Cheap TurboJet Jetfoil and New World First Ferry Tickets

Hong Kong is separated by 65km of sea water from Macau, and currently there are currently 2 companies that operates high-speed jetfoil ferry and catamaran transport service between Hong Kong and Macau. The travel times between Hong Kong and Macau normally takes around 1 hour.

Turbojet operates three types of vessels from the ferry terminal in Macau to Shun Tak Centre in Hong Kong, and vice versa. Economy class fare from Macau to Hong Kong costs HK$142 on weekdays, HK$154 on weekends or public holidays and HK$176 for night services (from 6.15pm to 6.30am). The ferry tickets from Hong Kong to Macau costs HK$4 cheaper. Beside, Turbojet also offers Senior (age 60 or above) and children (age below 12) HK$15 off per ticket. The services are almost 24 hours, except the gap between 4am and 6am.

New World First Ferry operates high speed catamarans between the Macau Ferry Terminal and Tsim Sha Tsui China Ferry Terminal in Hong Kong. Ordinary class ticket fare from Macau to Hong Kong costs HK$140 on weekdays, HK$155 on weekends and public holidays and HK$175 for night sailing (on and after 6pm). Ferry sailing from Hong Kong to Macau costs HK$3 cheaper. New World First Ferry only operates ferry between 7am to midnight, and offers concessionary fare ticket on certain ferry schedule.

However, the listed ferry ticket fares was not what we paid. Once we stepped towards the ferry terminal and immigration building of Macau Ferry Terminal, there was a promoter the handing out name card of a travel agency that sells cheaper ferry tickets to Hong Kong. The travel agent is located on the ground floor of the terminal building, and there are several more tour agents there, so I believe that most if not all of them will sell you the ferry tickets for a discount. So we ended up paying about HK$130 each for the New World First Ferry tickets to Tsim Sha Tsui, Hong Kong.
