Hello! Guys how are you. I bring you some updated information from the caspian sea ferry (Kyryk - Baku route) nowadays Aktau port is not working for this kind of ferries, most of the ferries are leaving from Kyryk port. Kyryk is located 70km away from Aktau. A taxi might cost you 1000/1500 tenge per person. Taxi and autostop is the only way to get there. The ferry costs 80u$$ dollars per person. For detailed information you can always call Sultan, he speaks little english and is always willing to help you. ‭+7 (777) 583-88-70‬. Hope this information can help you in your journey! Safe travels, good luck and Enjooy !!

Hello! I’m currently in Aktau and waiting for the next boat to Baku. I’ve called both Sultan and Hamid and they’re both uncertain about the boat. I wonder if you went straight to Kuryk to get the ticket and wait for the ferry there, or you simply waited for them to inform you about the boat in Aktau? Thanks!

I wouldn't suggest you go till Hamid or Sultan tells you they are starting to sell tickets. But be prepared to head out there on short notice. And stay in touch with them.

I know, that's strange. But on the map you can see that the ship is coming nearer to Alat all the time. I'm going to call the ticket office soon, hope this brings more clarity. I'll let you know when we find out something.
