Mentawai Ferries Boats« on: April 05 2006 03:04:00 »
I've been seaching the internet for information regarding Ferries Boats in the Mentawais and haven't found nothing....
I wounder if anyone knows (and had been there would be kind to help me) if there are ferries leaving from Siberut (Muara Siberut) to Nias (Gunung Sitioli)? How often a week? And how much does it costs?
Regards 2 all

well... i know it totally late responce, but... better late than nothing though?!
'till now, no website for ferries boat to mentawai. there are 3 night ferries; sumber rezeki leaving every monday night to siberut, beriloga sunday night to sipora and wednesday to siberut, ambu-ambu tuesday night to sipora and saturday to siberut. fast ferries, mentawai express leaving every monday and thursday morning. ticket price 100 thousand rupiah for nite ferries and 85 thousand rupiah for express one. ambu-ambu more cheaper, 63 thousand rupiah, air cond rooms and metal ferries.
so far no ferries from siberut to nias. from padang you can catch bus to sibolga then by ferri to gunung sitoli.
