Star Ferry 天星小輪
Star Ferry Co. Ltd. was founded in 1888 as the Kowloon Ferry Company by a Parsee merchant, Dorabjee Naorojee Mithaiwala, and adopted its present name in 1898. The name “Star Ferry” was inspired by Mithaiwala’s love of a poem “Crossing the Bar”, in which the first line reads “Sunset and evening Star, And one clear call for me!”
A fleet of 12 ferries provides an inexpensive harbour crossing to over 70,000 passengers a day. The original steamboat ride was around 40 minutes. Nowadays, a modern vessel crossing a much narrower harbour takes only 9 minutes.
The Star Ferry crossing has been rated as one of the “50 places of a lifetime” by National Geographic.
Local Ferry • Big Star, Big Success. Small can be good!
天星小輪於1888年由一位伊朗商人Dorabjee N. Mithaiwala成立，最初名為九龍渡海小輪公司，至1898年改為現時名字。 該公司的名字的靈感來自Mithaiwala所愛的一首詩「Crossing the Bar」，其中第一句歌詞是「日落黃昏，長夜天星。那給我的呼喚，清晰如許！」
