    CATICLAN TO BORACAY FERRY

    by LoriPori Written Feb 4, 2012

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    After leaving Caticlan Airport, walk across the street to where the Motor Tricycles are. The ride costs 50 Pesos per trike for the 5-minute trip to the Jetty Port. The Jetty Port uses Bangka Pump Boats that ferry between the Caticlan Mainland and Boracay Island. The Bangka trip costs 25 Pesos per person. Non-residents also pay a 75 peso environmental Fee and a 50 Peso Terminal Fee. You need to get these tickets outside the Jetty Port before you enter - Total 150 pesos per person ($3.00 U.S.).
    The trip from the mainland to the Island is about 15 minutes. Try and get seated at the front of the boat or else you will have to make your way to the back of the boat which can be difficult - at least it was for me. Wearing life-jackets is required, but you may just put it on your lap to have it handy. If you have heavy luggage, porters will assist you at 20 Pesos per item.

  • Cebu Pacific flight from Manila to Boracay

    Title: Cebu Pacific Has Thieves Working For Them, Travel At Your Own Risk!!!

    On Dec 30, 2011, my family flew on Cebu Pacific Flight 5J 915 from Manila to Caticlan to go to Boracay for New Years. My wife and I were seated in Row number 1 directly behind the cock pit. Due to events on the flight, we accidently left a digital camera sitting in our seats when we exited the aircraft. All individuals on the flight exited at the rear of the plane ahead of us. We were THE LAST PASSENGERS to get off. The only individuals left on board the flight were the pilots, flight attendants and cleaning crew.

    We noticed that our camera was missing almost immediately after while getting our bags. We spoke with the Caticlan airport Cebu Pacific representative. He attempted to talk to the plane staff but said that the plane was preparing for departure and nothing could be done. However, he would forward our information to the manila office for follow up.

    Over the next few days in Boracay, we had several phone calls from the Caticlan Cebu Pacific rep only to say there was no new information. Our case was still being investigated.

    We returned to Manila on January 4, 2012. We filed a notice with the office Cebu Pacific office on arrival in terminal 2 and spoke to a manager. He said that the matter would be investigated. We never received one phone call or one email from Cebu Pacific in the month that followed the filing of this report.

    I believe our camera was stolen by the flight staff. No one else was on board following our departure. The camera was on a seat in view of the staff. Cebu Pacific management saw and heard our notices of the loss/ theft but took zero actions. They never communicated with us. They do not seem to care that their employees will steal from their passengers. When you travel domestically in the Philippines you have many options; Philippine Airlines, Zest Air, Air Phil Express, Seair and others. No other airlines personnel have ever stolen from me. I have taken Philippine Airlines more times than I can count. Take any other air carrier instead of Cebu Pacific. Only take Cebu Pacific if it is absolutely necessary. If you must take Cebu Pacific, make sure all bags are locked and you can maintain control/ possession/ visual of your valuables at all times. Cebu Pacific staff will steal from you and the management does not care that they do it. A cheaper plane ticket with Cebu Pacific will cost you more when your valuables are stolen.

    I will retract this statement if Cebu Pacific contacts me and compensates my family for our loss. However, I really doubt at this point that Cebu Pacific could even find our filed complaint.

    P50/pax - tricycle fare from Airport to Port
    P25/pax - boat fare
    P125/pax - term'l/env't fee
    P50/pax - tricycle fare from Cagban Port to Station 2

    Southwest Bus

    by asianbelle Updated Dec 15, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    In spite of the opening of Caticlan airport, Kalibo is still a favored gateway to Boracay due to its improved and more reliable airport facilities. From Kalibo, one must take a 1.5 land trip to Caticlan.

    Vans and buses bound to Caticlan are immediately available at the airport terminal. For a less-hassle trip, you can arrange to avail of the services of Southwest Bus or Inter-island Bus. They offer a package that includes Kalibo-Caticlan-Boracay hotel round trip transfers. Though a bit pricey than taking the van, it saves you from queuing for ticket in Caticlan or haggling with trike drivers in Cagban.

    Wooden boats

    by asianbelle Updated Dec 14, 2010

    4.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There are 2 ways of getting to Boracay. One is to take the small planes from Manila to Caticlan. The other is to take the bigger planes from Manila to Kalibo and then take a 1.5 hour land trip to Caticlan.

    From Caticlan, the island is about 15-20 minute boat ride away. Boracay is sub-divided into 3 major boat stations - 1, 2 and 3. The boat used to drop off/pick up passengers directly to these 3 stations, but in recent years, the local government opened Cagban port and utilized it as the central port station. From Cagban, there are multi-cabs, tricycles, and shuttle service to take you to your hotel destination.

    by cyndymc Updated Aug 14, 2010

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    As you get out of the Caticlan Airport, walk to the right where you'll see a ticket booth. That is where you will pay for the tricycle ride from the airport to Jetty Port, the boat ride from Jetty Port to Boracay Port, as well as other incidental expenses.

