Good Times goes SAILING ! Join this 2-days-1-night adventure of the Daya Bay in the South China Sea, on Saturday 24 - Sunday 25 July. Hop on a luxurious sailing yacht, and spend the day on the water. Learn the basics of sailing by a foreign certified instructor, enjoy the views of deserted tropical islands, and spend the night on the yacht under a starry sky. The next morning you wake up with a dive in clear water, sail a bit more, and spend the day on a beautiful island beach. Take a speed boat back to the main land and return to Guangzhou with memories of an amazing adventure!
We arrange private coach transport from Guangzhou, enjoy a light lunch, and take you to the marina where we hop on our luxurious sailing yachts. We spend the entire day and night on the yacht, going on an adventure on the South China Sea and its deserted tropical islands. Our foreign coach and sailors teach us the basics of sailing, and you are welcome to participate in the steering, setting the sail, tacking, winching, trimming, and much more. You may also enjoy your time on the deck, taking in the views and having a drink. We also take the time to relax on the sea on a floatie, or go kayaking, SUP'ing, fishing and swimming. After sun set we'll have dinner, drinks, and gaze into the starry night. You may either sleep outside, or on one of the beds indoors.
On the second day, we wake up on the water at sun rise, dive in the water and have breakfast before heading out for a little more sailing. We then leave the sailing yacht and spend the rest of the morning and early afternoon on a beautiful island beach. We relax, swim, eat and drink on the beach, and can use the adjacent restaurant and rest rooms. A speed boat brings us back to the mainland and we head back to Guangzhou by private coach.
