Return trip

This post is for putting out important information about riding the bumboats. For non regular users of this service, we should be aware of some basic principles of this business.

Bumboat contact info

Bumboat contact info

1) Operating hours.  Even though it says 24hrs, it is really not! The bumboats run from 7am to 4pm. But at 345pm, there is no garantee of service. The bumboat captains may decided to leave terminal early, with the last load for the day. So call ahead to make a reservation, else they will do as they please. On weekends, the last ferry may leave between 4-5, but again, there is no garantee.

2) The ride is S$9 from SG – Pengerang, and RM$16 from Pengerang – SG. There is no terminal fees or immigration fees.

3) Cash transaction only. Visa doesnt work here. No receipts will be given.

4) It is easy to get to Changi Point ferry terminal by public transport. This is a cheap way of getting there. There is no public transport for getting out of Pengerang. If nobody is meeting you there, get ready to deal with Taxi Touts.

I might discover more tricks or things to know about using this ferry service later, which I will add at a later date. Here are pictures of inside the bumboat and from the roof.

Light load, only 5 pax. Last ferry out.
