Junk around Hong Kong islands


Does anyone know if it is possible for just 2 people to go on a boat ride/tour around the islands surrounding HK, preferably on a Junk.

All of the posts in this forum on this subject seem a little outdated.

It is not clear what you want.

There are regular ferry services between Hong Kong (Central Pier) and Cheung Chau, Lamma Island, Mui Wo (on Lantau Island). But they don't sound like that's what you are looking for. What did you mean by "around the islands"? Do you know which islands?

Boat rides that are designed for tourist typically tour in the Victoria Harbour, not around the islands. There are some special boat rides to some far out islands such as the Ninepin group.

Other than the Aqua Luna junk which makes daily tourist cruises just around Victoria Harbour (Tsim Sha Tsui, Central, Wan Chai and Hung Hom) and longer sailings to Stanley on Saturdays and Sundays there are no scheduled junk services. There are several junk charter operators but for two people the cost is expensive;

Anything is possible, just apply cash. Sure you can charter a junk all for yourself.

Just as long as you understand that these days all the junks you can hire are motorised, not under sail.
