This Month’s Ferry Schedule – August 2018.
This is the ferry schedule for August 2018 for the Bluewater Express service running between Mersing and Tioman Island.
Bluewater currently advise their customers to be at the Mersing ferry terminal one hour in advance of the schedule when departing. There is a small shop on the terminal for cold drinks and snacks. There is a nice restaurant at the entrance called ‘The Port’, and there are several more local food stalls less than fifty meters to the south. You will also find some tourist oriented shops and some offices for island holidays in this area.
For your return journey back from Tioman to Mersing, the time is from the jetty at Tekek. 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 from Salang to the mainland I normally hang out in one of the restaurants close to the jetty and wait in comfort.
Bluewater does tend to follow the schedule, but not slavishly, and they can be flexible and sometimes run unscheduled boats at busy times.
