Marshall Islands Waterways

Marshall Islands is a series of 29 Coral Atolls made up of 1156 Islands. Use of waterways as interisland shipping is the only method of transporting any goods over 50-100Kg. Air transport to the 29 atolls is the main way in which people move between the island groups.

Additional Private enterprises also run shipping services throughout the islands 

Company Information

InterIsland shipping in RMI is the primary link between the main island capital of Majuro and the outer islands. The State owned operator is the only scheduled shipping operator in RMI. There are several private companies PII, Charles Dominick and Tolobar coconut processors who own private vessels for their own business purposes. Primarily they have 1-2 landing craft to move heavy plant and machinery between islands in the case of PII and Charles Dominic who are both in construction. Tolobar use their Landing craft to collect copra for processing in Majuro.  While these vessel are operated on a regular schedule they can be chartered if available.

The Marshal islands shipping company operates the most reliable schedule service throughout the outer Islands using 3 400MT LOLO freighters and one 300MT Landing craft.

There are no dedicated passenger services however the MISCO freighters have 4 cabins otherwise passenger travel on the deck.

RRE (Robert Reimers Enterprises) in Majuro also operate small vessels on charter as well as deep sea fishing boats.
