Beneath the waves
The step to your next adventure
Tioman Island boasts some of the most diverse and healthy coral in peninuslar Malaysia. With more than 15 dive sites located on the west of the island, and a huge variety of fish, from big to small, Tioman Island is a great place to learn to dive or continue your adventure.
The Gateway to Tioman island is the Jetty at Mersing or the Jetty at Tanjung Gemok. While Mersing is a little easier to get to, the ferry schedules are affected by the tide and are not always at the most convenient time. See below for ferry schedules.
The ferry can take 2-3 hours depending where it stops first, it may go straight to Salang, or start at Genting and work its way up. There is no way to know before hand!
The Cataferry is a lot more comfortable and takes an average 1.5hours to reach Salang.

Tickets are 70rm return, + 30rm for marine park fees. The cataferry varies in price, to check the price visit
