As a coastal city, Hong Kong regularly operates ferry routes that connect Hong Kong Island, Kowloon and the Outlying Islands.
Ferries between Hong Kong Island and Kowloon
The Star Ferry is a charming vessel that transports passengers between Central as well as Wan Chai on Hong Kong Island and Tsim Sha Tsui, Kowloon. It offers views of both sides of the harbour, and is as much a mode of transport as it is an attraction. There are other cross-harbour ferries between different points on Hong Kong Island and Kowloon — see details here.
Ferries between Hong Kong Island and Outlying Islands
Ferries operating from the Central Ferry Piers on Hong Kong Island provide services to the main Outlying Islands of Peng Chau, Cheung Chau, Lamma Island and Lantau Island, including Discovery Bay. Two types of ferries operate along most routes: standard ferries and the slightly more expensive fast ferries.
