We consistently maintain the quality of our services and facilities at piers and onboard so as to deliver the most enjoyable sea journey for passengers.

Our Fleet

Owning a fleet with 18 vessels that comprised of five triple-deck ordinary ferries, three double-deck ordinary ferries and four types in total of 10 high-speed catamarans, amounts to around 12,000 carrying capacity, Sun Ferry are committed to providing reliable, safe and excellent ferry services to the passengers. We deploy 18 self-owned vessels and three chartered vessels to operate the ferry service in inner harbour and outlying islands, including North Point-Hung Hom and North Point-Kowloon City, as well as Central-Cheung Chau, Central-Mui Wo and Inter Islands (between Peng Chau, Mui Wo, Chi Ma Wan and Cheung Chau).

Upon service commencement in 2000, Sun Ferry invested HK$150 million to acquire 15 vessels and ancillary facilities. Between 2001 and 2003, we further invested over HK$130 million to acquire a new fleet of eight high-speed catamarans. With the capacity to comfortably accommodate 200 to 400 passengers, each of the new double-deck high-speed catamarans is capable of reaching maximum speed of 24 knots, offering comfortable sea voyages for passengers to enjoy with the latest navigational aids and vessel facilities. In 2019, Sun Ferry acquired another high-speed catamaran with carrying capacity reaches 435 and speed at 27 knots to optimise the service.

Service On Vessel

To enhance passengers’ comfort and convenience, Sun Ferry spares no effort to upgrade the service and facilities on vessels with innovative ideas and solutions.

With breastfeeding on the rise in Hong Kong, we launched the first-ever breastfeeding room on public transport in June 2016 on the triple-deck vessels Xin Guang, offering a cosy and private space for breastfeeding mothers. The initiative was extended to four other triple-deck vessels including “Xin Chao”, “Xin Fei”, “Xin Guo” and “Xin Fa”.

Breastfeeding rooms are featuring caring facilities such as:

  • Air-conditioning
  • Sofa
  • Diaper pad
  • Washing basin
  • Hand dryer
  • Commodity Shelf
  • Alcohol-Free handrub
  • Intercom
  • Emergency bell

Meanwhile, we introduced the designated priority seats in blue coverings for breastfeeding mums on all fast ferries to strengthen the efforts in promoting breastfeeding onboard.

As part of our continued support for the breastfeeding campaign, we were the first Hong Kong public transport company which took part in the “Say Yes to Breastfeeding” campaign initiated by The Hong Kong Committee for UNICEF and supported by the Food and Health Bureau and the Department of Health in late 2016. We hope to collaborate with various organisations in an effort to turn Hong Kong into a more breastfeeding friendly city.

Use of breastfeeding room: 

  1. Passengers regardless of the travel class are welcome to use the breastfeeding room of ordinary ferries by informing the staff at the piers’ Customer and Octopus Services Centre before boarding, or approaching our crewmember during the journey.
