So we booked online bus ticket for 2 persons for Friday night including ferry (Mersing) Saturday morning to Genting (Tioman) 15th September 2018. Because the bus arrived way too late and we were unable to catch the ferry in Mersing, we had take another ferry...More
Instruction manual for Bluewater Express. We brought our tickets online no problem ( were informed about schedule change by email) at Mersing go to the Bluewater express office before the ferry terminal it is sign posted, go to the counter directed by the ticket, this...More
The organisation is a nightmare including the need to do 4 different queues of you're lucky. This is what we experience:
1. Buy the ticket in counter by the bus stop
2. Validation of ticket in jetty counter W2
3. Passport validation in W1
We bought to ferry return tickets from Mersing to Tioman. The first leg of the trip was uneventful yet very unpleasant comfortwise. The return one turned out to be one of those "fiascos" you wiahed you had not gine through: the clerk in Mersing had...More
When returning from Tioman, you need to go to jetty by 1 hour before departure time.

My family and I planned for a trip to Tioman and we went online to purchase tickets. There were two ferry services and we had to take BlueWater Express due to timing. The other ferry services, CataFerry (looked much professional) did not have the timing...More

Very surprised with a lot negative comments on this company. Personally, the boat service is good. Despite I went during festive session, boat came on time for both trips and the staffs on the boat are friendly and giving helping hand to those families with...More
If you want to go to Tioman from Mersing, then you have to deal with Bluewater, Yep, getting your tickets and leaving is a bit chaotic, but the ride over is not too bad. Have a coffee of coke, sit back and relax.

I believe it does. We are traveling from Tanjong Gemok to Tioman in a couple of weeks using Cataferry. Bit more expensive but better service well recommended.
I won't use Bluewater again, please see my review on them.
I think you can charter a private boat which is going to be expensive. The unpredictability of the ferry schedule not only cost me a night's accommadation in Mersing but also loss of time at the resort. When I was at Tioman... More
I think you can charter a private boat which is going to be expensive. The unpredictability of the ferry schedule not only cost me a night's accommadation in Mersing but also loss of time at the resort. When I was at Tioman there was only one ferry that day which was 4.30pm. This means hanging around the terminal all day. On the way back the ferry left Tioman at 7am. This meant checking out at 6am, going from the resort to the Genting pick -up point by speed boat to meet the ferry. Aside from the ferry schedule the staff there were unhelpful, un-professional lay abouts.NEVER AGAIN.
