Tung Lung Ferry

Those of you visiting Tung Lung island on the ferry from Sai Wan Ho recently may have noticed the following announcement by the ferry boarding point:

tung lung ferry

We spoke with the ferry operator at the weekend and, due to the low revenue generated by operating this service, they’ve decided not to renew their licence when it expires on 27 January 2014.  Although it looks like the licence will be re-tendered by the Transport Department, unless another operator steps in (which would seem unlikely) everyone should note that the standard ferry service to Tung Lung Island from Sai Wan Ho will cease on 27 Jan 2014.

This means that people still wishing to climb on Tung Lung will have to take the Kowloon based service from Sam Ka Tsuen, which does have a shuttle from Sai Wan Ho first if you don’t want to trek over to Kowloon initially.  These times are provided below (copied from the Govt Website so please confirm from time to time here as they may change)
