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 Agoda.com 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.
