Jeju Island, perhaps Korea’s most beautiful destination to visit all year round, is a designated UNESCO World Natural Heritage Site. There are several ways to travel to this beautiful island and one of them is by ferry. A trip by ferry beats out flying when considering the fact that many ferries can transport passengers’ vehicles. In addition, the ferry allows tourists to enjoy magnificent views of the ocean along with sunrises and sunsets.

Ferry services to Jeju Island are currently available from multiple points along the southern coast. However, schedules may change depending on circumstances, so it is advised to check for up-to-date information before the trip.

BOARDING PROCEDURE

Passengers are required to carry a valid personal identification in the form of a passport or an alien registration 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-in 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 ticketing booths close 10 minutes before departure, and after the ticketing booths are closed, even passengers with reserved tickets will be unable to pick up their ticket, and will not be allowed to board the ferry.
