Singapore to Batam ferry operates from the Singapore Cruise Centre (Harbourfront next to Vivo City) and Tanah Merah ferry terminals as well as from Johor Baru in Malayasia. Ferries operate to both Batam and Bintan.

Travellers can take a ferry from Singapore to Harbour Bay, Batam Centre, Sekupang, Waterfront and Nongsa.

Should you wish to take a ferry direct to Nongsa (Nongsapura) , Batam Ferries also operate from Tanah Merah.

The main ferry services between Singapore and Batam are Batamfast, Sindo, Prima, Wavemaster and Pacific ferry.

Our Batam apartment is just a 10 minute ride from the Batam ferry Terminal at Sekupang.

Batam Centre ferry terminal has the most frequent ferry connections to/from Singapore and Johor Baru. Harbour Bay is closest to the main town of Nagoya so is popular with many travellers. Sekupang, is best used for those catching domestic connections to Sumatra and even Jakarta. Waterfront City ferry terminal serves visitors to Harris and Holiday Inn hotels and Nongsapura serves resorts such as Batam View and Turi beach along with Tering Bay and Palm Springs golf courses for those coming over for a round or two.

Time in Batam (Western Indonesia time) is one hour behind Singapore so travellers arrive at the same time they departed in Singapore. Return trips to Singapore from Batam can be booked either when buying the ticket or in Batam. Passengers are strongly advised to make the return booking early especially at public holiday periods when the ferry traffic is very busy. It is not uncommon at these periods for people to be unable to return home because they didn't book in advance. The clocks above show the difference, Batam time is the same as Tanjung Pinang.

The first ferry departs at 06:00 and the last 22:00 from both Batam and Singapore but it is dependant on the service and ferry terminal - See the attached schedules for more information.
