HOW DO I TO GET THERE?
Usually getting to the harbor early in the morning is less traffic especially on Saturday or Sunday. Nevertheless, do consider the traffic if you leave far away from the harbor. Traffic can be very uncertain so you have to make sure that you give enough cushion time. You can always take Taxi or Grab or Uber to the harbor. If you have access to the internet, you can use google maps to help to navigate to the location. Some driver might not know where the exact harbor location is at.
It is very rare the speedboat has to be halted or cancelled due to bad weather because of the speedboat size. During bad weather, the departure of the speedboat might be delay. It happens only about 2-3 days in a year. Bad weather, strong wind and high wave, is usually during the monsoon season (December to January). How is Tidung Lagoon Resort during bad season?
