Hoe kan ik boeken ?
Hi Debrpa, Around IDR 420,000 economy class one way. +/- for 620,000 VIP Not sure about daily schedule, but on early October we took Ambon (Tulehu port) to Banda Neira on Saturday. And returned on Wednesday. On the note: upper deck is always favourites. Open space,smoking area, for who has sensitive smell sensory can be challenging. Possibly getting poured when it rains. Despite of all that, chats with locals always great, snacking and the possibility to capture whale tail or spotting theirs fountain breath are all worthy and priceless. Have a great trip!
