How about Zarubino to Shocko?

In about 40 days I will be in Vladivostok/Zarubino. As far as I understand the ferry between Zarubino (Rus) and Shocko(Kor) is working now and taking passangers and vehicles on board. I am 1 person on 1 motorcycle.
- Can anybody confirm that I will be able to get on the ferry in Zarubino with my motorcycle and get off in Shocko?
- I understand the price is 250$/moto and 250$/person, thus being 500$ for my bike and me. Is that correct?
- Does anybody have the GPS coordinates of the ferry in Zarubino? Is it hard to find?
- Which are the days of the week when the ferry runs from Zarubino to Shocko? Should I take it from Vlad or is Zarubino better?
- Any other advices, suggestions are more than welcomed.
Thanks a lot and regards

Dong Chun for trucks


I'm scoping out a tour through Siberia and around the Eastern Sea, and I'm trying to get information on this Russian Korean ferry crossing...
It might be easier asking one of yous what's actually there... can anyone tell me if they can fit trucks and buses on this boat and how much it all costs? And whether it sails right through the winter?
Any help much appreciated.

Hi Maximondo

We will also be crossing from Korea to Russia around the same time. Might see you on the ferry. We drive a 4 wheel drive with NSW plates.

I realize this is an old thread. But, didn't want to start a new one...

Had some communication with Wendy Choi on Feb.07, 2011. She indicated, after talking to the Ferry office herself, that the Dong Chun Ferry is again out of commission with no definite resume of operation date.

Thought y'all might want to know...
