A daily boat runs between Baranusa and Kalabahi, leaving at 08:00, costing 50,000 rupiah and taking three to four hours, depending on weather and sea conditions.
The MV Ileape arrives from Lewoleba at around 23:00 every Wednesday night, leaving for Kalabahi the following morning at 07:00. In the reverse direction, it leaves Kalabahi on Fridays at 08:00, arriving at Baranusa at 12:00 and continuing on to Lewoleba, arriving there at 20:00. These times are the scheduled times and some late running is to be expected.
There are no small, local scheduled ferries to Lewoleba—the MV Ileape is your only option from Baranusa.
