Cebu to Bohol Destination Reviews

This our 3rd ferry boat ride in the Philippines but this was the worst experience. I am not sure if it was the ferry line or the boat that made the difference but the A/C wasn't fully working and the entire boat smelled like sewage to say the least. The ferry was also 30mins late. What made it more tolerable was that the crew put on a movie.

Good boat ride. Chair to narrow for seating.
Ferry Tourist SPR, Supercat (Supercat), May 27, 2023
Much easier than I was anticipating based on the instructions. I arrived just 25 minutes before departure time due to traffic and was worried I'd be too late, I was then a bit confused to see the office closed. Luckily a helpful local pointed me KN the right direction, with the prebooked ticket and voucher I could straight into the terminal bulling, pay my 25 pesos local tax, check in my bag (60 pesos) and get straight on the ferry. No issues with my luggage een though I was a bit nervous leaving it. The boat was comfortable, especially in business class which was nicely air conditioned. Bags were unloaded quickly at the other end.

Ganda ng dagat. Kaso katagal nagstart ng makina. We waited more than an hour for it to start.

Business class has extremely comfortable seats! Definitely worth the extra money
Ferry Business Class, Oceanjet (Oceanjet), May 12, 2023
On time easy and check in. Tv loud and air conditioning cool. Seats have little leg room for Europeans. Still need to print travel documents which is a waste of paper. No ID checked so carried passport unnecessarily. Smell of fuel in seating area before left pier.
Ferry Tourist SPR, Supercat (Supercat), Apr 9, 2023
Booking was a mission - your site didn’t show any Ocean Jet sailings for the day I was traveling (even though there were many), too much information is required unnecessarily, the payment stage is completely stupid - if you select ‘other’ as your country, the payment is compulsorily processed in euros even though all the prices are shown in local currency. And you’re based in Singapore! WTF?? The nonsense that goes on at the pier is a joke - a couple of surly ‘baggage handlers’ basically make up the fee, which is inflated so they get extra. A total con job.

Great support and customer service. Staff helped as we moved to different view areas. We arrived on time and our luggage was readily available. Wish I knew the pork noodles we bought at the terminal was not allowed on Bohol but that was my mistake. See you on the return ride. Thomas
