Given the connection time required for the airport transfer, sometimes it can actually be quicker to clear immigration into HK, take the Airport Express to Central and then walk/taxi to Sheung Wan and jump on thenext ferry to Macau from there (CotaiJet is every 30 minutes). But direct from the airport will probably just be easier in this case.

isnt the bridge now open, surely easier to get a taxi than schlep to the ferry terminal!
