Getting Here

Fly from Jakarta in the morning, be here by the afternoon 🚤

Option of 2 x Fast Ferries

arrive at Telo Surf Camp from either Nias or Padang 

Nias fast ferry

Padang – Telo:
Friday’s Departs 0800 Arrives 1500

Telo to Padang:
Wednesday’s Departs 0800 arrives 1500

Padang fast ferry

Nias (Teluk Dalam) – Telo:
Sat, Mon, Tues. Departs 1500 arrives 1700

The Fast Ferry was introduced in 2019 and has proven a very reliable and safe mode of transport.

Coming via Nias if you get the early flights out of Medan you can be in Telo the same day.

For the more cruisey traveller a stopover at the world famous Lagundri Bay is also an option on the way here or on the way back – well worth considering.

Pre pandemic there were direct flights with Garuda Jakarta – Gunungsitoli and we are expecting these to open up again soon. With that option you can depart Jakarta early morning and be at TSC the same afternoon on Saturdays, Mondays and Tuesdays.

Depending on the schedule it is possible to leave TSC and be in Jakarta the same evening. Contact us for updates on this route.

Regular flights Jakarta to Padang we recommend Garuda or Citilink. You would need to be in Padang on a Thursday to make the ferry on Friday morning.

With our logistics teams in Padang and Nias we can coordinate your transfers from airport to ferry and we’re more than happy to help you plan your trip.

Simply send off your booking request to get some dates pencilled in.


“Have just got back from a dream trip at Telo Surf Camp. Sooly and Mel were super helpful with our travel and visa issues due to Covid. Their many years experience running Huey Surf Charters surf boat truly shows. The waves were virtually empty due to the virus and Brett our surf guide got us into the best waves everyday. I can’t reccommend any more strongly to contact Sools and pull the trigger for an amazing experience. I will remember this trip forever.”
