Batam to Anambas FerryAbout halfway through 2016, a new ferry service was added to the incumbent Bintan to Anambas ferry. This new ferry is different in a number of ways from the Bintan to Anambas ferry, but the two operators also have a few similarities.
Travelers with their sights set on an Anambas holiday can compare the two ferry operators on the basis of the information on this page and here.
Fast-ferry to Anambas
First of all, this new Anambas ferry, called BlueSeaJet 1, operates out of the Indonesian island of Batam. Now, Batam lies adjacent to Bintan, but is located closer to Singapore. This means that if your Anambas trip starts in Singapore, your ferry trip to Batam is shorter (by about an hour) than if you take the ferry from Singapore to Bintan.
Incidentally, there are quite a lot more daily ferry crossings between Batam and Singapore, so connection-wise, Batam may pip Bintan when time is of the essence.
The BlueSeaJet 1 vessel is somewhat larger and has a catamaran design and, as such, is a little less prone to the rocking and rolling that occurs when seas are high. That said, some movement is inescapable of course, given that the journey takes us quite a ways off shore.
Journey-time, typically, BlueSeaJet 1 tends to reach its destinations faster, since it travels faster. In fact, BlueSeaJet takes about 7 hours for the full journey to Tarempa, as compared to up to 10 hours for the Bintan to Anambas ferry.
The other difference is that BlueSeaJet 1 offers three separate classes: Economy, Business and VIP. Rates to Tarempa range from US$ 50 to US$ 75 per person, per one-way ticket, depending on the class. Click the Batam to Anambas Ferry website for full ticket price details.
Lastly, this Batam to Anambas ferry departs from Batam every Tuesday, Thursday and Saturday and returns to Batam from Anambas every Wednesday, Friday and Sunday.
NOTE: One thing to always keep in the back of your head when sailing to Anambas, weather-related delays can be common, especially during the monsoon months (November - March). Lastly, booking your tickets in advance is recommended.
