Marovo Lagoon

Getting there & away

Contents

Boat

Both MV Pelican Express (28104) and MV Solomon Express (28064 in Honiara) stop at Mbunikalo (S$240, 20 minutes from Nggatokae), Nggasini (in central Marovo; S$280) and Seghe (S$300) on their way to Gizo. The MV Pelikan Express plies this route on Sunday (return on Monday) while the MV Solomon Express runs on Friday (return on Sunday).

Air

There are two mains gateways to Marovo: Seghe (for North Marovo Lagoon) and Nggatokae (for South Marovo Lagoon). A third gateway is Ramata (for Mavo Lodge and North Marovo Lagoon in case of bad weather at Seghe). Flights connect Seghe to Honiara (from S$666), Munda (from S$495) and Gizo (from S$465) six days a week. Take note that Solomon Airlines is fickle and flirtatious with Seghe’s little airstrip, and flights are regularly rerouted through Ramata, especially in bad weather. Nggatokae is serviced from Honiara (from S$617, three weekly) and Seghe (or Munda, three weekly).
