Macau TurboJET ferry across to Hong Kong

Here we are, travelling across from Macau to Hong Kong :-) in the Turbojet Ferry. A rather smooth ride, but pretty rocky when it is docked at the jetty!

Did you know these vessels were constructed by The Boeing Company!?
Wikipedia ... TurboJET (Chinese: 噴射飛航) is the brand name for the operations of the Hong Kong-based Shun Tak-China Travel Ship Management Limited, which was established from the joint venture between Shun Tak Holdings Limited and China Travel International Investment Hong Kong Limited in July 1999.
It operates hydrofoil ferry services in southern China, and provides services between Hong Kong, Macau and Shenzhen, all located around the Pearl River Delta in southern China.
The route between Hong Kong and Macau is the busiest and is operating 24 hours a day.
It takes approximately one hour to travel the 60-km journey on TurboJET's high speed vessels.

Time to board the Turbojet ...

Chilling ...

REALLY delicious hotdog bun from 7-Eleven Macau :-) Slurp... enjoyed on the ferry ride across!

We arrived in Hong Kong!

PS - We bought our tickets in advance, as you get a small discount if you do so, and you can board any ferry PRIOR to your ticket-allocated-time, but only if the ferry isn't full.
