Its assistant commanding officer, ASP Rodzi Abu Hassan said the man, identified as Anuar Bota, was found at 6.10pm about one nautical miles from Pulau Rebak.
"The 21-year-old man from Satun, Thailand was believed to have slipped and fallen into the sea without the captain and other crewmen of the Tiger Lines ferry realising it," he told a press conference at Bukit Malut here Sunday.
The ferry was heading to Telaga Harbour here from Tanjung Cincin when the mishap occurred.
Rodzi said the man was not seriously injured and would be handed over to his employer soon.
