How to book a junk boat? How can I hire a Chinese Junk boat? How about Yacht Rental?  Any Food And beverage included? WHAT SHOULD I DO?

Here comes a platform that could offer a one-stop boat booking service that does not require you to go out of your way to contact individual boat owners.

All available boat and package information is clearly listed on our website, making the boat booking process quick and easy!

We are here to help you along the way of course, but here is a detailed user guide on how to book a boat, so that you can start browsing today!


1. Search & Find

The first thing you will see on our website’s homepage is our currently ongoing offer and our search engine.

At the very top of the homepage is a bar that is classified into the following categories: Boat Types, Services, Our Tailor-Made Service (Flexbook), Add-Ons, FAQs, Contact Info, etc.

If you are unsure about what type of boat you want to rent, you can select Boat Types. This will drop down a menu for you to choose from.

We currently have 8 types of boats, including luxury yachts, cruisers, and junk boats.

Feel free to browse these boats to choose the right one for you, your party, and your budget.

Alternatively, you can select Services, which will also drop down a menu for you to choose from.

In this category, you can choose the type of occasion that your boat rental will be for.

Among other things, we offer all-inclusive packages, squid/cuttlefish fishing, night cruises, and water sports.

We also service various events, such as weddings, company events, and live music parties.

To jump right into a specific search, simply fill out the sections of our search engine.

You will be asked about your desired location, type of event, date, and number of people.

If you happen to have the code of the vessel you want to rent, you can paste that into the “Yacht Code” section.

Your search will bring you to the following page of search results, where you can browse all relevant and available boats.

You can even apply filters to your search on this page to pull up boats that will allow pets, or have karaoke capabilities, for example!

After applying some filters, sort the order of your search results according to lowest or highest price first, guest rating, or ongoing discounts.

Flexbook

We also offer a tailor-made service called Flexbook, on top of our search engine.

This service provides a customized quotation, complete with all of the best options for you and your event!

All you have to do is fill out a short online questionnaire, which will ask you about your needs and preferences.

After submitting the online form, we will email you a quote specifically for you!

You’ve Searched; Now Let’s Find!

Below is a more detailed look at the possible boat listings that might come up after a search.

You can see each boat’s code, name, rating, and associated icons, as well as multiple pictures from different angles.

Click on the boats you are most interested in, which will open up a new tab for each boat.

On each tab you will find all of the boat’s details, including its measurements, water activities, food menus, amenities, possible piers and bays, prices, and more pictures!

You will also find more general information, such as links to our add-on food and drink packages, our arrangements in case of bad weather, and our cancellation policies.

You can also jump to specific information by selecting the relevant section from this bar at the top of the page.

If the page does not move to the section you selected, it means that the vessel does not have that section.

2. Confirm & Book

Now that you have chosen the best boat package for you, it’s time to confirm all the details, and start the booking process!

The process is as simple as this: select the date you want to depart, the number of guests you want to bring along, the pier of departure (usually also the pier you want to return to), the desired boarding time, water activities, meals, and extras.

These options all depend on the boat package you have chosen.

We currently only accept two types of booking payments (bank transfer and credit card), so please select the correct type for you.

  4. After submitting the online form, please wait for us to verify the reservation. We will usually notify you by email within 24 hours.

Meanwhile, take a look at our add-on packages below.

Catering: We offer delicious menus from around the world, with food ranging from American to Thai. We have even partnered with Kowloong Shangri-La, a five-star hotel here in Hong Kong, to provide three exclusive menus!

Drinks: Many of our boat packages do not include alcoholic beverages, so we offer beer packages, wine packages, and various mixers that you can add on!

Floaties: Have you ever heard of floating beer pong? Well, now you can try it for yourself! Get a $1 floating beer pong mat with any boat reservation! We also have several cute themed floaties, which you can find on our sister company’s website as well!

Once the reservation request has been accepted, you will receive a confirmation email from us, as mentioned before.

Please complete the payment (usually a deposit of 30-50% of the total package price) within 24 hours of receiving this email.

You can pay this deposit by bank transfer (Hang Seng Bank), Visa, Mastercard, UnionPay, Alipay, or cash to our office in Kwun Tong.

After receiving the deposit, we will send you a second confirmation email. This will include instructions on when to pay the remaining balance.

You will need to do so one day to one week before boarding, depending on the boat package.

4. Board & Enjoy

Our customer service team will confirm everything with you a few days before boarding, including the time and place of departure.

On the big day, please arrive at the designated pier at least 15 minutes early for boarding.

Please also bring a copy of the confirmation email (electronic or print), as well as the registrant’s ID card.

Happy Boating!
