FERRY SERVICES - OUTLYING ISLANDS 

CHEUNG CHAU, LANTAU (Mui Wo and Discovery Bay), LAMMA (Yung Sheu Wan and Sok Kwu Wan), PENG CHAU, MA WAN (Park Island) and INTER-ISLAND FERRY (for other ferry services see OTHER FERRIES)

 

First Ferry's triple-deck Ordinary Ferry "Xin Guo" turns into Cheung Chau Harbour with Chi Ma Wan peninsula of Lantau Island in the background.


Scheduled ferry services to outlying islands Cheung Chau, Lamma, Lantau, Peng Chau and Ma Wan operate from Central Ferry Piers on Hong Kong Island. Additionally, an inter-island ferry service connects Cheung Chau, Lantau (Chi Ma Wan and Mui Wo) and Peng Chau. Ferry services from Aberdeen also serve Lamma Island and Ma Wan (Park Island) is also served by ferries from Tsuen Wan. About 41,000 islanders in addition to tourists are dependent on these ferry services.

A re-tendering process by the government in 2008 resulted in new operating licences being awarded for the outlying islands ferry services to Cheung Chau, Lantau (Mui Wo), Lamma and Peng Chau for a period of three years from 1st July 2008. The new licences resulted in new operating companies for the Central - Peng Chau route and Central to Lamma (Yung Shue Wan and Sok Kwu Wan) routes. Services to Peng Chau, previously operated by New World First Ferry (NWFF) are now operated by HKKF, whilst services to Lamma are operated by Islands Ferry Company Limited (Yung Shue Wan route) and Winnertex Limited (Sok Kwu Wan route), both these companies being subsidiaries of Hong Kong & Kowloon Ferry Holdings (HKKF). Services to Cheung Chau, Lantau (Mui Wo) and the Inter-Island ferry service continue to be operated by NWFF. In March 2011, following submission of tenders, the Transport Department confirmed three-year licences were awarded to the existing operators of the routes Central - Mui Wo (from 1 April 2011), Central - Cheung Chau, Central - Peng Chau, Central - Yung Shue Wan, Central - Sok Kwu Wan and the Inter-Island service (from 1st July 2011). The government is providing up to HK$120 million of public funds during the licence period to reduce the level of fare increases to the public and assist ferry operators with the cost in maintaining a viable service to these islands.

The government has also announced its intention to carry out a full review of the outlying ferry services with a view to enhancing the long term financial viability of these services and maintaining fare stability. At the time of announcement of the review only the Central - Cheung Chau route is profitable and the government has proposed special helping measure assistance to operators by waiving pier rentals and some other expenses and building an additional tier to each of Central Ferry Piers to enable operators to generate additional income from renting out shops, restaurants and space for exhibitions.

In February 2014 the Transport Department agreed to extend the existing operators licenses for a further three years. Fares rose by about 5% on the Central - Mui Wo route from April 2014 and between about 5% and 6.2% on other routes from July 2014. The government subsidy for the three year period will be HK$190 million, an increase of HK$40 million over the previous three years.

In June 2016 First Ferry became the first public transport operator to provide breastfeeding facilities when it installed a HK$150,000 nursing room on one of its triple-deck ferries serving the outlying islands. The 4.6 metre room can cater for two mothers and is equipped with air-conditioning, sofa, diaper pad, wash basin, hand dryer and emergency bell. The room is situated on the deluxe deck but passengers in ordinary class can use the room by notifying crew members. The company plans to install breastfeeding rooms on three other Ordinary Ferries. However, the Fast Ferries are considered too small to accommodate this facility. First Ferry is also investigating the possibility of installing breastfeeding rooms at piers.

New World First Ferry and HKKF agreed to reduce fares on their outlying islands and inter-islands routes between 2nd July 2016 and 31st December 2016 following substantially lower fuel prices leading to increased profits on these subsidised routes. Reductions for a single trip range from about HK$5.5 to HK$1.4 for adults and HK$1.6 to HK$0.7 for children. 

