A wild boar snuck into the exclusive Aberdeen Marina Club (AMC) in Wong Chuk Hang, lounging by a waterfall and taking a dip before being escorted out.

“We would like to inform you that this morning at 6am we had a friendly gust visiting the Club,” the AMC wrote in a notice to members Wednesday.

“Unfortunately he did not use the LeaveHomeSafe app and made his way into the Club,” the notice said, adding that the boar spent “some time at the tropical pool” and “went for a swim.”

The boar was guided out about an hour later, and was last seen heading towards Ocean Park’s Water World.

Photos attached to the notice show the boar gazing at its reflection in the pool, and luxuriating atop a waterfall.

Another picture on social media also showed the boar swimming in the pool.

The club said it closed the pool for the morning and increased chemical and pump levels to flush out the pool.

The Aberdeen Marina Club is a private members’ club managed by the Shangri-La Group.
