THE “STAR” FERRY COMPANY LIMITED  

Plying across the heart of Victoria
Harbour, the ferry service in its early days
charged five cents per person. Though a
little higher now, the fare is still
comparatively inexpensive when
considering other methods of cross-
harbour transportation and provide the
cheapest possible harbour cruise.

From the original four single-deck vessels
propelled by a single coal-fired boiler, the
ferry fleet has evolved to comprise twelve
double-decker diesel-electric vessels.
The two newest, the 750-seat “Golden
Star” and “World Star” accommodate
have an air-conditioned upper deck cabin.

The “Star” Ferry Company Limited
operates the following two routes:

Central – Tsim Sha Tsui
Wan Chai – Tsim Sha Tsui
NEW WORLD FIRST FERRY SERVICES
LIMITED (First Ferry) is jointly owned by
Chow Tai Fook Enterprises Limited and
NWS Holdings Limited ("NWS Holdings").
NWS Holdings Limited, the infrastructure

First Ferry commenced its service in early
2000 and now operates five routes of
outlying and inner harbour ferry services:

Central - Cheung Chau
Central - Mui Wo
Inter Islands (Peng Chau - Lantau -
Cheung Chau)

Upon service commencement in 2000,
First Ferry invested HK$150 million to
acquire 15 vessels and auxiliary assets.
First Ferry further invested over HK$130
million to acquire a new fleet of eight
high-speed catamarans. With the
capacity to comfortably accommodate
200 to 400 passengers, each of the new
double-deck catamaran is capable of
reaching a maximum speed of 26 knots.
The new high-speed catamarans are

Since its establishment in June 1998,
HONG KONG & KOWLOON FERRY Ltd.
(HKKF)
has been dedicated to the
development of ferry transportation and
become one of the leading licensed ferry
companies in Hong Kong . Although its
business at first was limited to the route
between Central and Tsuen Wan, HKKF
innovatively became the first ferry
company to use catamarans within the
waters of Hong Kong. When the Hong
Kong government opened the ferry
market for public bidding to end a
monopoly situation and improve service
quality, HKKF successfully won the
license to operate ferry routes between
Central and Lamma Island.  With the
expansion of rail and bus networks, the
Tsuen Wan route has been cancelled, but
HKKF recently took over the frnachise for
the ferry service between Central and
Peng Chau island.

Thus the HKKF now operates the
following three routes:

Central - Lamma (Yung Shue Wan)
Central - Lamma (Sok Kwu Wan)
