Ferry ticket office

Vanino – Kholmsk line

You may get a timetable in this website…


Here is ferry ticket office. The only ferry service is to Vanino.


Ticket office do not have timetable except today’s ferry.

I asked the desk  ‘Do you know ferry timetable of tomorrow?’ , They say ‘call SASCO’ and gave me telephone number. This is Russia. I think you do not have to make a reservation.


You do not have to move from ticket office or waiting room, because a bus to the port is coming.


Surprisingly, arriving time of ferry is written this board. Departure time is not strictly decided.

You should ask the desk when the bus to the port departs. (This bus sometimes delay.)


Vanino – Kholmsk line

In this website, SAKHALIN 10 exists. But in reality, Ferry for passenger is only two, SAKHALIN 8 and 9.
