To find out and analyze the Sea Transportation Business on the Lasiwa-Amolengo route in North Buton Regency, a benefit cost analysis will be carried out from revenue and costs.. The results obtained that the sea transportation business carried out by 6 (six) entrepreneurs in Wakorumba District is one of the sea transportation service businesses that supports the mobilization of goods and people. The results of the analysis show that the average sea transportation service business income reaches Rp. 8,105,452.00 per month. The level of income earned by business actors is influenced by the price (fare), the number of passengers and the number of goods.
