To reach Kei Kecil you can use Wings air from Ambon to Tual ( capital of Kei Kecil ). It cost around $50 for 1.5 hours flight with Fokker type airplane. It is the easiest way to reach the islands.
Other mean is Pelni boat. It was the same Pelni boat from Ambon that will stop at Banda and the next stop is in Kei Kecil. The boat will continue the trip to Fak-Fak in Papua. The same boat will be back in the next 3 days to sail all the way to Banda and Ambon. Or wait for another 2 weeks for the same boat to be at Kei.
The distance between one to another places in Kei Kecil is far. You need either motorbike or car.
From the airport to places you stay, used taxi. In average it will cost $10 - $15, depends how far is the place. Once you exit the gate of airport, there will be many people offering for taxi. Do bargain, they know you are foreigner.
For going around, rent the motor bike ($1/hour including petrol ). It can be easily arranged by the homestay.
For going to airport, ask the place you stay to call Ojek ( motorbike taxi ) which cost around $5/motorbike. The other option if you have big luggage, ask for Angkot with almost same price of taxi. The owner usually made good relation with Angkot driver to take tourist regularly back to the airport.
