Tips to avoid hassles at the harbor

During disembark, do not let a local porter take your bags/luggage unless you have negotiated absolutely what you will pay before he puts his hands on your bags. Best to avoid the service completely if possible as it can be fraught with complications over prices. 

 

Stay safe

The ferries used on the run in some route in Indonesia do not conform to many Internationally recognized safety and operational standards.

It is prudent to keep alert and be aware of your position and situation whilst on board and make yourself aware of the positioning of life preserving equipment.

If inside the main cabin or below decks try to ensure you orient yourself to the layout of the ships decks and emergency exits especially if travelling at night.

You should maintain a clear head and use caution at all times when embarking and disembarking as the decks and ramps can be slippery and the passengers can at times behave in a chaotic manner especially when disembarking.

Be aware that heavy vehicles as well as cars and motorbikes are moving onto and off the ships at the dock and will using the same loading ramp as the passengers. Be careful to keep track of your bags and watch out for pick pockets if in a crowd waiting to board or disembark.
