 Johor Bahru - Profile

Location

Johor Bahru (universally known as JB) is located in the centre of Malaysia's southern coast, immediately opposite Singapore to which it is connected by a causeway. The approach to the western side of the causeway is limited to yachts with an air draft of 25m or less.

All yachts can access Johor Bahru from the eastern side of the causeway.

The site of the original Danga Bay marina has now been filled in and the area  absorbed into the huge residential development.

Position 01°27.01'N, 103°46.20'E (causeway)

Clearance

For full details on clearance into and out of Malaysia see Malaysia Formalities.

All yachts requiring clearance here must ensure they fly the Q flag, otherwise they may be fined.

Yachts coming from Sebana and other ports in Malaysia also have to do harbour clearance here.

Be sure to do all clearance at Pengelih. Don't leave until you have seen Jabatan Laut and Customs and Immigration (if you need to).

Pengileh does have a marina, but it's not suitable for a cruising yacht.  Anchoring just outside is tenable, and all the officials are in the same building so clearance is quick and efficient. You then proceed around the east/northeast side of Singapore to Senibong or the anchorage east of the causeway. You will see Singaporean police boats monitoring the border pretty consistently along this 20NM stretch.

Both Puteri Harbour Marina and Senibong Cove Marina can assist with clearance if you don't want to do it yourself, however if you clear in at JB you will have to clear out at JB as well.

Take a taxi into Johor Bahru to the Harbour Master (Jabatan Laut) on the waterfront to the West of the causeway near Danga Bay. They close for lunch until 2pm, but processing is quick. Immigration are on the second floor of The Zon ferry terminal on the East side of the causeway.

Customs are also located at The Zon ferry terminal, but they only want to see vessels for outward clearance and issue of Port Clearance after clearing out with the Harbour Master.

Immigration outward clearance is not required if stopping at further Malaysian ports on the Penninsula. Clearance is required if heading to Sarawak or Sabah on Borneo.

Many nationalities will receive a new entry stamp, which is good for a three months stay in Malaysia, each time they return across the causeway from Singapore or on arrival. However, it's best to do up-to-date research on your own situation first, as the list of permitted nationalities is ever-changing.

See this useful report about clearing in at Pengileh.

Cruisers have reported successfully applying for an Indian Visa at the Johor Bahru Indian Visa Centre.

Last updated June 2017.

Docking

The the Senibong Cove Marina is located on the eastern side of the causway. It was newly opened in June 2014 with 50 berths.

Sebana Cove is also an "east side" stop.  The concern here is depth, not height restrictions.  Most yachts will need at least a half tide to proceed comfortably up the river.

Accessing Johor Bahru and the marinas on the west side of the causeway is only possible by yachts whose height of mast is less than 25 meters from waterline. Sail 13 miles up the western arm of Jahor Straits, past Raffles Marina and under the centre span of the Tuas Bridge, (the "Second-Link" bridge), which has a minimum vertical clearance of 25 meters at HWS. Proceed upstream, staying away from the Singapore coast and keeping close to the Malaysian mainland all the way.

Anchoring
You can easily anchor just east of the Causeway, between the new waterfront KFC and duty-free "The Zon."  Holding is reported to be good and it is convenient for shopping.

There is a boat ramp and small, popular public beach where you can land your dinghy. It is not possible to park your tender at the marina police dock. Do be very wary of leaving your dinghy on the beach however, as dinghy and outboard theft is common. It is recommended so always be in sight of the dinghy.

Yachts used to be able to anchor in 4.0 to 7.0 meters with excellent holding in mud/clay at Lat 01.28.47N and Long.103.43.37E just off Danga Bay Marina for free. However, with the closure of this marina it is unlikely this anchorage is still available.

Marinas

Puteri Harbour Marina is situated 30 minutes away from Johor Bahru on the west side of the causeway. It is rather isolated as it is stuck in the outer reaches of Nusajaya, a planned city that’s under construction and mostly uninhabited. There a hotel complex that backs on to the marina, a shopping mall with a pharmacy, ATM and newsagent but no grocery store yet. There is also a bank and post office in the fancy government buildings near the marina. This marina is also situated across the river from a Singaporean military zone so be aware that gun fire will be heard from time to time. Photo of Puteri Harbour Marina courtesy of SY Totem.

