Bohol to Cebu Destination Reviews

Ticket booking are easy as simple
Ferry Open-Air, Oceanjet (Oceanjet), Jul 2, 2024
Airconditioning is not that cold in tourist area (in front part like number 6,7,8 seats) only in front of the AC where it was located that's why my baby is always irritable and crying. I always go where the AC is standing to receive cold AC so that my baby can sleep. It's not on time,we depart 30minutes late.

on time , smooth book in , no complaints
Ferry Tourist SPR, Supercat, Apr 24, 2024
The company operating the ferry were very helpful and professional. The boat left on time, and arrived in Oslob within 80 minutes of departing Momo beach, Panglao. Life jackets were available for all passengers. The boat has wooden seats, so many passengers opted to sit on their life jackets rather than wear them. When we arrived in Oslob, it was necessary to step off the boat into shallow sea water, as the water is too shallow to dock along side. The boats crew loaded and unloaded all the passengers luggage, and there was no issue with the weight of the bags.

The ferry took 6 and not 4 hours flr the travel. For the price still good.

Keep in mind you have a big chance to arrive at 6pm and not 4pm! Fortunately I felt this coming and booked a day before my flight, otherwise I would missed it. Standard B was a comfy bed and I enjoyed the journey
Ferry Standard B, Lite Shipping, Nov 18, 2023
It does not clearlu say tourist seats or tourist corner. We were just shoved to seat without them checking the tickets. I think you owe me 6 USD back
