There are other privately operated ferry services as well, however this is highly recommended as this becomes reasonable as well as comfortable making it an option suited for both locals as well as tourists. The ferry service is known to be the most reliable one as well. The service starts at 7.30 am leaving Mersing and reaches the destination in about two hours.
