Ferry Transfers & Shuttles

To bring you to our favorite parts of this region, we make liberal use of ferry transfers and shuttles on this trip.  You'll be on board a ferry or in a shuttle for many of the days on this trip as we island-hop like the locals do. Consider this an opportunity to view some spectacular marine scenery (and occasional wildlife!) while resting your legs in preparation for your next activity.

Our daily itineraries and activities are based on ferry departures that were accurate at the time of this printing. Unexpected changes to the ferry schedules, however, can result in alterations to the activities as described. We appreciate your understanding and flexibility if we must adjust our activities according to ferry departures, and assure you that any such changes will not affect the quality of your experience.
