Bintan to Anambas FerrySo you've decided to go to Anambas by Bintan ferry. Get the details on the ferry trip to both Jemaja and Siantan right here.
The Anambas Archipelago isn't the easiest destination to reach, but actually it's quite feasible once you follow below instructions. Besides, as you will see when you arrive, Anambas is ever so worth the journey. Plus, when traveling anywhere in Indonesia, getting there is half the fun :)
The first thing you need to do if you want to catch the Bintan to Anambas ferry is make your way to Pulau Bintan. If your last port of call is Singapore, then you can catch the ferry to Bintan from Tanah Merah or Harbour Front. Journey time is about two hours.
BintanThe ferry vessel used for the journey from Bintan to Anambas, whilst a little more dilapidated than the Batam to Anambas ferry, offers air-con and scores decent marks comfort-wise, taking about 10 hours, give or take, to reach its destination. Add an hour or so if and when the sea is choppy. Incidentally, there is a stop-over at Letung before it goes on its final hop to Tarempah.
The other thing to note is that the Bintan to Anambas ferry arrives back in Bintan quite late in the late afternoon on its return journey days. Keep this in mind when your onward journey is to Singapore. Whilst Batam has ferries returning to Singapore until evening, Bintan doesn't, typically necessitating an overnight stay in Bintan.
Ticket price for the Bintan to Anambas ferry is US$ 55 per person per one-way leg. A return trip is US$ 110.
One more thing, booking your ferry tickets to Anambas in advance is recommended, since there's just a single crossing per any given day. Also, commuting locals rely on the ferry quite heavily for their to and fro traffic between the islands.
Full details for the ferry to Anambas can be found on the Anambas Ferry website
Cruise to AnambasAlthough not a ferry as such, the Bukit Raya also shuttles passengers from Tanjung Pinang to Anambas and back. Owned by Pelni, the Bukit Raya is actually a cruise ship and routinely takes 1000+ passengers aboard. Its lowest fare, so-called economy class, is US$ 15 but full-on sleeper cabins are available too at a higher rate.
The Bukit Raya is a better choice if you prefer to have a lot of space available to you whilst on the journey, but keep in mind that, at around 15-20 hours, the journey itself is quite a bit longer. Hence the generally lower ticket price, as compared to the faster ferries above.
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 ferry tickets to Anambas in advance is recommended.
