Flights arrive twice daily at Nusatupe Airfield from Honiara and international flights arrive in Munda on Saturdays with domestic connection to Gizo the same afternoon. The boat transfer from Gizo is SBD 500.00 per person return by motorized boat taking approximately 60 minutes depending on weather. For those arriving by passenger boats to Gizo town , the transfer will be from the Government wharf. As you will be traveling by open boat it's best to carry a spray jacket and sun protection. An optional boat transfer from Munda to connect with the international flight with a brief stop over at Gizo takes 2.5 hours, costs $1,000.00 for boat plus fuel ( 60-70 litres @ $10 per litre) and is very weather dependant.
