Our ticket was upgraded to first class when we were going to Macau. They served complementary drinks and snacks on board (HongKong's famous cookies). If you have the tendency to have motion sickness while traveling on water, ferry services may not work out for you. The trip was a little turbulent because of the strong winds that day. You need...

We purchased first class tickets, which are very reasonable, and the jet was wonderful. We left on-time, the water wasn't too choppy (mostly just while docked in Hong Kong) and we got a drink and snack-box. It would be nice to be able to get a 2nd drink but other than that it was great. If you have a group... More

Great Crossing especially considering sea state- heavy chop - But No WiFi. ... took more than a 1/2 hr. Closer to 1 hr. Comfortable seats like aircraft business class. Associated w/ Cotai Strip Casinos in Macau. There is free bus transport to hotels from Tapi district (not downtown) where ferries arrive.

This is a fast and economical way to travel to Macau. The ferries are spacious and comfortable and you are given a seat number which saves hassling to get a seat. Be wary of traders selling return tickets at a cheaper price as the return trip does not specify a time and you may have to wait in a long... More

Great way to get over to Macau and really quick. This is a very busy service but it's very well organised. Seats in first are very comfortable and the journey over is quite relaxing. The staff are very kind and helpful. We wouldn't hesitate to use this service again.

We were staying in Sheraton Hotel at Cotai Strip so the hotel staff recommended that we take the complimentary shuttle service to Taipa Ferry Terminal for Cotai Jet to our next destination in Hong Kong island. We took Turbo Jet from HK Airport to Macau on our arrival, so comparing the two ferries, I prefer Cotai Jet, because it looked... More

There are a number of ferry services between Hong Kong and Macau and this is one of the better ones. Their ferries are in excellent condition and the trip is quick and efficient. It felt more like being inside an aircraft. What's more is that you land in Taipa terminal which is less crowded than the main one downtown in... More

If all you're bothered about is getting from Kong Kong to Macau (and/or back) then the Cotai service is fine. I travelled outbound on Cotai and return on TurboJet and, to be honest, there's not really that much to choose between them economy class wise. Cotai staff are definitely friendlier and their ferries feel a little better kept. On the... More

The jet itself is very good and 100% better than the Turbojet plus this one is also cheaper. The staff is good and talk to you with a smile. The staff at Turbojet seems like they havent been paid since months. The seats at Cotaijet are much better. The only 2 problems are that they have limited ferrys and second... More

We rode cotai from HK to Macau, the journey was pretty shaky but all in all it was still fairly comfortable. The whole journey took around an hour.
