They left an hour to late.
Ferry High Speed Ferry, Apekoptravel (Apekoptravel), Aug 29, 2023
The departing ferry ride and check-in process was great. But I did not get a ticket for my return ferry ride.
Ferry Tourist, Lite Shipping, Aug 24, 2023
No free food and water
Ferry Business Class, Oceanjet (Oceanjet), Aug 14, 2023
Really bad instructions about starting point and long delay. But the trip was comfortable and calm.
Ferry Business Class, Lite Shipping, Jul 27, 2023
It is cheaper to book directly at the ferry's website. Seats note really comfortable. You need to pay a small terminal fee when you arrive and also extra to check in luggage. Instructions as to how to proceed or where to queue not clear enough
Ferry Tourist Class, Oceanjet (Oceanjet), Jul 2, 2023
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.
Ferry Tourist Class, Oceanjet (Oceanjet), May 30, 2023
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.
Ferry Business SPR, Supercat (Supercat), May 18, 2023
too much air conditioning, boat left more than 45 minutes late
Ferry Business Class, Lite Shipping, May 17, 2023
