I believe the trip was close to 1/2 hour. I'm estimating that Kontiki was about half, to 2/3, the time and cost.
One other comment - when we got off the ship it was cloudy and windy - almost looked like it might storm and the seas were a little rough by the ship. We initially had a pretty large group and we stood in front of the taxi after we'd discussed the time and cost and talked to decide if we should go all the way there due to the weather. The cab driver told us the weather would be fine there. About half of us went to Porto Mari and the rest went to Kontiki. The weather and conditions at both places were great all day. The group that went to Kontiki raved about the place as much as we raved about Porto Mari - but I still think I'd prefer Porto Mari unless we have a short stay or want to see another part of the island.
