 Access

Take 4X4 transport from Freetown to Tombo (a few hours depending on weather, road conditions). On Thursdays catch the public boat to Bonthe. From there catch a weekly boat to the Turtle Islands and bring camping gear.
A safer alternative is to arrange all boat transfers with the main Turtle Island operator (Daltons Banana Guesthouse 076278120). In this case take taxi from Freetown to Kent (30'-90')where the boat will meet you for the 4 hour journey to the Turtle Islands. It is not a matter of comfort (faster boat, food supplies, bottled water, tents, experienced crew, etc.) provided, but a matter of safety (second engine, compass, GPS, tourist operator safety standards applied, life jackets, daylight travel and a lot more) that can make a difference something goes wrong.

 Additional Information

All I know is that the waves get big in a country where there aren't many big waves. I never surfed it but heard of from a third party that it gets big and good.

Whatever business you have in Sierra Leone, if you have a few extra days, check these islands and report back. There is a ton of potential but it takes time to get there.
