Auki Ferry

This service operates most days from Honiara Wharf to Auki on the island of Malaita, which is located across the Slot from Honiara. In 2012, the one-way ticket was S$300 and the return fare was S$580. The ferry passes through the Florida Islands channel, which is worth viewing, and there’s a good possibility you’ll see a lot of flying fish if you look out the front or sides of the boat. The catamaran ferry is a former Auckland Harbour ferry and is not intended for ocean travel. This implies that when it’s tough, it’s rough, so prepare accordingly. The boat features lots of comfy seats, air conditioning, and a large flat screen TV that plays movies throughout the trip. You can purchase beverages and snacks on the ferry, but it’s better to do it on the way out from Honiara since supplies run short once the boat returns. There is a restroom.

Boarding begins at 7:30 a.m., with a departure time of 8 a.m. Purchase your ticket from a vehicle parked in the wharf car park outside the jetty gate. It’ll be the one swarmed by people trying to obtain tickets at 7:30 a.m. The boat pauses at Tulagi (9:30 a.m.) on the Florida Islands before departing ten minutes later for Boromole (arr. 10:30), which has a lovely beach and water. It arrives in Auki at 12:30 and departs for Honiara through the same route at 2pm (boarding from 1:30pm). Return to Boromole is at 3:30 p.m., and Tulagi is at 4:30 p.m., before arriving in Honiara at sunset, or about 6 p.m.
