Aktau -> Baku ferry

Anyone taken this recently? I going to be there in September and am wondering how long I'm going to have to wait for the ferry...

Actually I have not been sailing with this ship but planning to do so next year. Here are two websites I found out and probably they will be interesting for you too:

We did the Caspian Sea crossing Baku Aktau 6 weeks ago. We waited in Baku for 4 days and phoned the shipping company daily until we got the message to go to the Port at Alat; once there we then waited approximately 10 hours to board the ferry. The crossing took 3 days, as they dropped anchor shortly after leaving Port.
There really is no predictability; others had been waiting up to 10 days for the ship to arrive some more fortunate travellers turned up the same day and crossed.
Cheers

Membership - help keep us going!

Horizons Unlimited is not a big multi-national company, just two people who love motorcycle travel and have grown what started as a hobby in 1997 into a full time job (usually 8-10 hours per day and 7 days a week) and a labour of love. To keep it going and a roof over our heads, we run events all over the world with the help of volunteers; we sell inspirational and informative DVDs; we have a few selected advertisers; and we make a small amount from memberships.

You don't have to be a Member to come to an HU meeting, access the website, or ask questions on the HUBB. What you get for your membership contribution is our sincere gratitude, good karma and knowing that you're helping to keep the motorcycle travel dream alive. Contributing Members and Gold Members do get additional features on the HUBB. Here's a list of all the Member benefits on the HUBB.
