Batam - Where's the Port?

We are clearing out of Indonesia from the island of Batam.

OK so, like,.... I can find the island.... but which port????????

Does someone know the waypoint for the Customs dock?

I feel like I am about to go sailing in circles around this lump of rock.... I also feel like a bit of a dill for asking.

No hints on where I think it could be..... and if any goose gives me some strange L&L for the local looney farm, well....... I won't forget!


I also understand people have cleared out at Kumai and its nearby airport... that would be even better...

Mark

From WikiTravel

All Batam ports, namely Harbour Bay (Jodoh), Batam Centre, Nongsapura, Sekupang and Waterfront City (Teluk Senimba) are visa-free and visa-on-arrival ports of entry.

Thanks guys

I'm just abdicating my responsabilities and from now on you can navigate us around the world!

The only bit I found about Nongsa Point Marina was that it was destroyed in a storm in 2006....

LOL

Thanks folks

Not doing much swimming off the boat there I guess. Yuck! Looks like you can walk ashore on the junk in the water.

It's been rebuilt and is quite nice. Take a good look at the port starboard marks for entry and I suggest you enter during the day. There are big rocks on each side of the entrance.

It isn't anything like that craphole you are at in Bali. Jeez what a dump.

As a resident in Norway, albeit only temporary, as soon as I bring a boat into the country I am charged 25% VAT.

Sorry MarkJ; thread drift alert.
Perhaps that is why the Viking settled in the UK, it was cheaper than returning home

Checking out of Indonesia

Mark
At the end of the Sail Indonesia Rally last year we checked out at Nongsa Point Marina. Actually the marina staff did it for us for a small fee. Our boat's position at the marina dock was 01'11.792N and 104'05.830E. Very nice marina with all facilities. We stayed a week. From there it is only 12 or so miles across the very busy straight to Singapore.
