Passenger ferry services connecting Singapore’s Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal with Desaru Coast Ferry Terminal will start operations from Jul. 7, 2022.

For the uninitiated, Desaru is a coastal resort area in the south-east of Johor in Malaysia.

The inaugural ferry service was announced by Desaru Coast Destination Resort and Desaru Link Ferry Services in a press release on Wednesday (Jun. 22).

Tickets available from Jun. 30

There will be one round-trip ferry service with a 330-passenger capacity in the initial months. It will operate from Thursday to Sunday.

The journey time is approximately 90 minutes per sector.

However, both the frequency of services and the capacity of ferries will scale as demand increases.

Ferry tickets and service schedules will be made available online at Desaru Coast's site and Batam Fast's site on Jun. 30.

Visitors who purchase tickets from Desaru Coast can also look forward to special packages for its hotel stays and golf games. These packages will include return ferry tickets, according to the press release.
