Chebu Shipping

Ferry in Buka

The MV Chebu ferries passengers from Lae (departing every Sunday at 11am) to Buka (arrives Wednesday, seat/upper deck seat/1st class K420/K440/K650), via Kimbe (arrives Monday, K210/K222/K315) and Rabaul (arrives Tuesday, K320/340/420). The return voyage departs Buka on Wednesday, Rabaul on Thursday and Kimbe on Friday.

At the time of writing, the Buka service was only fortnightly; the ferry turning back from Rabaul to Kimbe and Lae, but keeping to the above schedule (which, of course, can change).
