Getting there

Huey’s main port is in Teluk Bungus, Padang in West Sumatra.
Padang has an international airport.

Air Asia service the Kuala Lumpur route while Garuda, Citilink, Lion Air, Batik Air and Sri Wijaya service the Jakarta route.

Huey often finishes or starts a charter in Bengkulu or Sibolga. Direct flights with Garuda are available from Jakarta for both ports.

There are also direct flights to Padang from Medan, Batam and Gunungsitoli.
Transfers to and from the boat are included in your price as is Mentawai Tax.
If overnighting in Padang we suggest booking on and our hotels of choice are the Hayam Wuruk, Axana, Savali, Batang Arau and Mecure.

After you clear immigration in Padang you will be swamped by porters as you wait for your bags to come through. These guys do a good job carrying your boards to our vehicles but will try and relieve you of your hard-earned cash. $5 or 50,000 rupiah is plenty, more if you’re feeling generous. Don’t be fooled by the sad or angry face.


  • Hey guys. What an awesome trip. I’ve been running boats professionally for 20 years and this is as slick of an operation as I’ve ever come across. From the travel agent in Aussie to dropping us into all the right waves Huey-1 nailed it from woe to go. Thanks Sools, K-Rock, Am, Ari and Amon. Awesome!!

  • Seriously mate, had the sickest time. Unbelievable food and hospitality. Wherever we went the wind was on our side. The crew did an amazing job and I caught a monster Spanish Mackeral, so stoked. All in all it was a journey I will never forget. Thanks Sooly.

  • Hi Sools, Just got back from our trip. Mate we had a great time on board Huey. From the moment we stepped on the boat we were treated like kings. The crew were awesome and as for the food, the quality and amount left the boys shaking their heads. Benny was the best and got us into great uncrowded waves from the very start and his knowledge of the breaks was invaluable. Once again thanks for an epic trip.

  • Amazing stuff all the way. Kairul is the best cook ever, sending my mum for lessons. Sooly had it sussed and found us sick waves and I was stoked to hook up with cool lads. The boat cruises like no other, great for sea sickness sufferers. I loved it!! Definitely be back.
