“Great ferry service to Hong Kong”
Reviewed December 7, 2013

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 of 6, the VIP rooms are great and the tickets are pretty much the same price as First Class and you have a place to keep your luggage with you, otherwise you leave it on the main cabin. We will definitely take the CotaiJet again when going to Macao for a long weekend.

“Great Crossing HK to Macau No WiFi”
Reviewed November 23, 2013

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.

“Cotai Terminal”
Reviewed November 6, 2013

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 line to hopefully board at a reasonable time. There are free return buses provided by the casinos when you arrive in Macau. Well worth the money spent.

“Go first class!”
Reviewed October 29, 2013

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.

“Good if you don't mind the choppy ride”
Reviewed October 19, 2013

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 so much newer, both the exterior as well as the interior of the ferry. And I also like the fact that the seats are assigned so we didn't have to rush to get into the ferry just to get seated together as a family, because I was travelling with two young children.

It took almost an hour after boarding to reach our destination. I found Cotai Jet ships travelled slightly slower but somehow the ride was more choppy. At one time, my 6 YO daughter was coming back to her seat from the restroom and the ferry hit a wave which sent her "flying" and she landed on her bottom! It was a hilarious sight! And no, she wasn't hurt. Thank goodness.

One more thing, I was very impressed by the cleanliness of the restroom because usually restrooms in ferries can be a nightmare, so I was very surprise to find the restroom free from odour and wet floor.
