Owner description: Get out on the water with Island Junks - Hong Kong's premier boat rental and cruise company. Experience HK's fabulous islands and coastline aboard one of our beautiful teak junks - or at higher speed via the latest addition to the fleet, "Ibiza"! Our boats are available for exclusive full-day and evening charter and we also operate fixed format cruises to offshore islands where guests can enjoy a delicious seafood lunch at a local restaurant and experience a side to HK that seems hard to believe exists after the hustle and bustle of the city.

It has taken me quite some time to get this review done, but did not want to not share it. I hired a Junk for a small private group a couple of months ago. The boats are huge, so it is great value for money (even though we splurged and only had 3, felt like we were on a floating palace). The staff were fantastic, seemed to know when you wanted to be left alone and when you needed something. No pushiness or constant babbling. When asked about something they are very knowledgeable and passionate.
We went to Lamma Island which is well worth the trip, gorgeous journey out with great views of Hong Kong and the Island feels like you are world away form the hustle you just left behind. Such a contrast. We went to the restaurant recommended for lunch and were not disappointed - chose our own giant prawns and the food was fresh and delicious.
Cannot recommend this trip enough, should be in the must do of all visitors to HK.

Don't know if you can top this for a day-time activity anywhere.

Staff were first class, so attentive, polite and good humoured. I would recommend anyone who is visiting HK to do this.

Its serious value for money. Great hot food and selection of drinks included for the price.

We recently used Island Junks to host a private cruise for my husband's 50th birthday with 21 of us on board for a night cruise of Victoria Harbour. What a great night it was!!
Throughout the planning process communication with Maghnus was always informative, friendly and timely. The level of detail in emails left no unanswered questions.
The boat itself was wonderful. Much larger than I expected and in very good condition with many areas to spread ourselves out. The atmosphere from the open top deck was so relaxing.
We opted for the Premium Night Menu A and the food was delicious. There was plenty of it and everyone enjoyed their meal. Service was exceptional. The wait staff were very attentive and constantly ensured our glasses were filled.
The boat arrived on time to collect us from the public pier and dropped us back right on time.
We were able to fully appreciate the lights of the Harbour and the lightshow as we cruised up and back over a 4 hour period. Great experience and would highly recommend!

We hired a Junk for a one day trip - it simply was awesome. The boats are very well equipped, starting out in the skyscraper jungle of Aberdeen and ending up in untouched nature of Po Toi. Great service, many thanks!

Decided to rent the Junk for an after wedding party, with family and friends. We loved the crew and service provided by Island Junk, 14 of us in total and we found the Junk so spacious and comfortable. Brought our own music to dance along with. We were lucky with the weather, cruised out to sea and stopped for a couple hours by the recommended Turtle Bay, which was just perfect as it was a nice and quiet small beach, and had it all to ourselves. Had very delicious lunch cooked and served on board with free flow of drinks then , along with some having an easy swim while others rowed the spare boat to shore.
Everyone enjoyed the trip and was very satisfied with it. Would definitely do this again sometime when possible, especially for a getaway from the concrete jungle!
