We used the tourist Star ferry to see the skyline of Hong Kong. We did the round trip from Central. Boat was clean, and spacious, and relatively cheap. Would highly recommend

Each time we visit, we include a Star Ferry journey between Kowloon and Hong Kong. This time we a return journey from Kowloon Star Ferry Terminal to Wan Chai Ferry Terminal at night. Although it was quite busy, we still managed to find a seat each.

I suggest purchasing the Octopus Cards when visiting Hong Kong, as the card can be used for payment on Star Ferries and Hong Kong buses, as well as the MRT and the Airport Express. If you purchase the Airport Express Return Ticket with the three-day unlimited travel cards, these cannot be used on Star Ferries and some of the buses.

Costs less than HKD3 per person, lasts about 10 min. Worth taking at night or during the day for scenic views of Hong Kong Island

We combined this with a morning trip to Victoria Peak. After enjoying the vistas from up there, we took the #15 bus down to the central ferry piers. It turned out to be a slow drive down the mountain and through downtown noon-time traffic. At the central piers, it took a little time and walking to find the correct pier for the ferry to Kowloon. We looked for the ticket booth, but turns out you buy a token at a machine for the Star Ferry. It was a short 10 minute ride to Kowloon, and it is impressive seeing the Hong Kong buildings from the water. Sit at the windows for the best views.
