Tioman Ferry Schedule for 2018
In view of the likelihood of local Mersing weather and sea state influencing ferry operations on any particular day, ferry departure times from Mersing to Tioman and from Tioman to Mersing tend to be dynamic in nature. This also applies to the frequency of the ferry crossings. In effect, no two days are the same.
The relatively shallow Mersing river mouth and local tidal factors also contribute to the Tioman ferry schedule being not as fixed as most other ferry operations around Malaysia. This is something to keep in mind when traveling between Mersing and Tioman Island.
In fact, even after departure times for a given month have been established and published, usually by the middle of the month prior, amendments may still be required. Furthermore, in the interest of passenger safety, ferry operation suspensions and cancellations are also possible, particularly during the December to February months, i.e. monsoon season.
Ferry schedule copies published on third-party websites may not always be up-to-date. Travelers who book ferry tickets online typically are sent a copy of the ferry schedule along with the ferry booking confirmation email. Depending on the ferry tickets provider, this ferry schedule included should be up-to-date. However, as ferry times are subject to change, travelers are advised to remain up-to-date to any ferry schedule changes. In addition, arriving at Mersing Harbour Centre with plenty of time to spare is recommended
