Tour Details

All aboard for a morning cruise on Hong Kong's harbor. Enjoy a comfortable sightseeing atmosphere on a traditional Chinese tour boat as you sail through Hong Kong's bustling Victoria Harbor. A natural harbor, Hong Kong's Victoria Harbor is one of the busiest harbors in the world. Ride throughout the harbour as you see the numerous Chinese junk boats, ferries, cruise ships, and tankers navigate through the water. Admire the gorgeous Hong Kong skyline from a relaxing vantage point. The morning harbor cruise sails throughout Hong Kong's harbor and gives passengers plenty of scenic views of the Hong Kong skyline, Causeway Bay, North Point, and Lei Yue Mun Fishing Village. While on your morning harbor cruise, your guide will show you the International Commerce Center, Hong Kong's tallest building, the award-winning Hong Kong Convention and Exhibition Center, and the former British Royal Naval Base.

Your morning cruise on Hong Kong's harbor concludes with the traditional Noonday Gun firing over the Causeway Bay waterfront. According to the local tradition, in 1860 a senior naval officer became annoyed when employees of Jardine Matheson's main office at East Point fired a gun salute to welcome the company's management officials. Since this practice was only used to salute government officials, the British naval officer ordered employees at Jardine Matheson's to fire a gun every day at noon, for perpetuity. Enjoy a relaxing cruise and get a unique view of Hong Kong's best waterfront sights. Enjoy scenic views of the Hong Kong skyline, Causeway Bay, North Point, and Lei Yue Mun Fishing Village. After cruising through Hong Kong's bustling harbor, watch the firing of the Noonday Gun, a local tradition since 1860.
