Spent half a day in Macau, before heading up to China again the next day.

Turbojet TriCats at the Hong Kong Terminal.

FBM Marine TriCat is one of 3 vessel-types used on the HK-Macau route.

Every 15 minutes during the day.

Another one at the pier.

Hai Kun to Jiuzhou in Zhuhai.

Boeing 929 Jetfoil. Turbojet is world's largest operator of this type. Old, but well maintained.

"Taipa" is the newest one, built 1981. Jetfoils have been the workhorses on this route for 30 years.

But I got "Barca", one of two Kværner Fjellstrand Foilcats in fleet.
