1)13.15 is kinda tight for the 2pm boat however you can catch the fast ferry for certain days. check the link for the timing http://www.lumbalumba.com/travel.html

2) you can carry on all that stuff except pointer and knife (duh) but make sure you PRINT out your flight itinerary in case the immigration wanted to see it. this is to avoid any delay.

3) once you got out from the airport, dash to the exit ( which is like 10m away lol) then grab the most mat rempit looking drivers and get to the dock. ride would be around 30 mins.

so yea if you ask me, best to travel light so you can make time to get onto the ferry by 2pm.

good luck on your mad dash!

no problem. just got back from weh a month+ ago. great place and if you are lucky, you can bump into school of dolphins. we heard them underwater but they went the other way so no luck.
and fyi. UW current are unpredictable so make sure you bring a pair of gloves.
scorpion fish? everywhere so look before putting your hands on any rock.
also fyi. if you guys carrying big luggage then make sure you can lift it up way above your head, the ferry are packed with cars and bikes and for god sake do take the aircond VVVIP room...( although the aircond seems cacat but hey...better than to be stuck outside for 2 hours ride eh?)
enjoy!
