If you really want to take the boat over to the other side, then you can check at the Yin Hai Marina (along Dong Hai Road, near Mai Dao Island). There's a small fast ferry. Or you go to the far tip of the peninsula in the west side of the old town. Near Tuan Dao area. That's where you can catch a slow big boat over. But better try taking the bus from Zhong Shan Park area and go through the tunnel. More details on that can be found on this website.
