home

5:30 PM – We finally made it back. It was a long but awesome day with Yacht Holimood!

💡 TIP – Be sure to thank everyone for coming, and don’t forget to thank your boat crew as well for all of their hard work and patience. Encourage everyone to clean up after themselves, and maybe prepare a small parting gift, even if it’s just your contact info/social media handles to exchange pictures later. Congratulations on a fun day and a successful junk boat party!
