Getting to Tinian by Ferry

"We live in a wonderful world that is full of beauty, charm and adventure. There is no end to the adventures we can have if only we seek them with our eyes open." -- Jawaharal Nehru

Traveling to Tinian by Ferry (or to Saipan from Tinian) is an alternative to flying on Freedom Air. The ferry ride is 50-minutes long. You can sit at the top deck (called the "VIP seats") or the lower deck area (the main area). The ride is smooth on most days depending on the condition of the currents, and some have seen dolphins along the way!

Listed are the current schedules as of October 4, 2007.

A practical itinerary if you are traveling from Saipan for a weekend on Tinian would be to leave Saipan on Friday at 5 p.m. Stay for the weekend and leave after brunch on Sunday at 1 p.m. For example, bring the family and your bikes on the ferry and take advantage of Tinian's long and winding roads! Or come for a relaxing time at the Dynasty -- you can easily find fun for the whole family! Or check out the local restaurants and drinking holes! Whatever you decide to do on Tinian, it will leave a memorable impression.

The schedule may change, and it is advisable to call Tinian Dynasty Hotel & Casino to confirm the arrival and departure times.
