Transportation between Sandakan and Lapit Jetty (Sukau) ???

Hi All,

My wife and I are trying to arrange travel between Sandakan waterfront (Sheraton) and lappet Jetty, which I assume (for lack of a decent map) is in/around Sukau.

We have to arrive at Lapit Jetty between 12 and 2pm (Wed), and be picked up from Lapit Jetty the next day (Tues) at 9:30am or so -to go back to Sandakan.

This will be in the 3rd week of October.

The main bus from city appears to be leaving too late in the day (12 or 1pm?) -and the return bus appears to leave too early (6:30?) which is when we'd like to do a morning cruise through our lodge.

If anyone can comment on modes of transport, travel times & duration, and especially current prices, then I would be most grateful.

Peace.

Sorry I can't helph Public Transport but I did the trip in June to Bilit, near Sukau, in June with private transport. The road trip is 2 - 3 hours.
