Cruise Victoria Harbour On An Authentic Chinese Junk
When visiting a new city, I’m always on the lookout for something truly unique to that city and out of the ordinary. Taking a ride on The Dukling Hong Kong Harbour Cruise was indeed something very special the city of Hong Kong had to offer.
The Dukling or also referred to as “The Holy Duck” is one the last original Chinese Junk fishing vessels remaining in the area. With a long history as a fishing boat and home, it now serves its remaining days as a sightseeing vessel in Hong Kong’s beautiful Victoria Harbour.
Dukling Hong Kong Harbour Cruise – Scenic Tours
A typical scenic boat tour on the Dukling takes about 45 minutes around Victoria Harbour. It’s a time to relax, enjoy a beverage and experience the amazing views from the water across to the mainland and Hong Kong’s Island’s spectacular skyline.
The view on the water overlooking the stunning skyscrapers and hillside is definitely worth the ticket alone!
The tours start daily at 2:30 in the afternoon and run continuously into the early evening.
Dukling Special Evening Harbour Cruise Sailings
As a special treat, you can even choose “A Symphony of Lights” sailing in the early evening. This unique boat tour offers a wonderful view from the water of the daily evening multimedia light display show on and across Victoria Harbour.
The light show is definitely a major highlight for anyone visiting Hong Kong for the first time and to see it from the water and especially on the Dukling, is indeed a special treat!
If you’re interested in this daily special evening sailing, then be sure to book your tickets in advance, as to ensure seat availability for the day you’re interested in!
Dukling Cruises For Private Functions
For those individuals or companies wishing to hold a special private function on the Dukling, this can certainly be arranged in advance. What a unique and wonderful opportunity to hold that special private function or business gathering, than on a piece of Asian History as the Dukling Chinese Junk!
Holding a special gathering over the water, enjoying a unique sailing and relishing the spectacular harbour views at the same time, I’m sure is something everyone will remember and talk about as a special memorable experience!
Dukling Harbour Cruise – Location
You have a choice of boarding the Duckling from two convenient seaside locations off Victoria Harbour.
Tsim Sha Tsui Public Pier No. 3
Also known as Kowloon Public Pier, this pick up / drop off location is on the mainland side and just around the corner from the main Clock Tower at water’s edge. It’s also just a few minutes walk around the corner from the Star Ferry Pier.
Central Public Pier No. 9
This pickup up /drop off location is on the Hong Kong Island side, also located next to the Star Ferry Pier and just next to the large HK Observation Wheel attraction.
You have your choice of locations and if you like, you can board at one Pier and exit on the other if you choose to do so.
I highly recommend taking this short cruise on the Dukling Chinese Junk, as one of the remaining pieces of history left for you to experience in the area.
Below, I have listed the company’s official website link for your convenience, where you can access much more detailed information, including online booking for their cruises.
Be sure to check their website often for special event sailing held throughout the year as well!
I’ve also listed the Official Hong Kong Tourism Board link below to their website page for your convenience. It’s filled with excellent information on everything this beautiful City has to offer.
