Some Lumut and Pangkor tourism groups say tourists would not mind the higher ferry fares to the island, but advise different rates for journeys from the Lumut Jetty and Marina Island Jetty as the latter is a shorter ride and consumes less fuel. – pangkorferry.com pic, July 7, 2022.

THE government should review the increase in ferry ticket prices to Pangkor from the Lumut and Marina Island jetties, which are said to be too drastic an increase for the small resort island. 

Pangkor Island Hotel and Resort Development Association chairman Mohd Zamzuri Suid said a study should be done to see if there are other measures that can be implemented without causing too high a price increase as it is burdensome for middle-class tourists. 

“Pangkor does not have too many tourist activities such as other islands and its duty-free products are also limited. If we look at Langkawi, it has various activities including the cable car, which is worth the high ferry fares that tourists pay high…therefore, this (price hike) needs to be reviewed,” he said when contacted by Bernama. 

It was reported that there was an increase in the price of ferry tickets to Pangkor from the Lumut and Marina Island jetties from last Friday, with prices of a one-way ticket costing RM7 to RM10, and RM14 to RM20 for a two-way adult ticket.

The ticket prices for children were raised from RM2.50 to RM5.50 for a one-way ticket and RM5 to RM11 for a two-way trip, whereas residents of the resort island still enjoy the same price of RM6 per round trip.

Pulau Pangkor Taxi Association chairman Mohammad Apendi Ramli says the fare increase would not be detrimental or affect tourist arrivals. 

“I am confident tourists will still visit this island despite the price increase, however, the fare from the Marina Island Jetty should not be equated with travel from the Lumut Jetty.

“Ticket prices from the Marina Jetty should be lower because it only takes about 10 minutes to travel compared with from the Lumut Jetty, which takes half an hour, and fuel costs are also higher,” he said.

He said that ferry passengers from the Lumut Jetty can enjoy various interesting sights along the way such as fishermen’s houses, which would make tourists happy despite paying higher ticket prices.

Perak Infrastructure, Energy, Water and Public Transport Committee chairman Mohd Zolkafly Harun when contacted said his party would hold a meeting with ferry operators and tourism activists in Pangkor in the near future before further action is taken. 

“I have been planning to hold this meeting for a long time because I understand the operators want to increase the fare, and apart from this, there are complaints from passengers about the ferry schedule.
