Those services previously operated from the nearby pier shown at, moving to this pier when it opened in 1979.

This pier was used until 1988, when the two ferry services moved to temporary piers at Hunghom Bay Center.

Photos that show this Place


A aerial photo from 3 November 1988 indicates the demolition of the 1979 pier. Unfortunately the photo has low resolution only and it's not clear to see, but the high number of boats near the pier supports the demolition.
