Transport Suggestions:

How to get to Kuala Besut Transportation is at your own cost to/fro Kuala Besut. Here are some options for you. Be sure to book early as flight prices increases closer to the date.

Car-pooling: If you are driving and want passengers, arrangements can be made after we conclude the pre-trip briefing. Please offer to share travel expenses and driving duties.

Flight: Air Asia / Fire Fly / Malaysia Airlines to Kota Bharu, taxi/van to Kuala Besut?KTM Train: Due to early morning boat transfer, you can’t take this option unless you overnight in Kota Bharu, but you should have enough time to take the overnight train back to Sentral KL. Check KTM’s website for other destinations. ?Bus: Long-distance buses serve Kota Bharu. Check with your nearest bus station.

If you wish to overnight in Kota Bharu before or after Perhentian, there’s a Hotel Politan conveniently located in town on Jalan Doktor, right in front of the taxi terminal and a 2-minute walk to the long distance bus terminal. One of the facilitators will be staying the night before the trip here so you can share a taxi to Kuala Besut instead of hiring one on your own.

Speedboat DeparturesBoat transfer is included in the cost and is about 45-minutes long, and is likely to be bumpy. We will be dropped off at the Arwana jetty, then a short 500m walk to Bayu Dive Lodge where we will stay until June 5, but for students taking the OW-Ecological Diver course, you will stay on until June 7.

K. Besut Jetty: Please arrive at the jetty by 10am on June 2. Boats will depart once filled with passengers. ?Arwana Jetty: Boat(s) pick-up is 4pm from the island on June 5 and June 7. Please plan your onward travel accordingly.[img width=1 height=1][/img]
