Ferry service from Kuala Besut to Perhentian Island

Hi, would anyone advise if there is a ferry service (not speed boat) from Kuala Besut (or nearby jetty) to Perhentian Besar Island?

I have been to Perhentian Besar several times on speed boat, however as I am currently in my 5th month pregnancy, would prefer to take a much bigger and stable ferry service.

We planned to stay at Fauna.

Appreciate if I can have the link/URL to the mentioned ferry service.

Thank you very much!

Hi,

You might want to check with Symphony Travel n Tours Sdn Bhd website. They have big fastboats 30 paxs from Tok Bali jetty. As far as i know there are no big ferries similar to the one to Tioman island from the Kuala Besut jetty.

Tok Bali Jetty no longer main jetty to Perhentian Island. Kuala Besut jetty are main jetty now.

Only 2 Big ferry operating by Perhentian Trans and Kuala Besut Connection but depends availability of customer. If passenger are less then 40 pax,you will transfer by speed boat . Please inform to Boatmen ,that you are pregnant ,they might drive slowly .
