Cotai Water Jet has introduced two new cruises that allow passengers to view some of the city’s landmarks from the water, the company recently announced on its website. 

The Macau Cruise Sightseeing Route, which makes its maiden sailing on 10 August, is a  60-minute cruise departing from the Taipa Ferry Terminal and taking passengers past the Macao Bridge, the Kun Iam statue and Macao Tower before returning to the ferry terminal. 

The second route is the 70-minute Macau Cruise Firework Route, which will only be scheduled when the city holds fireworks displays. 

Starting and ending at the Taipa Ferry Terminal, the tour will offer passengers the chance to view the fireworks against the backdrop of landmarks such as the Macao Science Centre and Ponte Macau.

A single standard class adult ticket costs 200 patacas, while the fare for children is priced at 180 patacas. First class, on the other hand, costs 280 patacas for adults and 250 patacas for children. Those looking for a luxury experience can also book a VIP cabin with 8 seats for 2,240 patacas. 

Tickets for the Macau Cruise Sightseeing Route are now available for purchase via Cotai Water Jet’s website

The new cruises come in the wake of a sightseeing cruise launched late last year by MGM, which offers a 40-minute trip between the piers in Barra and Coloane. 

According to a statement from Cotai Water Jet owner Sands China, cited by Macao Times, the introduction of the two routes is in response to the government’s push for more diversified tourism products in Macao. Earlier this year, officials expressed interest in introducing more types of cruises and water-related tourism activities.
