Tanjung Belungkor Ferry Terminal is a one-stop center for Port, Customs, Immigration, Marine Department, Bunker and Port Shipping Service all in one place. Located at the eastern entrance to the Johor Straits it is the best place to do customs and immigration clearance before continuing cruising into eastern inlands of Johor Bahru.

The most important thing is not to spend any time loitering in the channel separation scheme in the Singapore Strait. The best way to do that is to avoid the CSS altogether.

Sail to a point around XXX/wiki/Tanjung_Belungkor#XXXWorld icon.png XXX [[Tanjung Belungkor#XXX|XXX]] °'N, °'E . You will see that there is a Roro Ferry Terminal just north of that point. You should also see the CSS marked on the chart, it runs westwards on the north side and eastward on the south side. You can avoid the CSS altogether by running between the shoals and the northern lane of the CSS. The CSS at that point will be full of ships anyway, your AIS will go off like a frog in a sock. Note that if you are venturing into Singapore waters you must have an AIS transponder switched on, this is not a requirement if you are remaining entirely in Malaysian waters.

In any case, going on the northern side keeps you in Malaysian waters. Remember you should have the Malaysian flag and the Q flag up at this point.

Pengerang is marked as a town on the Navionics charts, on the south coast of the Johor peninsula, which is the land which by now should be on your starboard side.

Once you are around XXX/wiki/Tanjung_Belungkor#XXXWorld icon.png XXX [[Tanjung Belungkor#XXX|XXX]] (XXX) 1°18.942′N, 104°9.187′E you will diverge away from the CSS, turning slightly north to head to the north side of Pulau Tekong. This is a large and partially reclaimed island that's at the mouth of the Johor Strait, it's marked but not named on the C-MAP chart. Easy to spot, it's big and teardrop shaped.

The Malaysia/Singapore border runs actually between this island and the Belungkor to Pengerang coast and so you need to stay to starboard of the centre line of the strait from that point. Not too close to shore because there are shoals and fishing stakes.

There is a quarantine anchorage marked on the Navionics charts at that point. Ignore that.

Tanjung Belungkor Ferry Terminal is actually the nearest westernmost entry gateway into Singapore.

There is an impressive Roro Ferry pier floating pontoon as a marina and few more smaller tanker for bunker service.

Ferry connectivity to Singapore Changi Ferry Terminal is operated by Limbongan Maju Sdn Bhd on a daily basis.

The near future there are water taxis and bumboats (ferries that carry about 8-12 passengers) running continually between here and Changi Point Ferry Terminal, Singapore.


Tanjung Belungkor is a port of entry/exit for Malaysia. For details see Entrance: Malaysia.
