Taxi fare

Dear all,

Need your expertise on the taxi fare between Sekupang ferry terminal and Harris Hotel waterfront.

Heard that there is something called port taxi at the terminal , which we pay at their counter ???

Thanks in advance.

Sorry to interrupt, but if you are going free & easy and you booked the hotel and ferry yourself, its more recommended to alight at Waterfront ferry terminal, and request free land transfer from Harris Resort upon arrival.

Cheers.

you can walk but that will take you about 5 hours to reach .

just kidding . well alighting at Sekupang Terminal , there are loads of taxi there and the moment you exit the sliding doors a guy (who will always standby there for hours) will come and ask "taxi?" .

the cost is Rp50.000 - Rp70.000 .

yup.. waterfront is going down!!!! ahhahaa...

I think most likely is that Batamfast sees a much better return by rerouting their trips through harbour bay instead of waterfront =) Damn good business move!

anyway, enjoy!

sekupang actually has a very good terminal area... it was renovated a few months back. But still, it's a bit too quiet i think.
