Getting from the Perhentians to Redang island

Hi All.

I wonder if anyone can let me know the best way to get from the Perhentians to Redang in the peak season? Would it be necessary to go back to the mainland and then take a taxi down the coast and then catch the ferry / speedboat to Redang ...or is it possible to get between the 2 islands by boat? If yes, where do we go to try and arrange that? Any help would be greatly appreciated. Thanks. Kim

You can connecting to Redang Island by direct from Perhentian Island by charted the boat.Its take 1 hour by fast boat. The rates around RM700.00 per way...either can ask other travel agency to arrange by sharing by other people..maybe around RM130- RM150 per person per way..

Just waste time seem you want reach there ,unless you take early boat at 8.00am..reach to kuala besut jetty at 8.45am..then catch bus or taxi to Kuala Terengganu City...take last ferry at 3.00pm..fare is RM120.00 per person for return..just imagine 6 hour for hip on hip off transfer, rather 1 hour...

Hi Kim, once you are in Besar just go to Mama's Place, ask to Aziz, the owner. He will arrange for you the best and cheapest way to get to Redang.

It's possible to catch a snorkeling or diving boat, a local boat, or share a private transfer, just ask him.

You're welcome!

The important thing is to go as soon as possible because there are many people that do this route without fixed date.

Enjoy your trip!
