Ferry to Jeju

Jeju-do, perhaps Korea’s most beautiful destination to visit all year round, is also a designated UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site. There are several ways to travel to this beautiful island and one of them is by ferries! A trip by ferry beats out flying when you consider the fact that many ferries can transport passengers’ vehicles (Not all ferries provide this service so please check in advance). In addition, the ferry allows tourists to enjoy magnificent views of the ocean along with sunrises and sunsets.

A trip on the ferry allows tourists to enjoy magnificent views over ocean along with sunrises and sunsets. On top of these, most ferries can also transport passengers and their vehicles. (Note: Not all ferries can accommodate vehicles. Please check in advance with the ferry company.) However, terms and schedules of the service may change depending on circumstances, thus it is advised to research thoroughly for up-to-date information in advance of your travel plan.

Boarding Procedure

Passengers are required to carry a valid personal identification in the form of a passport, alien registration card or other ID card. As travel to Jeju Island is domestic, check-in procedures are relatively simple, however, travelers are recommended to arrive at the port terminal ahead of their departure time. Walk-on passengers are asked to arrive at the passenger terminal at least 40 minutes prior to departure. Passengers bringing vehicles are asked to arrive at the appropriate departure gate at least 1-2 hours before departure for ticket issuance and boarding. Please note that after the ticketing time is closed, even passengers with reserved tickets will be unable to pick up their ticket, and will not be allowed to board the ferry.
