Good to know...

You can’t book the Mentawai Fast Ferry online. In our experience, it’s never full, so you’ll be fine to simply purchase a ticket the morning of your ferry trip. 

If you really want to book beforehand, you can go to the Mentawai Fast Harbor the day before your departure and pay. Their office closes at 7pm.

The slow, overnight ferry takes 10-11 hours to get to Siberut, and you’ll have to spend the night in a cabin within the boat.
