The Star Ferry is a well run ship (no pun intended). The ferries are dependable, depart on time and take you anywhere you want to go between the mainland and Victoria (including Macau)quickly and smoothly. You can find the fleet at the Kowloonside, but be...More

Good way of seeing the city from the water. Unfortunately a very hazy, windy day so views for photos not so good.

This ferry is unexpectedly cheap and fast. It's cheaper than the bus and will provide you with tremendous views

Convenient and cute way to get around the town and see the harbor at the same time. Very affordable also. We will definitely use the ferries in the future.

We used the star ferry a few times during our visit to Hong Kong. We found the staff were incredible helpful and friendly. It was a quick trip and inexpensive. Well worth using.

Enjoyed the trip on the Star ferry. Only cost a few pounds for both of us. Goes on a regular basis. Lovely view of the bay and the old Hong Kong city. Highly recommended.

Using Star Ferry’s is always a happening. Me and my family really enjoyed it. It’s fast, safe and cheap to travel between Kowloon and Hong Kong Island.

Very cheap, and a great way to cross the river and see the views - iconic, and special, to think of all the people throughout the years who would have travelled this way.

There are ticket counters located on the piers where you can easily purchase the tickets. Alternately, I suggest you use the Octopus card, which is a stored value card that you can buy at any MTR station. You can store money... More

We bought single tickets. They only cost 2.7 Hong Kong dollars which is less than 50 US cents. There is a machine that takes cash on the pier. It is very easy and simple. Ticket machine gives change.
