Having missed the Symphony of Lights the first time I came to Hong Kong, I wanted to make sure to catch it the next time I was here. What better way to see it than from a traditional junk boat in the middle of Victoria Harbour? We booked our tickets through klook.com which was easy to buy and made our way to the pier at Tsim Sha Shui (all the way to the right of disembarking from the Star Ferry pier at the Hong Kong Cultural Center). We got there 20 min early to be amongst the first to board. The crew disembarks the cruise before ours before boarding us. Several members of the crew help visitors aboard, as you basically jump from the pier onto the boat (with many helping hands), as there is no bridge or gangplank to get on or off. The crew definitely makes you feel safe as you are told to get onboard at the precise moment the ship is not rocking. We found some seats towards the prow of the boat. A crew member was able to get another chair for us to complete our party of 3. Our ticket also gave us a complimentary beer, glass of wine, or soft drink. The order was taken promptly and delivered quickly. While enjoying the drink, the boat heads over to the pier at Central to pick up more passengers. The views of the Hong Kong skyline are unparalleled on this boat, as you're able to see both views towards Central and towards Kowloon. After picking up passengers from Central, the boat turns around and heads back into Victoria Harbour while waiting for the light show to start (the lights on the building give you a countdown). The light show was cool but I thought the synthetic music was a little cheesy. But getting to be on a beautiful boat with night views of Hong Kong to be an incredible experience that can't be forgotten.

1) Board on Tsim Sha Shui for better selection of seats on the outside deck
2) Trust the crew and your sea legs when they help you board and disembark
3) Save $ and go for the cruise right before or any of the times after the Symphony of Lights

This one-hour cruise is a great way to watch the light show on the buildings of Hong Kong (and a few in Kowloon) while having a drink on a traditional-style red-sailed junk. Towards the end of the cruise the Aqua Luna stopped on the Kowloon side and we took advantage of the chance to explore Nathan Road by night. Pleasant way to see HK from a different angle.

We had an afternoon on a HKIA layover at our disposal, and we were delighted to have chosen Aqua Luna hop on hop off cruise on Victoria Harbour.
The Crew was delightful and the service impeccable. I was greeted by name on boarding and conveyed in the utmost style across the harbour, with complimentary refreshment.
We decided to spend some time having lunch, shopping and making a short MOMA gallery visit at Tsim Tsa Chui. We then 'hopped on' to the hourly service and returned to Central.

Took about 15 minutes of wandering before we found the spot and eventually lined up at the meeting location on the tickets. There was a staff member at the front of the line, but he never came to check us in. I think we could have just walked on for free without having tickets as everyone else didn't seem to have tickets on them or presented any to the staff. The boat looked cool and the ride wasn't too bad, overall a good one!

My Mum and I turned up early at Pier 9 so were at the front of the queue and excited that we would get a good seat for the symphony of lights show. But when the boat arrived lots of people were already on, we headed to the top deck and the only seats left were in the middle of the boat so if we sat down, we had a view of the back of people's heads. During the light show we had to stand to enjoy it properly. Really they should have reduced price tickets if people want to sit in the middle as it's definitely not the same. Having said that, the boat is very nice, the views are great and you get a glass of wine included. I would recommend but my tip would be sit on the lower deck in the comfy seats for the best views, and embark at the Tsim Sha Tsui side as they seem to board 1st.

Starting with the positives, the view of the Hong Kong skyline from the boat is great and the staff were pleasant and helpful. Unfortunately, the light show itself is a bit of a joke. There is supposed to be accompanying music synchronized with the lights, but apparently the boat sound system wasnt working. For the first half of the show everyone was watching in awkward silence and then the music cut in and out with static for the remainder of the show and cruise. Kind of ruined the ambience and experience. Considering the company is charging quite a high price to take the cruise during the light show, a partial refund to the guests and management apology would have been warranted. I would recommend using another company or simply taking the ferry across for the same views at a fraction of the cost.

After all the raving, that folks said - this tour was underwhelming. We set sail at 19:45h, from Kowloon side. I thought, we would get pick of where to sit. But, the boat had come over from Hong Kong Island side, and all (yes, all!) prime seating was taken. I had to sit at the back of the boat. On a seat with no back, which was painful. When moving, it was ok - but once stationary, the smells of diesel were over-powering!! I was on the blue junk, which I believe was Aqua Luna II. Once you get out into Victoria Harbour, the sites were amazing!! At 20h, the Symphony of Lights show starts. The speaker on our junk - was, well, "junk." It kept going out. There were several other boats about, so we could hear some of the music. This tour was not worth the $310HKD!!

We chose this tour to experience Victoria Harbor and the Hong Kong skyline. The boat was reminiscent of classic "Chinese Junks" from movies and lore. Once on board we were treated with blankets and an included refreshing adult beverage. The bustling harbor was navigated expertly; for me the "symphony of lights" was underscored by the overall tour. The skyline: spectacular, the experience remarkable. Give it a shot.

Booking online was a breeze and booking was made for the Symphony of Lights Experience departing from TST.

Finding the departure point was relatively easy, however the signage/meeting point spot could be improved. (Tip #1 - Make sure to get there at least 20 minutes before to get a good spot in line and to "guarantee" a ride on a "red sail" junk boat rather than a "blue and white sail" junk boat).

Boarding the junk was easy with friendly staff willing to help (Tip #2 - Try and get a seat on the top deck with "sleeper seats" for the most comfortable seat).

Once you depart, you take a leisurely trip in the harbor and soon are enjoying the beauty of Hong Kong at night, while sipping on your drink of choice (selection between beer, wine, juice and water).

The Symphony of Lights show soon commenced, however since the junk boat is docked at an angle to the shoreline, you don't get a good view of the light show. Also, after a while during the show, the junk boat changes positions, so you again end up not the best view of the light show. (Tip #3 - You better off watching the Symphony of Lights from dry land - Kowloon promenade offers much better views). Once you're ready to depart the junk boat, the friendly staff are willing to help again.

Overall experiencing a ride on an "old" junk boat was very enjoyable, however the Symphony of Lights from the junk boat is not the greatest. Therefore if you looking to save some cash, you should pick the cruises before or after the Symphony of Lights sailing.

We got on in Central on the Island, so the good seats were already taken by the earlier Kowloon boarders. We were shepparded right up to the front, which in my opinion were the worst seats as the boats front was very high obstructing the view. Still, we could look sideways to see the magnificent skyline on both sides. We were given one glass of wine...it was ok. It was dark. The boat had red lighting aimed at the sails which was beautiful. The buildings were lit up many of which had amazing lighting patterns. After a brief circle, the boat parked facing the Island and remained stagnant whilst the show lasted. The major buildings were pointed out and then we admired the view whilst listening to music. Being in the front our view was not so good. After about half an hour the boat made its way slowly back to Kowloon where passengers disembarked. We were then able to move back and have a comfortable ride back to the Island. It's a quick trip and you do get to see the wonderful fully lit skylines (we were so lucky with a warm, clear, calm night), I felt if the boat moved about a little more, more passengers would have had better views and the music could have been more up tempo. I would recommend the tour.
