Victoria Harbour Cruises

Harbour cruises are very popular and there is an array of cruises – morning day cruises, night cruises, dinner cruises, pre-dinner night cruises, sunset cruises, Symphony of Lights cruises… you name it, Victoria Harbour has it. As you can tell, the permutations are many and you could scour brochures for details so that you choose one that suits you. If you’re a tad adventurous, we recommend you simply walk down the waterfront, find a pier and wait for a cruiser to pull in. If the price is right, jump right in! Sailing up and down the harbour is an exciting experience. It offers brilliant views of the skyline and a chance to see the city from a very different perspective than a shore-side view.

For the best no-frills experience, we recommend a Star Ferry Harbour Cruise that lasts an hour and circles, well, the harbour. For convenience, there are three departure terminals on both shores. Starting in the afternoon and extending well past sundown, this hour-long cruise is comfortable and run by the same company that operates the 10-minute ferry service between Hong Kong Island and Kowloon.

Here’s a most exquisite option – get up close and intimate with Hong Kong’s heritage by sailing in a traditional boat or sampan. You have three options – charter the Duk Ling or the V, both authentic sampans; or the Aqua Luna, which offers hop-on, hop-off rides as well as 45-minute evening harbour tours at reasonable prices.
