Transport to Ankify
The prices for transfer between Nosy Be and Ankify range between 6,000 and 13,000 Ariary (2017). The 6,000 Ariary boat is a large but slow boat taking about 1.5 hours, the 9,000 Ariary boat is a bit faster and the 13,000 Ariary boat is a shared speed boat for up to 20 people. For those who do not want to wait until the shared boat is full, there are also private boats for 80,000 Ariary (prices 2017). At the harbour in Hell-Ville, passengers will be greeted by pushy ticket salesmen, who only function to be annoying and increase the price. For their 'service' of carrying the passport to the ticket counter and calling a boat over, the 13,000 Ariary will typically raise to 20,000 Ariary. Passengers should ignore these middle-men, pass the gate and buy the ticket directly themselves.
