The highly anticipated launch of ferry services between Singapore’s Tanah Merah Ferry Terminal and Desaru Coast Ferry Terminal on 7 July will put the wind in Desaru Coast Destination Resort’s sails.

Travellers will soon be able to conveniently commute between Singapore and Malaysia’s largest integrated destination, without the need for queuing up at each country’s immigration checkpoint.

To kick things off, Batam Fast will operate one round-trip service of a 330-passenger capacity ferry from Thursday to Sunday. It takes around 90 minutes to sail between the two destinations. Demand will then further dictate the frequency and capacity of ferries.

Ferry tickets will be available for booking via desarucoast.com and batamfast.com on 30 June.

In celebration of the launch of its ferry services, Desaru Coast is offering special packages featuring hotel stays, access to its golf courses, admission to Adventure Waterpark, spa treatments and cycling trips that include return ferry tickets. Guests will be able to choose between packages targeted for quick day trips or longer vacations.

“Given the popularity of Desaru Coast and the south-eastern Johor region, we are confident the new international connectivity route will give holidaymakers a rewarding experience,” said Paul R. Gannaway, CEO of Batam Fast.