Fare increases, averaging about 4%, take effect on the Central - Mui Wo route from 1st April 2017 and on the Central - Cheung Chau, Peng Chau, Yung Shue Wan, Sok Kwu Wan routes and the Inter-Island service from 1st July 2017.

In November 2016 the Transport Advisory Committee agreed to support proposals to extend the licence of the six major outlying island ferry routes for three years, including enhanced Special Helping Measures (SHM) for the next licence period from mid-2017 to mid-2020. Under the proposals the upward cap of the SHM subsidy will be increased to HK$410 million in order to maintain the financial viability of the ferry services and alleviate the burden of fare increase on passengers. Committee also confirmed its support for the Government's proposed addition of a new item, to reimburse half of the depreciation expense associated with the introduction of new vessels or improvement of services, facilities or equipment. An average fare increase of about 4% for the six routes will take effect on commencement of the new licence period. The profit-sharing mechanism established during the mid-term review of the current licence period (mid-2014 to mid-2017) will be applicable to the next licence period, where operators will share "windfall profit" with passengers on a 50:50 basis through offering fare concessions. The effectiveness of the new arrangements and consideration of the most effective long-term operating model is to be considered in the next mid-term review in the first half of 2019 and whether that model should also be applicable to the eight other outlying island ferry routes, other than the six major outlying island ferry routes.


Average daily passenger numbers (from last published figures for year ended 2012*) were;

Central - Cheung Chau 26,315 (*2015) 
Central - Yung Shue Wan 8,601
Central - Mui Wo 5,531
Central - Peng Chau 5,618
Peng Chau - Hei Ling Chau 437

Central - Discovery Bay 11,648 (*2016)
Central - Ma Wan 3,376

First Ferry Triple-Deck Ordinary Ferry used on the Cheung Chau service. The upper deck has a "deluxe" class air conditioned cabin and rear sun deck


The service is operated by “First Ferry” (New World First Ferry Services Limited). There are both “Fast Ferry” and “Ordinary Ferry” services. Catamarans used for the Fast Ferry service have a capacity of up to 400, depending on type of boat. “Fast Ferries” are catamarans which reduce the journey time by 20 minutes. These have sealed windows, often with poor visibility. The Ordinary Ferry service uses mainly triple-deck ferries with a capacity of about 1500 although double-deck boats with a smaller capacity (about 600) may be used on some services. The Ordinary Ferry service provides much more of a cruise experience. Passengers are free to move around the ship and all “ordinary” ferries have a “deluxe class” deck with air conditioning, more spacious seating, tables, TV screens and an open outdoor sundeck. Ordinary ferries also have vending machines (operated by Octopus Card only) offering a range of drinks and snacks. Smoking is not allowed on any of the services (including on open decks). On many boats used on the Cheung Chau service the middle deck (ordinary class) of these triple-deck ferries has a back row of stern-facing seats sheltered by a canopy which on days of strong sunshine can be more comfortable then the exposed sun deck in de-luxe class. There are separate Octopus entry turnstiles for Ordinary Class and Deluxe class on entry to the pier. A previous facility to upgrade to Deluxe Class using Octopus Card once on board until 10 minutes after departure was withdrawn in August 2014. The Cheung Chau route is a busy service, used by commuters as well as visitors and at peak times (about 5pm to 9pm) on weekdays the Fast Ferry service can become full. Standing on the Fast Ferry is not allowed and visitors are advised to arrive at the pier turnstiles at least five minutes before departure time if intending to take the Fast Ferry during peak times. Once full, the Fast Ferry departs (without waiting for scheduled departure time). Ferries operate at approximately 30 minute intervals during the daytime alternating between Fast Ferry and Ordinary Ferry until about midnight with additional peak time services. Overnight, there are three Fast Ferry departures from Central and two from Cheung Chau between midnight and 6am.
