This was a conversation I had with a girl in Hong Kong on the best directions Ocean Park Hong Kong could be attributed.
There is always reason to mention a tour bus trip to Ocean Park. It's a guarantee that you won't get lost or encounter any troubles.
My beef with tours is adhering to a schedule I want nothing to do with.
The best Budget tour of Ocean Park is with Viator Tours.
I call this tour a "Hands-off" tour. They pick you up at your hotel and drive you to the entrance gate.
During the drive to Ocean Park, they explain to you all the little secrets you need to know like making sure to book the Dolphin Encounter Program at the gate when you enter otherwise you'll not be included.
When you arrive at the entrance gate they give you your pre-paid ticket and then let you loose. After you're done, they drive you back to your hotel.

The Girl and I argued about this.
"It's the cheapest tour in town. They'll just pick us up outside our hotels and bring us to the gates of the 'Main Entrance' to Hong Kong Ocean Park.
They'll give us all the maps and information packs we'll need as well as coupons we can use in Ocean Park. When we are done they then return us to our hotel room. No walking around with Grannies and a Tour Leader."
"I'm trying to find the cheapest way to do absolutely everything," I admitted.
She laughed at me. "You should walk then."
I stared at her. Before my eyes her fat cheeks bloomed and reddened under the cool morning sun. if it wasn't for the 'Never Get Lost Directions Ocean Park Hong Kong', I'd have ditched her ages ago.
"Are you still coming with me?" I asked.
"Of course, I'm coming." She reassured me. "When you travel alone it's nice to meet someone to share it with."
I was a little scared after she said that. Maybe a Stalker?
"Give me the 'Never Get Lost Directions Ocean Park Hong Kong' then." I asked.
"Hong Kong Ocean Park is on the South side of Hong Kong Island."
"That side of Hong Kong Island is not served by anything but the bus," she said, shrugging her shoulders as though it was her fault.
"Where do we get the bus from?" I asked.
"Follow me," she said.
I followed her to the MTR station at Tsim Sha Tsui. It's 2 blocks up from the bottom of Nathan Road in Kowloon.
We took the MTR's Tsuen Wan Line.
'Bloom Girl' (As I called her) stayed close to me in the packed train. She made me feel comfortable and certain. When our eyes met I was sure she had my best interests at heart.
"What's your name?" She asked.
"Houston." I lied.
"Hello, Houston. My name's Lisa and I'll show you the secretive 'Never Get Lost Directions Ocean Park Hong Kong' map," she said. Our hands were almost touching the same part of the steel pole.
We got off the MTR a single stop later at the 'Admiralty' station on Hong Kong Island.
We took 'Exit B' out of the 'Admiralty' station. That took us directly to the Bus station just outside. We got on the Citybus #629 and took off on our way.
The CityBus #629 fares to Hong Kong Ocean Park are:
There are no stops along the way to Ocean Park so it takes no more than 20 to 25 minutes to get there. The ride was especially beautiful on and around the South-side of Hong Kong Island.
There are 2 stops at Hong Kong Ocean Park itself. If you get off on the first stop then you'll be at the 'Tai Shue Wan' entrance in the 'Highlands' area of the Park.
You'll arrive at the 'Main Entrance' to Ocean Park only if you get off the bus at the second stop. But if you get off on the first stop by accident you can always take the free shuttle bus.
The Shuttle Bus is about 59 Meters from the CityBus #629 stop.
Just walk past 'Treasure Palace' to the end of the roundabout or Cul-De-Sac. The Shuttle bus runs ever 15-30 minutes depending on how busy the Park is.
