Anping-Magong Ferry Resumes Service 安平-馬公麗娜輪復航 白綠牌機車可上船

The Natchan Rera ferry operates direct between Penghu's Magong and Tainan's Anping. This new route started last year but was interrupted by the epidemic. The ferry resumed service on Aug. 31.


With the assistance of the ship's staff, tourists' scooters were transported on the ship one by one, ready to travel to Penghu's Magong. The Natchan Rera ferry resumed service again from Tainan's Anping to Penghu's Magong early on the 31st. The first passengers said the ferry was very convenient.

Tourist: “Cool. Really cool. I think it's a good experience.”

Tourist: “We can go directly from here to Penghu, and not have to go Budai. This is very convenient for Tainan residents.”

The Natchan Rera ferry launched the Anping-Magong route when it resumed its voyage for the second time in April 2021. However, it was suspended again due to the increase in COVID-19 cases. The resumption this time also allowed white and green plate motor vehicles to be checked in as "carry-on luggage."

Kuo Chen-hui, Director, Tourism and Travel Bureau, Tainan City: “Sailing time from Anping to Magong is pretty quick. You can reach Magong safely and smoothly in about two hours.”

Hung Yu-hang, Ferry Operator: “At that time, when we introduced these ships, we hoped to bring these real, foreign tourist ships into Taiwan. They are not like the concept of taking an ordinary, transportation boat.”

At present, the ferry sails every Wednesday and Friday. However, ticket sales were not as expected, due to the expected typhoon this weekend and Anping Port's control restrictions. There is no way to solve the problem of cars boarding the ferry, due to the hinterland issue at Magong Wharf. In the past, Chiayi's Budai and Kaohsiung also had direct ferries to Magong. Now, this new service from Tainan also gives tourists another choice. 

 

 

 

遊客的機車透過輪船的工作人員協助下,一部一部的往輪船上面運,準備隨著遊客到澎湖馬公展開旅遊。31日一早,台南安平開往澎湖馬公的麗娜輪第3度復航,趁著疫情緩和,首波搭船的遊客也直呼方便。

遊客說道:「很酷,真的超酷,我覺得還是不錯的體驗這樣。」

也有遊客說:「從這邊去澎湖不用跑到布袋,這樣對台南人來說很方便。」

麗娜輪去年4月2度復航時開啟安平馬公航線,但卻遇到新冠肺炎疫情升溫停航,這次復航也開放白牌以及綠牌機車以隨身行李託運方式上船。

南市觀旅局長郭貞慧表示:「航行時間,安平到馬公航行的時間也相當的快,大概2個小時就可以平安順利抵達馬公。」業者洪郁航表示,「當時公司引進船舶,也希望把外國這種比較真正的旅遊的客船帶進台灣,不像是一般搭乘交通船的概念。」

目前航班每週三及週五往返,不過今日因受到週末颱風影響以及安平港營運處的管制限制,售票的狀況並不如預期,一早搭船人數僅有上百人。至於汽車搭船問題則因受到馬公碼頭腹地影響沒有辦法解套,因此沒開放汽車上輪船。以往嘉義布袋以及高雄也有輪船往返,現在又多了台南直航馬公,也讓遊客多了一個選擇。
