Junks aren’t just for daytime, kids – they’re a great way to pass a few hours at night too. More affordable (but also shorter in length) than their peak-season, all-day cousins, night junks are perfect for birthdays, anniversaries or any special occasion really. We rounded up some of the best places to book a night junk boat in Hong Kong. They range from the super high-end to the budget, so there’s something in every price range. Load one up with your friends and your booze, and you’re good to go for about four hours – no sunscreen required. Just bring a sweater, it can get a little chilly out there on the open seas.
The Aqua Luna
The Aqua Luna is the classic Hong Kong junk experience. The traditional junk boat, one of the last in the city with the iconic red sails, is an elegant way to take in the skyline. The beautiful, traditionally-made wooden boat is available for private charter with flexible times. You can book her from as little as two hours to an entire day, and can fit up to 80 guests. For private events, we recommend going through their dedicated events team, who will help pick a destination and buffet-style menu. If you’re just looking for a quick night out, you can book tickets on their nightly Evening Harbour Cruise, a 45-minute ride around Victoria Harbour.
Hong Kong Yachting
Chose from 10 beautiful junks, all of which will pick you up right at Central piers for the evening. They can accommodate groups from 30-55 people, and you have the option to book the whole package (complete with food and drink) from them directly, or just the boat. Going BYOB is an easy way to save a little money, but the hassle factor is higher. Either way, Hong Kong Yachting spoils you for choice, and we love how easy to navigate their site is!
Hong Kong Yachting
Lazydays make for lazy nights on one of these beautiful night junks. Another customisable option, you can choose the perfect boat for your party out of their six tempting yachts. Fancy a night of karaoke? They got you covered. How about an outdoor bar? Yup, they’ve got that too. Boats can be rented by themselves, or you can go for one of their delicious all-inclusive packages. Cheers to that!
Junks.HK is one of the classic booking sights, beloved for their easy-to-use website and range of great options. It’s kind of like online dating for junks, in that you can select exactly what you want and presto! A list of suitable candidates appears. Simply select the date that you want, then choose your extras: catering, drinks packages and anything else you can think of. Then book through their secure site, and make sure to get yourself down to the piers in time for your hassle-free night junk.
Choose Vikings Charters for no frills, affordable night junks. They’re prices range from HK$3,500 to HK$12,000, making them the most budget friendly options in Hong Kong. You can choose from three different types of boats, including basic wooden ones, mid-level GRP Pleasure Cruisers and the Deluxe Pleasure Crafts. They have ten different food-packages available as well.
Whoever you choose, we hope you have a great time on the water and come back to Lan Kwai Fong to keep the party going!
