New World First Ferry Services Limited (Chinese: 新世界第一渡輪服務有限公司) (in short New World First Ferry, First Ferry or NWFF) is a ferry service company in Hong Kong. The company was established in November 1999, when it took over the 8 licensed ferry routes transferred from the Hongkong and Yaumati Ferry.[1] It is jointly owned by Chow Tai Fook Enterprises Limited and NWS Holdings Limited.

When the company commenced its service on the 2000-01-15, it bought 14 ferries and rented 7 hovercraft and catamarans from its predecessor. Since then it introduced 10 fast vessels on Outlying Islands routes to phase out the rented vessels and to improve services.

It operates the following routes:

Its sister company, New World First Ferry Services (Macau) Limited, operates a fast ferry service between Kowloon (China Ferry Terminal in Tsim Sha Tsui) and Macau (Hong Kong-Macau Ferry Pier), which was operated by the Hongkong and Yaumati Ferry until January 2000.
