Caticlan & Cagban Jetty Port / Boracay Ferry Service

Caticlan & Cagban Jetty Port / Boracay Ferry Service
In general, the island of Boracay has no airport. Air crafts with the aim to Boracay are landing at the domestic airport "Godofredo P. Ramos" in Caticlan on Panay Island.

Transportation to and from Boracay is well organized. From Caticlan Airport it takes only three minutes by tricycle to the passenger terminal "Caticlan Jetty Port", where boats are leaving to Boracay Island. Many motorized tricycle-drivers are waiting in front of the airport building to transfer passengers to "Caticlan Jetty Port".

Arrived at the passenger terminal "Caticlan Jetty Port" visitors need to buy three different kind of tickets for the trip to "Cagban Jetty Port" in Boracay. One ticket "Environmental Fee" (75 pesos), another ticket for the "Terminal Fee" (100 pesos), as well as a ticket for the ferry of your choice. Children over six years of age are charged the same rates as adults. Cash dispensers (ATMs) are available at the passenger terminal in Caticlan.

There are two alternatives for the crossing to and from Boracay. Firstly, motorized outrigger boats/bangkas (25 pesos). Numerous of those bangkas operate in very short time intervals to Boracay. Second option is the ferry crossing with Shipping company "Montenegro Lines" (30 pesos). This vessel has an air-conditioned section. Before entering "Caticlan Passenger Terminal" all luggage will be screened through an x-ray machine.

The ferry service between Caticlan and Boracay is frequently during operating hours. The first boat leaves Boracay early in the morning at 5:00am. The last trip from Caticlan to Boracay is around 10:00pm. The ferry crossing of Tabon Strait from "Caticlan Jetty Port" to "Cagban Jetty Port" takes about 10 minutes. A sufficient number of life jackets are available on the boats. Depending on the weather conditions in Boracay between June and October (Habagat season) and strong westerly winds, ferries to Boracay can arrive at "Tambisaan Jetty Port".

Some 5-star hotels, such as the Boracay Mandarin Island Hotel, Boracay Regency and Shangri La Boracay Resort & Spa are equipped with their own boats for their guests.

    Hi,

    WHAT IS THE ENVIRONMENT FEE FOR ?

    Whenever I visit Boracay, I have to pay for Environmental Fee BUT
    THE ISSUE IS,

    I SEE A LOT OF BLACK AND DARK GREEN MOSS AROUND THE BEACH, PLASTIC BAGS, WOODS, CANS, CIGARETTE BUTT etc....AND ITS GETTING WORST.

    WE ARE PAYING BUT WE NEVER SEE THE IMPROVEMENT.

    ReplyDelete
  4. Wow!

    I never realized that moss is actually bad for the environment.. we should all campaign to remove all the moss in the world.

  5. Hi,

    Have been to Oyster Ferry and am glad was able to ride this ferry. Its comfy and doesn't rock or makes you sea sick. Never knew I arrived cagban. Smooth as silk, he2. Boracay makes your problem vanish in thin air. Relaxing and most of all love the party ambience every night. Well it was short 3 days stay and hope to come back during summer season again. Arghhhh..... manila again now

    ReplyDelete
  6. Hi Anonymous,

    Moss does not equal to dirt.

    First of all, the environment fee is really small (funny - none of us complain when paying Jollibee and Mc Donalds to feed us garbage for 50 pesos or more each, but we all complain when we are asked for a fee to keep an island clean)

    The environment fee is used mainly for cleaning the beaches. Now, moss on the beach may look dirty of us, but it is part of the ecology and not "garbage". Ditto for the wood, branches, twigs and leaves that come up the beach - especially during and after the habagat.

    Indeed removing them would be harmful for the environment.

    While I do admit that the beach is not as clean as it was 10 years ago (thanks to the huge influx of tourists who we cannot say no to - for we want the money and employment that comes with them), we at the Aklan Boracay Municipality are doing as much as we can. Such environmental fees help us to say no to large corporates who want to buy huge pieces of land for development in Boracay... Ayala, SM and many Korean Japanese interests. If we do not have funds with us, the municipality will easily vote for these corporates and Boracay, as we still know it, will be lost. Only rich people will be able to afford it.

    We depend on fellow Pilipinos and foreigner tourists ....

  20. Like other posters I am looking at a flight on Philexpress departing Caticlan at 07:45 am.
    I see the first Oyster Ferry leaves Boracay at 06:40 and Martin advises it is a 10 minute ferry ride, which would srrive at 06:50.

    Soooo... given that Philexpress says it closes check-in at 45 mins before departure (which would be 07:00.

    Is this really cutting it fine, or are things quite flexible?

    Cheers

    1. Galvo, there are many other ferry boats as oyster. These other boats are leaving from Boracay (Cagban port) within minutes. The transfer from/to Boracay is well organised. If you are at 5:30am in Cagban port, it won´t be a problem at all to get your flight at 7:45am.

    Hi Kae,

    To be on the safe side, you can leave as early as 6PM from your hotel. That'll give you 2 hrs travel time from the island to Kalibo and 2.5 hrs waiting time for your 10:30 flight. Cheers :)

  35. If my flight from Caticlan to Manila leaves at 720am on a Sunday in February, I would want to be at the Caticlan airport by 630am. Are there ferries available from Boracay to Caticlan between 530-6am? I will be traveling alone to/from the US for a wedding.

  36. Hi there looking to fly in to Caticlan airport, is it true you can only take on 10kg on the planes as this is what i have seen on forums and threads? If so i will have to fly to Kalibo as my luggage is 20kg.

    Many thanks.

    ReplyDelete
  37. That´s right. Check in luggage to Caticlan with Cebu Pacific Air, PAL Express is limited to 10kg, carry on luggage (1bag) to 7kg per person. Of course you can check-in 20 or 30 kilos, but have to pay an excess-fee per kilo. Kalibo airport would be an option, because Airbus A320/A321 operate there.

    1. If you have to be at Kalibo airport around 6am, it would be the best to spend the night at a hotel in Kalibo. Boat traffic starts around 4am - leaving in the distance of a few minutes to Caticlan Jetty Port.
