$%^^&*(@#@^&*(*&^^  (nasty words undescribe)
well can always go LOB. Blue water sucks!!!
They really use their power to mind control the ministry of tranportation and maritime.
That way tourist and locals will get mad to goverment instead of them.

hmm....somehow I sense that this might be a show of force from bluewater? Its like, look... you shut our ferries down? lets stop everything all together and see what you can do about it. I don't think bluewater has only 4 ferries. haha, maybe I'm wrong la but its just a thought. And I'm wondering, do the ticketing agents and dive operators from mainland know about this letter? Lucky I got this letter from tioman. I called my operator friend who is organizing a trip this weekend and they had no idea. And imagine those people who had paid in advance for their rooms and trips. Its gonna be a hell of a long weekend wey... and people would want answers.  [-(

The ferry is the only reason why I don't go to Tioman. If there's a whaleshark spotted in Tioman and the whaleshark puts a sign saying "I will be lingering around here for another two months with my manta buddies "....I won't even go.

Just because the ferry sucks camel balls. In my entire life, I have only been to Tioman three times. Once with my worthless ex girlfriend, second diving at Eco Divers (had good time) 2009 and third last few weeks ago. All three had ferry frustrations

The moment you walk to the jetty, a broken bench greets you and this broken bench has been there since my first trip which was in 2002.  And the toilet, don't let me get started on the toilet. Two simple toilets which is fine but no one cleans it. So it stinks to high heaven. Perhentian's toilets are manned. So why can't this be done here?

Schedule shows 630am boat but the boat came at 930am...by the time the boat left Mersing it was 11am. By the time we reach Salang, it was already kiamat ...or armageddon.  It's just frustrating.  I cant imagine when it's a long ass holiday.

Last weekend, I went to Tenggol. Same driving duration.
KL - Dungun = 4 hours
KL - Mersing = 4 hours (Only difference is you have to drive through FELDA Nitar here. It's spooky)

Boat
Dungun - Tenggol = 40 minutes
Mersing - Tioman  = 3 hours

Onboard Blue Waters ..... So frustrated

Dungun Jetty. Open space...how happy I looked...

Like the Holocaust, never again with Tioman.....

Bluewater, gemilang close until further notice. I just call an agent from tiomanxlferry.
Currently they only have 2 ferry and they depart mersing to tioman once a day.
Mr Farriq told me ticket on 14th and 15th sept already sold out. He said his hp been ringing non-stop today bcoz of the letter.

Bluewater is doing this because they can. They probably go "Lets see what these divers, tourists will do when we stop the only transportation to Tioman".

What we can do is like what Mohamed Bouazizi did to the Arab countries. What he did led to the Arab Spring and we can replicate this here.

Everybody revolts and there will be changes. This however applies only at the Mersing jetty and the ferry operator. Bluewater Spring!!!

I'm serious....

typical monopoly acting up and screwing the customers who complaint resulting in a knee-jerk reaction by authorities doing check only when there's media attention.

seems like its time for the dive centres and chalets to group together and run their own boats instead of Big Business.

I was supposed to be on the ferry this morning! :cry: Bluewater has really done it this time lah. Holding people to ransom is not the way to go. Thugs. They should be taught a lesson. It was the people who gave them their business. No more to monopoly!

Heheh...betul tu....

I got another friend who says they can take boat from Perhentian Island to  Tioman Island. Because he says from Perhentian also can go to Rawa Island and Rawa Island is nearby Tioman Island. It's true Rawa Island is nearby Tioman Island but I think they are talking about Perhentian's Rawa Island which no one stays and is neat Tokong Laut.

Sampai kiamat ler kalau from Perhentian nak gi Tioman

Some people punya geography is out la......
