Afternoon transfer to Bunaken

What time is the last public boat from Manado to Bunaken? If my domestic flight arrives in Manado at 14.35 hrs and there is no public boat, how much is a private transfer?

flyingalot, hi

The best idea is to ask your accommodation and follow their guidance. Or simply ask them to arrange this transfer for you.

It turns out the resort charges a lot for a private transfer. No surprise there.

about 600 000 R. get taxi from airport (fixed price) to harbour where the speed boats leave for Bunaken. there are a number of boat captains keen for work.

Thanks. You mean 600,000 to charter a speedboat to Bunaken? What are the sea conditions in November?

Hi flyingalot!

Just wondering whether you went to Bunaken. How easy was it to get a boat from Manado?

I ended up organising it from my resort. It was certainly easy to organise in advance but I would say it was not cheap. I suspect you might be able go to Manado pier and do it yourself and save some money.
