About this Event

This is a one-day Project AWARE specialty program. We’ll be learning the Project AWARE program on a boat and then explore the unique Nine Pin Island and explore the geological park in Hong Kong.

The Project AWARE Specialty course is an introduction to Project AWARE as a global movement for ocean protection.. Through interactive discussions, students will learn how you can make a difference for ocean protection every time they dive, swim or travel. A dry, ‘fins off’ course, this specialty is ideal for students alike to gain insight into how decisions above and below the surface impact our water planet. Students will receive a certificate after they attend the course.

The Ninepin Islands is a group of rocky outcrops at the edge of the South China Sea. Battered by relentless waves and winds, wonderful landforms have formed. It is also the place where the hexagonal rock columns are at their largest, with diameters of over two meters. We’ll learn about the geology of these rocks.

The boat trip, through attractive scenery and then open seas to the islands, first visits the North Nine Pin Island to see and walk over the beautifully developed hexagonal columns, some of which have toppled over above a large rock slide. The second stop is on the South Nine Pin Island at a sea arch developed along a fault. The trip also includes a circumnavigation of the islands to view the spectacular cliff scenery.

Following the circumnavigation of the Nine Pins, the trip goes to the Bluff Island area. Subject to timing, the boat may also stop at either Bluff Island or High Island, where there is an interesting hike to visit similar fine hexagonal columns and a sea cave, plus a visit to a local island village with a temple. Students will also be able to snorkel and enjoy the spectacular underwater views.

Learning outcomes

• Students will learn the role Project AWARE Foundation plays in protecting aquatic ecosystems worldwide.

• Students will learn the importance, and the interdependent nature, of aquatic ecosystems.

• Students will learn the pertinent issues concerning the environmental status of underwater environments, such as pollution, fisheries and coastal zone management.

• Students will learn the information needed to take specific actions to help conserve underwater environments.

• Students will learn about the geology and geography of the Hong Kong UNESCO Geological park

這是一個為期一天的PADI 珊瑚保育課程。我們將在船上學習PADI 珊瑚保育課程,然後探索獨特的果洲群島(英文:Ninepin Group)及地質公園。

作為全球海洋保護運動之一,PADI 珊瑚保育課程通過互動式討論,教導學生如何在每次潛水、游泳或旅行時為海洋保護做出改變。學生能了解地上或水下的決策如何影響海洋生態。學生參加課程後將收到珊瑚保育課程證書。


我們首先參觀北果洲群島,欣賞壯麗的角形柱,其方。 第二站在南果洲群島,在一個海拱沿斷層發展。 行程還包括環島航行,欣賞壯觀的懸崖景色。

在果洲群 環游之後,行程將前往甕缸洲 。 根據時間安排,船還可以停靠在甕缸洲或糧船灣,在那裡有一個有趣的徒步旅行,參觀精細六邊形柱和海洞,再加上參觀當地島嶼村莊與寺廟。學生還可以浮潛,欣賞壯觀的水下景色。


• 學生將學習知道珊瑚生態保育課在保護全球海洋生態系統方面的作用

• 學生將學習海洋生態系統的重要性和相互依存的性質

• 學生將學習有關海洋環境狀況的相關問題,如污染、漁業和海岸帶管理

• 學生將學習如果保護海洋生態

• 學生將瞭解香港聯合國教科文組織地質公園的地質和地理 知識
