A Sunset Cruise at Hong Kong's Victoria Harbour

Sunday, April 12, 2020
When I think about Hong Kong, an image of the beautiful Victoria Harbour immediately comes to mind. It’s no wonder why a Victoria Harbor Cruise is a popular tourist activity in Hong Kong. You get to hop onto a relaxing boat ride with the twinkling city skyline on the backdrop. What an incredible way to top off a tiring day of sightseeing. Luckily for us, Watertours Victoria Harbour Sunset Cruise was included in our Hong Kong Macau iVenture Card Attraction Pass.

We started off the day early and had a fun day at Hong Kong Ocean Park. Afterwards, we found our way to Central Pier No.9 - not without difficulty. We had a hard time finding it, panicking a bit that we won’t make it. We eventually did though and even had some extra time before the cruise departs. The pier did not have any signs that the Watertours Victoria Harbour Cruise was stationed there, no posters, no personnel, nothing. So we were unsure if we had the right location until the boat finally arrived.

The cruise departed at exactly 6:30 pm. You are advised to be there 15 minutes prior. No tickets were given, we only had to present our iVenture Card Electronic Pass to avail the cruise. The boat already had a few passengers who were picked up from Kowloon Public Pier. You can opt to join the cruise at Kowloon, but since our itinerary brought us closer to Central Pier, we decided to hop on from there. You can choose to hop off at either of the Piers too.

Once settled in our chosen seats which overlooked the fantastic Hong Kong view, the bartender started offering drink. Unlimited drinks including Spirits, Cocktails, Wines, Beer, Soft Drinks, Tea or Coffee is offered on-board for free. My alcoholic heart is overjoyed. The bartender is very accommodating so don’t forget to leave him a tip before the cruise is over.

The Watertours Victoria Harbour Cruise sails out to the Eastern Harbour, along Central, Wanchai, Causeway Bay, North Point and Lei Yue Mun Village. It even has a voice over - both in English and Chinese to guide you through the route, providing more information about what you’re seeing. I must admit, I did not listen though but I’m sure it must have been informative. I was too busy either taking photos or ordering drinks (Oooops).

Our camera was not cooperating though. The photos we took fail to give justice to the view our eyes feasted upon. The city lights glistening over the pristine waters, the romantic sunset, the chilly sea breeze blowing through my hair. All of this while I’m enjoying a glass of wine with the most special person in the world. It was some sort of magical and I was more than happy to experience it.

Thank you fellow traveler for this photo. 

The cruise lasted for approximately an hour. We hopped off at Kowloon Pier, just in time to catch the Symphony of Lights and see Hong Kong’s skyline transform yet again into a fantastic light show.
