How to Get There
From Mersing to Tioman you can go either by speed boat (max passenger 20) or speed ferry (max passenger 150). The speed boat is reasonably good and gets you there in less than 2 hours. The best part is that there is a speedboat that leaves earlier than the alternative speed ferry.
The speed ferry seat more people and take only marginally longer - perhaps taking 1.5 to 2 hours to the island. These cost RM35/way. When you take either kind of boat, you can ask them to drop you wherever you want on Tioman. The ferry port is just outside the center of Mersing town.
From the JB-Rompin road, take Jalan Abu Bakar straight past the town for about 200 metres and the port will be to your left right after the Mersing Tourist Information Center. It is right next to the R&R Plaza which is the express bus station
