The Best Boat Time

The Earlier of you getting into Perhentian, the longer leisure time you could stay inside Perhentian.

So I advise you take earlier boat to Perhentian, especially Pulau Perhentian High Season .

If you take boat at late afternoon,  maybe you will miss the Lunch or snorkeling activity on day 1 itinerary.

You better arrive earlier to avoid jam, especially in Public Holidays,

Depart Perhentian
