Current ferry schedule from Ende/Flores/Indonesia
We currently (02.04.12) went from Ende in Flores to Kupang in West-Timor. At the moment there is 1 ferry a week every Monday between 7 a.m. and 10 a.m. so you should be at the port around 7 a.m.
Our ferry arrived at the Ippi port, but there are 2 ports in Ende so check carefully at which port the ferry is arriving!
The ticket office opened at 8 a.m. and we paid 230.000 Indonesian Rupiah each bike (including the rider).
There are cabins for rent on the ferry, but they are awful and dirty and the crew wanted 500.000 Rupiah for a cabin so we decided to sleep between our bikes, which were not too bad because the ferry was not too crowded!
(see the pic of our cosy home during the 18 hours ferry ride!
If you have to wait for the ferry in Ende, we can recommend the Hotel Ikhlas. It is not too expensive and they have WiFi and the owner, who is speaking English very well, is very helpful with checking the current schedule for the ferry!
Many greetings, currently from Kupang in West-Timor
