The Star Ferry traces its origins to the “Kowloon Ferry Company” established in 1880. In 1888, the ferry ran every 40 minutes to 1 hour from Pedders Wharf at Central and Kowloon Point (i.e. junction of Canton Road and Salisbury Road nowadays) at Tsim Sha Tsui, except for Mondays and Fridays to enable the ferry's coaling. Established in 1898, the Star Ferry Company Limited acquired all ferries, and derived its name from the ferries which all bore the word "Star".

Over the past century or so, the green and white ferries of the Star Ferry have been shuttling between Hong Kong Island and Kowloon every day. Going onboard a ferry from the Star Ferry Pier in Tsim Sha Tsui (Kowloon Point Ferry Piers at Salisbury Road), Central (Central Pier No. 7) or Wan Chai (Wan Chai Ferry Pier at Convention Avenue), passengers can enjoy the magnificent view of the Victoria Harbour and the picturesque Hong Kong skyline. The ferry crossing was named as one of the "50 Places of a Lifetime".
