NOTE: Advance bookings made for Tanjung Gemok may need to be amended to depart by Mersing ferry, rather than Tanjung Gemok. This is due to recent changes in Pahang maritime regulations, requiring a reduction in seats in the Tanjung Gemok vessel. If you do not want your Tanjung Gemok booking to be amended to Mersing, we recommend you don't place your booking with the Tanjung Gemok ferry.
Tanjung Gemok is an alternative ferry terminal from where you can get on a ferry to Tioman. Tanjung Gemok is located near Rompin, about 20-30 minutes north of Mersing.
Some travelers prefer departing to Tioman from here, because there are fewer tidal issues of the kind that at times plague Mersing. The downsides of Tanjung Gemok however, is that it's a longer drive than Mersing, more remote, and not quite as accessible by public transport as Mersing.
NOTE: You can now also book your bus or taxi to Mersing on this website, as well as your Tioman hotel or resort. Good to know.

Driving to Tanjung Gemok
If you are driving from KL, instead of exiting the North-South Expressway at Ayer Hitam and following the Kluang route, exit Seremban instead, then follow Kuala Pilah, Muadzam Shah and then drive along the coastal road.
If you're driving from Singapore, just keep going towards Mersing until you see Tanjung Gemok. The drive from Singapore to Tanjung Gemok is generally slightly longer than to Mersing. But the upside is that the ferry crossing from Tanjung Gemok to Tioman can be a little shorter in duration, although the difference isn't that big.

*Occasionally, there is only a single crossing from Tanjung Gemok to Tioman and from Tioman to Tanjung Gemok. On these days, the result is that the Tanjung Gemok ferry tends to be fully booked quite quickly. In the event the Tanjung Gemok ferry is declared fully booked immediately after your booking has been completed, your ferry departure terminal location changes to Mersing. In these cases, naturally, you will receive notification of this amendment.
