Getting Here: transfer to and from our island is via Merantau, our custom built speedboat launched in 2018

We depart Sorong at about 09:00 on scheduled transfer dates, arriving at Misool about 4 hours later.

 We recommend our guests arrive in Sorong with Garuda Indonesia GA682 from Jakarta, arriving at about 06:35 in Sorong. Our team will meet you at the airport and take you across the street to the Misool Filling Station, where you’ll be served a light breakfast. This is a good place to change into a pair of shorts, a tee-shirt, and some flip flops!

While you’re having breakfast, our ground handling team will load your checked luggage onto our boat. You’ll then be taken to the harbour, about 10 minutes away. You’ll be welcomed onboard Merantau, our private transfer boat which was launched in December 2018.

Merantau’s cabin is roomy and open, with comfortable reclining seats for 45 passengers. There’s also plenty of outdoor seating available, both shaded and open to the sun. Relax and enjoy the 4 hour voyage to the furthest reaches of Raja Ampat.


Unless you are combining your stay with a local live-aboard, one night off-gassing in Sorong after your stay at Misool will be necessary. Your hotel night in Sorong after your 7, 9, or 12 night stay with us is included in the package price - in other words, night 8, 10, or 13 of your journey is on us. We'll arrange your room as well as all breakfast, baggage services, and transfers to Sorong's airport in time for your flight the following morning. Please visit our FAQ page for more information.