    Following is a breakdown of expenses, as of our latest trip:

    Tricycle: P50.00 / 3 pax*
    Environmental fee: P50/pax**
    Terminal fee: P50/pax**
    Pump Boat: P25/pax**

    *You will give the tricycle driver the ticket for the tricycle ride.
    **Upon reaching the Jetty Port, you'll present these tickets

    Additional Expenses:
    (Optional) Porter's Fee: P20/item
    Another Terminal Fee @ Caticlan Port: P50.00/pax if you are not a resident of Boracay

    Travel Time:
    Caticlan Airport to Jetty Port: 5 minutes
    Jetty Port To Boracay Port: 20 minutes

    Important to know:
    The earliest regular boat trip is 5am, and the last trip is about 10pm. Earlier or later than the regular schedule, you have to make arrangements directly with the people at the port for chartered boat. Prevailing charter rate was P1,500 as of our recent trip.

    Cheap Flight: Book Ahead

    by michelle.jaguimit Updated Jul 20, 2010

    One of my friends arrange the travel for us. Although I am a travel agent in the group, and that should be my duty, I let them do the honor. Our flight is with SEAIR which will flies straight to Caticlan Airport with a fare of 1940php -roundtrip, booked on March 13, 2010. That is 4 months prior to the schedule departure date on July 10, 2010. 12 confimred passenger's but only 8 showed up at the airport.
    Buy or Bring a snack before you go to the airport as the cost of food inside is way too high.
    Packed Lunch: One ULAM and plain rice cost 165php, convert to fried rice cost 167php.
    Pringles: 165php (wow!)
    Anticipate a delay on your flight schedule. SEAIR provided a pack lunch which we named as "delayed food" and a bottle of water.
    We have this complimentary shuttle ride with SEAIR going to Jetty Port.

    75php terminal and boat fee -Jetty Port to Boracay Island
    100php/4 pax Tricycle to D'Mall

    A personnel from Tan's Guesthouse meet us at the D'Mall to carry our luggages and lead us to the place we are going to stay.

    Sea Air

    by mastercooks Written Jun 7, 2010

    Well during my first time to Boracay I prefer ease and convinience so I did choose Sea Air as the airline since its the only airline that flies directly to Caticlan when we are there. Just before it was around 1800 pesos one way but you need to book in advance to get a cheaper price and good time of flight of your choice, but now I think the price have increased already and I am now searching for other alternative airline or even RORO maybe for a change :)

    Tryc

    by shomalabanan Written Jun 3, 2010

    If you are riding a special tryc in boracay, it would cost you 50 Pesos. But if you wait along the road and ride along with others, it would cost you 10 Pesos only, this is a good deal for those who are travelling less than 4 persons.

    Boracay Port To Your Hotel

    by cyndymc Written May 22, 2010

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    When you get off from the motorboat, you have to get a tricycle to go to your hotel/resort. Regular tricycle fare is P20/pax if you get a tricycle that is plying the road; if you get one from the line, charter rate is P100 (for 1 trike, not per person) for local tourists and P150 for foreign tourists. Some drivers will attempt to charge local tourists P150. Luckily, we've been forewarned by my daughter's officemates that we shouldn't pay more than P100.

    Seair to Caticlan to final distination Boracay

    by bituin56 Written Mar 21, 2010

    Seair is among the current few airlines that service the route MNL to Caticlan and back. Caticlan is the airport one would prefer to land in and take off from when traveling to Boracay Island. It is the closest airport and when one books a limited travel package (say of of 3D/2N), one would prefer to get most of that daylight time from the 3Day package. You get the picture.
    A very recent experience traveling via Seair is the BEST ad it's competitiors: PAL Express, Cebu Pacific and even the newcomer, ZestAir could get for free. Long and short of it: no heads up on flight delay, flight re-route or cancellation info is not given until one actually comes up to the counter to inquire. A flat tire situation took over half of practical daylight time to correct, Seaair claims the flat tire was not their fault. Perhaps, but the situation created a domino effect that stretched beyond imagination. Tourists who had babies in tow sat it out inside a Seair plane for about an hour WITHOUT any offer from the stewardess for bottled water, any beverage; when asked, stewardess said no (just like in Little Britain sitcom. if it weren't for the frustraton already at boiling point, it would have illicited a chuckle from me); visitors who had a very small window to squeeze in this vacation, time-wise and finding out a chunk of their vacation is gone and Seair apologizing "for not exceeding expectations."
    I rest my case......
