    Wakai to Kedidiri free tranport to/from the place where you stay (but ask how much it would be, if you don`t stay there, they usualy wait in Wakai for incoming boats)

    The website of Waleakodi Sifa cottage seems to have a reliable transportation page (pasing by Malenge it looked nice and people i have meet liked it there)

    Getting to the Togian Islands

    It is not easy getting to the Togians from either the south or the north. A lot of patience is required, but ultimately that patience is rewarded. Ferries leave from Ampana to Wakai almost daily and while the distance doesn't seem far in kilometers, it takes 4 to 6 hours. Some of these ferries then head to Gorontalo in the north with stops at Kadidiri and Katupat along the way. But again patience is required because unloading at Wakai can take more than an hour. Just relax and enjoy the chaos at the dock, then take in more of the beautiful scenery. Once in the Togians, it is fairly easy to charter boats for day trips. Check schedules carefully for return - not all Gorontalo-Ampana bound ferries stop at Katupat so you may be relying on a small outrigger to get you to Wakai and these will only go if weather permits. We were lucky that the morning we needed to leave for Wakai was relatively calm, and een though the outrigger felt a little unsafe in the open ocean, once the driver took us into the channels between islands, it was a beautiful morning cruise.
