On the way to the island from the mainland, we rode an uncomfortable ferry for ninety minutes in which we had a minimal view of the outside. On the way back to the mainland, we took a local plane. Check In took less than five minutes. The flight took close to 25 minutes including two stops along the way. A direct flight would have been less than 10 minutes. I sat directly behind the pilot, at a window for a great view of the turquoise waters.
