We are a newly formed passenger ferry company which started operations on 24 June 2016, located at Lot 2, Tanjung Gemok Passenger Terminal, Pahang Darul Makmur. Tanjung Gemok Passenger Terminal jetty is located between Endau and Rompin, within the state of Pahang.
Dragon Star Shipping has 2 ferries, namely MV Star Crafts 8 and MV Star Crafts 88. Our ferry cruises at ?speeds of up to 26 knots which means we have the fastest ferry and the journey to Pulau Tioman and Tanjung Gemok only takes 1 hour 30 minutes, and we operate daily from Tanjung Gemok to PulauTioman.
Pulau Tioman can be reached from either Tanjung Gemok jetty (located in Pahang) or Mersing jetty (in Johor) - for some travelers they prefer to depart to Pulau Tioman from Tanjung Gemok jetty since there's none of the tide issues that plagues Mersing jetty. A trip to Pulau Tioman is about 1 hour 30 minutes from Tanjung Gemok and 2 hours from Mersing jetty.
Before travelling, you have to plan your schedule and travel times well because chances are when you get there to buy tickets - there's possibility it has been sold out!. ?That would mean you had to wait again to get another ticket. After buying a ferry ticket, travelers need to pay for marine park fee (Jabatan Taman Laut) and then finally you can wait to board the ferry and enjoy your holidays.
For those who are driving to the jetty, at Tanjung Gemok jetty your car park can be secured for RM12.00per day; whereas for Mersing jetty, it is at RM15.00 for car park fee per day.
