how to get there

there is daily access to Tobello, a town to the north end of the neighbouring island of Halmahera. From there it is a 1,5 hour speed boat ride across to the island of Morotai. There are also scheduled seasonal direct flights from Ternate to Daruba (35 min), the capital of Morotai. From there our pick up service will transfer guests directly to Moro Ma Doto which is approximately 1 hours drive away. Charter flights or helicopter services can be arranged. A private 'helipad' is situated at Moro Ma Doto.
