This Month’s Ferry Schedule – April 2017.

This is the ferry schedule for April 2017 for the Bluewater Express service running between Tanjung Gemok and Tioman Island.

For those that don’t know, Tanjung Gemok is a small town north of Mersing. It is about half an hour by car, roughly 30 miles. Driving there is simple. There is a car park, and buses run from Mersing, Kuala Lumpur and Singapore. If you are catching the bus from Kuala Lumpur make sure that the bus goes via Rompin.

Bluewater currently advise their customers to be at the Tanjung Gemok ferry terminal at least half an hour in advance of the schedule when departing.

Tanjung Gemok ferry terminal was built around fifteen years ago and is much more pleasant than Mersing. The layout makes better sense and the toilets are much better. There are a couple of food and drink outlets with a few shops selling T-shirts and the like. There are some small restaurants just outside the compound which serve delicious food!

For the return journey from Salang you are currently advised to be at the jetty at least half an hour before the published time. However, flexi-time is normal practice here, so I recommend you bring a book and some patience! When I come back I normally hang out in one of the restaurants close to the jetty and wait in comfort.

      The ferry from Tanjung Gemok to Tioman is not running during February. It will return in March and I will post the schedule as soon as I get it. Meanwhile there is a ferry service running out of Mersing. I will be posting February’s schedule on Sunday. If you need it before then please go to my contact page and email me. Kind regards Scuba Guru.

  3. Hi,

    may i ask if you know any private charter boat from tanjung gemuk or mersing to tioman island?

    We are planning to go there with 10 adults and 16 kids it would be convenient and safe for the kids to travel in a not crowded ferry.

    Thank for the help in advance

      I don’t I am afraid. All I can suggest is to head to the dock and ask around – it is not unknown!

  4. Hi there, do you have the schedule for September and do you know if there is an ATM?

  6. Can you tell me which Ferry Boat Company we have to take to get to the Island of Tioman on april 23rd, 2017? At what time the
    Ferry Boat is leaving from where to Tioman?

    1. Author

      The ferry company is called Bluewater. They travel to Tioman from two departure point: Mersing and Tanjung Gemok. I can’t tell you the times since the schedule is not published until mid way through the previous month. Have fun!

  7. This is really helpful, since their schedule is nowhere else on the internet! 🙂

    Facing a bit of a dilemma here, because the date we are visiting (22nd Jan), the ferry departs at 4.30 PM, which is kind of late. Do you know if there are private speedboats or chartered ferries (safe ones, of course), who can hired from Mersing to take us to Tioman? Appreciate any advice/numbers, if you have them. And thanks again for shedding some light on the schedule..

      I don’t know of other ferries but there are speed boats. If you can get one to take you out it will be very expensive!! But I don’t know any personally and I have never used one. My advice is to put up with inconvenient ferry times!

  8. Dear,

    We are considering coming to Tioman end of February (most likely Feb 28th) – I know it’s hard to predict weather, but does monsoon already ends end of February, or is it still to expect rough weather at that time?


    1. Author

      The monsoon normally is normally finished by the end of January so you should be okay by the end of February – but no guarantees with the weather!!

      1. Author

        February’s schedule is on the Next Month’s Schedule page but I will drop you an email with it attached right now!

    1. Author

      I don’t have the schedule in front of me but I am pretty much certain that there is a ferry on 11.02.17. You need to go to the page ‘Next Months Ferry Schedule for Mersing to Tioman’ and there it will be. On or around the first of the month I change over to this months’s page. But to save you the trouble I will send you an email with the schedule attached!
