Transiting in Hong Kong without Pre Arrival Registration

Me and my friend are Indian nationals planning to travel from vizag to Macau (transit via HKIA) for holiday on 28th of September 2017 as per following itinerary-

Visakhapatnam to Hong Kong via kl (by Air)- Air Asia

HKIA to Macau (by sea from Skypier) - Cotai Water Jet.
Kindly confirm that we do we require Pre Arrival Registration as we do not plan to enter HK and would only transit through HKIA to Skypier for travelling to Macau.
The return trip is planned for 5th October 2017 as follows -
Macau Ta to HKIA Skypier - Cotai Water Jet
HKIA to vizag via kl - Airasia
Our PAR was unsuccessful without any information as to why since we have both traveled Singapore Malaysia without any issues on same passport. Due to this we are changing our plans to not enter HK but just transit by sea from HKIA to Macau for our 6 night stay.
Our airliner is also not sure about the process and we are unable to get through to HK immigration for confirmation. Below statement is written on immigration site and also airliner website but it is unclear whether sea transit is allowed:
Exceptions: The following categories of Indian nationals can visit Hong Kong without Pre Arrival Registration:

Hi, if you don't enter HK but just transit by air and not leaving the HK airport transit from HK to Macau, you don't need to do the pre arrival registration. You don't need visa either for Macau. You can go there directly by bringing your passport, the return or onward ticket and enough travel fees. Don't worry!