Senibong Cove Marina, new in 2014, is situated 15 minutes by car from Johor Bahru on the east side of the causeway. Cruisers reports are very positive about this marina and its management.

It is possible to make a day visit to Singapore from Senibong Cove marina. It takes between 2 to 3 hours each way. See this report for more details.

Crime

Penang and JB are reported to be the worst areas for crime in Malaysia. Take necessary precautions when going ashore and if cycling, be sure to cover baskets/crates to avoid bags being snatched.

Senibong Cove Marina is a great place to have your boat in Malaysia. Balan and his entire staff go out of their way to help all the yachties. We took several short trips from here and were never worried about leaving the boat. Very reasonable rates. Taxi to nearest mall and supermarket (Aeon) only about US$2 each way. Laundries near Aeon or do it yourself for US$1.50/14kg washing and US$1 dryer.

Dalac Marine would not give us a firm date to haul or a firm price. Others in the yard were waiting weeks for them to work on their boats and would not let owners work on it themself. We did not haul here as felt it would be a total rip-off.

Dalac Marine will no longer haul out cruising yachts unless Dalac is contracted to perform the work. If yacht owners decide to go this way they should still arrange to be on site and supervise 100% of everything all of the time.

we stopped over at Senibong cove marine on our delivery of "Dreamer" Lagoon 560 from Hong Kong to Phuket. We phoned Balan to inform that we will arrive about 0300. We were pleasantly surprised to find that his staff assisted us in berthing at such an hour. We were met with great hospitality and Balan and his staff were a great help to us during our stay at the marina. Thank you again

Posted on behalf of Robert Geier / SY China Dolphin:
I checked into Senibong Cove Marina on arrival to Malaysia, and they were extremely helpful in making my arrival smooth. It is a nice small marina in a new development, in good condition and convenient to Singapore. To clear into Malaysia I first needed to take a taxi to the Harbour Master (Jabatan Laut) on the waterfront to the West of the causeway near Danga Bay. They were closed (for lunch?) until 2pm, but actual processing only took a minute. For immigration I went to the office at the second floor of The Zon ferry terminal on the East side of the causeway. I was also instructed to visit customs at The Zon ferry terminal, but they told me they were not interested in incoming vessels, only outgoing.

Posted on behalf of SY Yindee Plus:
The clearance information for the Johor Straits has changed a little in the last few years. As we understand it, the ports of entry now are Pengileh (east side), Puteri Harbour Marina (west side), and presumably still Johor Bahru itself, although we have been over the causeway several times now and have never seen any yachts at anchor near there. There is a large land reclamation scheme going on in that area and it may not now be possible to anchor or to get ashore (we haven't sailed all the way to the causeway so don't have definite knowledge about it).

A convenience store is now open at the marina -- fresh bread, ice cream, sodas. The on-site bar and restaurant are extremely popular, probably the only viable nightlife in the area. Marina maintenance, management, facilities all excellent. During our 6 month stay the marina has hosted at least 6 special dinners (e.g., Chinese New Years) and yachties BBQs.

Senibong Cove Marina, Malaysia.
We have found Senibong Cove Marina very good, the management is extremely helpful and the security is excellent. It is a new marina within a housing development so no shops on the premises, but a major shopping centre within a 5 minute taxi ride. Just about everything is available within a 10 minutes radius.
The marina provides 2 shuttle services a day.

Nearest marina to Danga Bay is Country Garden Danga Bay. ( www.countrygardendangabay.com.my 1000Rm/monthly include water and electricity. At the begging of 2015 price plan to grow up. Here you have shower, swimming pool, restaurants and nice view. One problem is security, here it is just for decoration. Fisherman comes on pontoon, leave their nets and fishing and going around all night,sitting near the boats, slipping and talking. Security cover up them and don't do anything.

Senibing cove marina is now open and fully functional. They can if you wish do your paperwork for you. The access is quite straight forward and the manager Greg is very helpfull. There is no wifi but Inet access is available at the office. Only disadvantage is the access to local shops. This requres a taxi ride or a 20 min walk.
