Boat

To provide passengers with a better lake cruising experience, we recommend all passengers take shuttle boats to visit all of the tourist attractions. The features of the shuttle boats are “on-time departures, fares based on stages, customizable routes and bikes allowed.” Please take advantage of them as you visit Sun Moon Lake.

Route:

The boats will take either the forward reverse routes and moor at the three piers (Shuishe, Ita Thao, and Syuanguang Piers). You may take different boats in the same direction (either forward or reverse direction), but not boats going to different directions as they belong to different boat operators.

Ticket Booth:

Passes can be purchased at public ticket booths at Shuishe or Ita Thao pier, or authorized ticket booths (with shuttle boat sign shown on the booths)

Fare:

The approved fare is NT$100 per stage and NT$300 for the entire lake. Promotional offers from different boat operators are available. Please contact ticket booths for details.

Friendly Reminder:

  1. To protect your rights, please purchase and acquire passes only from ticket booths and not from strangers touting passes.
  2. All passenger boats are regularly or periodically inspected by the Nantou County Government or Port of Taichung, Taiwan International Ports Corp. and they all feature fire rescue equipment.
  3. The captain and at least one assistant are required to be present on board. If they are not present, please do not board the ship and report immediately to the Sun Moon Lake National Scenic Area Administration.
