When you're heading for Alona Beach on Panglao you will pass through Tacbilaran. The normal way would be with the Supercat ferry (http://www.supercat.com.ph/) from Cebu City or Dumaguete. Once off the ferry you can get a taxi or a tricycle (3 wheel motorcycle with side car). If you're travelling alone the tricycle is the cheapest solution (something like 150-200 PHP) but if you're travelling in a group a taxi will be pretty much the same.
In either case you should expect to spend around 40 minutes passing through a beautyful countryside before arriving in Alona Beach. Notice that there might still be 200 m to go (e.g. to Alonaville) when they wont take you any longer! Ask them to carry your bag if you're bringing your own dive equipment.

According to Mang Jun our hired taxi during our trip in Bohol there we're only 50 taxi's registered for hire in Bohol during peak seasons these taxis were fully booked and busy touring the visitors of the Island. Taxi fare Tagbilaran to Tawala Panglao cost you 300php-400php one way. We are lucky to found Mang June as our service (refferal from a friend), he picked-up us at the airport and drop-off at the pier and even booked us at Bohol Divers Resort which we have enjoyed our stay. To contact Mang Jun Malisa txt him @ 09287342073.

It is cheaper if you take a taxi from Tagbilaran to Panglao. If you're staying in Tagbilaran for a night or two, you can ask your hotel to call you taxi and take you to Panglao. The taxi charges you +50% of the meter rate going there. you can arrange with the driver to pick you up to back to Tagbilaran. The rate is times two of the meter rate. That's the standard rating system that the province use. No worries. :>

You can reach Panglao Island using public transportation through Tagbilaran's Dao Terminal. Take the Tawala-bound jeepney and expect about an hour before you reach Dumaloan/ Alona beaches. Fare at the time (July 2007) was P20 per person.

It’s cheaper to take a tricycle to Panglao Island from Tagbilaran City, Bohol. It costs about half of the regular taxi fare. We paid 250 pesos from the Tagbilaran Airport to Bohol Beach Club. Taxi fare is so expensive, it would cost around 450 pesos if you hire one from the city or around 600 pesos if you make arrangements with the resort. Tricycles usually have a storage compartment at the back, so the driver can place your entire luggage there. The trip from Tagbilaran City to the Bohol Beach Club is around 30 minutes. There’s plenty of fresh air and nice sceneries, so if you’re into budget travel and not that picky, taking this kind of transportation would just be fine. The tricycle drivers in Bohol are friendly and the trip is safe.

We were fortunate enough to meet Nito (the driver of cab Red ~42) on our second day on Panglao Island. He was always cheerful and most of all reliable!
One day (Sunday) we had to use a different driver because Nito was involved with his church. What a disaster! We were badly let down. This only server to highlight the great service we got from Nito.
