A comfortable and easy way to get to Macau from Kowloon! It's clean and reserved seating too with full air-con, try it!

Listened to the advice from a tour guide and took the day trip on Monday as opposed to a heavily traveled Sunday. No problems getting over on a rainy day at the reasonable cost. However, it would have been nice to know the ferry DEPARTS at another terminal a 15 minute cab ride away. AND, it arrives at a different... More

Took the ferry to Macau without previously booking and had no trouble getting tickets. We got Premium deluxe on recommendation from Trip Advisor. So pleased we did as seats were lovely, had a snack and drinks and it was very comfortable with less people than downstairs. We disembarked first and it was before the rush. We also took another company... More

The easiest way to travel between Hong Kong and Macau is by ferry. Both Cotai Water Jet and Turbo Jet run regular services between the two cities. The majority of Cotai Water Jet's services dock at Taipa Ferry Terminal in Macau, which is closer to the Cotai Strip, although both ferry terminals in Macau have frequent free shuttle buses that...

My family of 5 were on Cotai First Class traveling from Macau Taipa to HongKong Macau Ferry Terminal on 2-Jan 2015 12:00. To our dismay, upon disembarking we realise that my elderly father's luggage was missing as another passenger had taken it by mistake. We were flustered and worried as his medication was in his tagged and personalized luggage. To... More

We traveled from Macau to Hong Kong Airport (Sky Pier One), the ferry ride was very smooth, the bathrooms were clean and seating spacious. Very good staff and service, and at the ferry terminal on receiving end there were airline counters who checked us in straight away. If you take this service from Taipa Ferry terminal then your bags can... More

Tried booking online multiple times with different cards and there was apparently something wrong with merchant. Walked in on day of trip and told them we wanted the ferry at 10am and return ferry at 5.30pm. The guy was in such a rush he provided us return ferry timing stated at 9.30pm and ensured us we could take any ferry... More

If you are booked on the Cotai strip in Macau, this is the best way to go as once you arrive in Macau, it will just take you 15 mins to go to your hotel. The ferry ride is about 1 hr long. Our ride was smooth but if you have motion sickness try to take medicine first before going... More

The ships are all right but the terminal is a disgrace. There is no sufficient staff to clear customs. Not even a toilet in the arrival hall. Departure hall with no facilities. Transportation is a mess with no taxi's in sight and insufficient buses. Queuing for departure is outdoors...

Once we figured out where to buy tickets, it was a little confusing to me, the trip was fine. We had nice seats next to a window and the ride was fairly smooth and I did not see anyone looking like they were going to get sick. Over all the trip was comfortable.
