Cruises in Hong Kong IslandEdit This
Hong Kong Island Cruises offer you the ability to see all of Hong Kong as it is not just 1 island but many islands that all have something to offer. You can cruise the islands in a traditional boat or cruiser or really have an adventure on a smaller junk.
Dinner and Night-time Cruises
Many cruises will offer a night-time cruise of the harbor on a traditional Chinese tour boat. You will be able to see the breathtaking views of Hong Kong at night. Then you will make a stop for dinner. Some of the many dinner options include the famous seafood at Lei Yue Mun Seafood village, a dinner on the nearby Lamma Island, or other famous Hong Kong restaurants. These cruises tend to depart at 5 p.m. and last for several hours.
Junk Boats and Sailing Yachts
If you want a truly different experience in the Hong Kong islands you should look into Saffron Cruises. They offer day cruises, night-time cruises, party cruises, event cruises and more. There are many boats to choose from with the most popular being the traditional 3-mast sailing junk, teak junks and cruisers that hold up to 50 people. Enjoy dinner cruises, wine-tasting cruises, Valentine’s Day cruises, jazz cruises and more. You can completely customize your cruise to visit any of the 300 islands.
Taking a junk trip or cruise is a great way to explore the waters of Hong Kong as you will not only go to the more popular islands such as Lamma Island and Sok Kwu Wan but will visit some of the lesser known islands and enjoy being the only person in that spot.
