Tetepare is a remote uninhabited island and is harder to reach than many common tourist destinations. Intrepid visitors with a keen sense of adventure will be rewarded for their efforts by close encounters with wildlife such as turtles, dugongs, giant rainforest trees, huge bump-headed parrotfish and harmless reef sharks. TDA endeavours to keep the cost of transfers as low as possible for guests. These prices cover the cost of petrol and the boat drivers wage. Transfer cost will be discounted for guests who book for 7 or more nights at the Tetepare Eco-lodge. If you are on a tight budget, one of the cheapest ways to get to Tetepare from Honiara is to catch the Bikoi Ferry from Honiara to the town of Ughele on Rendova Island and arrange for the Tetepare boat to pick you up from there. The ferry trip is a long trip of about 24 hours, however is cheaper than the flight, and drops you at a town closer to Tetepare than Munda, thus saving you money on the transfer.
Most activities not requiring a boat are free, such as snorkelling and wildlife walks. A guide will accompany you during island activities and is included in the all inclusive daily package.
