How To Get Here From Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia
Berjaya Air from the OLD Subang airport, not the international (KLIA) or low cost carrier airports (LCCT).
Berjaya Air is a subsidiary of the Berjaya Resorts group, and transports guests to the Berjaya resort on Tioman. The flight is just 40 minutes from KL. The service is also available for those traveling to Tioman but not staying at the resort. They have several Dash 7 aircraft, which are 48-seaters. It looks small, but it's safe, with experienced pilots and friendly cabin crew. By the way, don't be squeamish if at first you don't spot the landing strip. There IS one! We are told the pilots practised landing on postage stamps prior to taking this gig.
Please see their website for schedules as they can chage according to the season. Berjaya website.
All flights land at Tekek airport in Tioman and if you call us before hand we'll be glad to come and pick you up. Otherwise, Tioman Dive Centre is a short ten-minute walk away!
You can get to Mersing from most points of the compass by bus. From KL, take a bus from Bandar Tasik Selatan Bus Terminal; from Johor Bahru - Larkin Bus Terminal; and if you are on the east coast, you can get a bus from most of the main towns (Kuantan, Terenggannu, Kota Baru, Kluang) to Mersing.
On the KL-Mersing route, buses are operated by Transnasional. From KL, they leave Bandar Tasik Selatan Bus
From Mersing, travel time and fare are the same as the KL-Mersing journey.
Once you get to Mersing you will need to catch a ferry to Tioman, details of which are given below. We suggest that you check on ferry times before you plan your bus as ferry times change every day.
Mersing - Tioman - Ferry
Blue Water Express are the main ferry company from Mersing to Tioman and back. They do not depart on a regular basis, but are dependent on tide levels. The journey takes around 2 hours but depends on sea conditions. Tickets are RM 70 return. We are based in TEKEK, which is usually the second or third stop.
You can book tickets online through www.tiomanferry.com. Please be aware that schedules change without warning so give Blue Water Express a call if you want to double-check their schedule: +60 7 7994 811 or +60 7 799 8518. Its a good idea to book a ticket and essential to book if it's a public holiday. Before leaving Mersing you will be asked to pay the RM 5 Marine Park Conservation fee.
Occasionally, other ferry services start up from Mersing, so stay open to options!
Tanjung Gemuk jetty
There are a couple of ferries from Tanjung Gemuk. Blue Water Express are one (please see above for contact information) and there is at least one other. However, we suggest you head over to the jetty there to get up to date information about other companies as these often change. This journey is just between 1.5 - 2 hours.
Let us know what time you will be getting into Tekek and we'll happily organise transport to TDC.
