Taking the Marina Island to Pangkor Ferry is an alternative way to reach Pangkor and faster than the 'old' Lumut to Pangkor Ferry.
Marina Island is a private reclaimed island and home to the Marina Island Pangkor Resort and Hotel. The island is joined to the mainland by a bridge so travellers looking to reach Pangkor Island can drive to Marina Island, leave the car there and catch a ferry.
The ferry journey from Marina Island takes just 10 minutes, compared to the Lumut-Pangkor ferry which takes 30-45 minutes, depending on sea conditions.
From 10 November 2020 onwards there are just six trips per day in each direction:
Outbound Trip from Marina to Pangkor
Return Trip from Pangkor to Marina
Ticket Counter closes 15 minutes before departure time.
More frequent services may be resumed after Covid-19 movement controls have been rescinded.
The price for a return ticket is as follows:
These prices are currently the same as the Lumut-Pangkor ferry.
You can buy tickets online here.
Which ferry is better? Depends on your point of view. If you are in a hurry or don't enjoy long ferry journeys then the Marina Island option may be better. Personally I like ferry rides so I would probably go for the slower, more leisurely Lumut to Pangkor ferry.
Ample parking is available at the jetty.
