    Sun Cruises, Inc. has its own vehicles for transporting tourists around the island. Attractively colored tramvias are comfortable, airy vehicles reminiscent of the olden days' mode of transportation.

    Tourists are grouped according to nationality, not to discriminate, but to facilitate better communication between the tour guide and the tourists,e.g. Japanese nationals would be assigned to a Japanese-speaking tour guide.

    Tour Corregidor by Tramvia

    by victorwkf Updated Jan 18, 2008

    Tramvia at Corregidor Island, Philippines
    4 more images

    The main form of transport for the Corregidor Island tour will be the colourful tramvia (see photos) as no vehicles are allowed on the island except for a few cars and jeepneys. Before you reach the island via ferry, you will be told which tramvia you can sit (normally tramvia number 3, 6 and 9 are for foreign tourists and the rest are for local visitors). There are also specific tramvia for Japanese speaking tourists

    Try to remain on the same tramvia throughout the tour and please see my tip about tramvia on the "warning and danger" section.

    Besides the driver, there will be a guide on each tramvia who will explain to you the history of the island as well as the various monuments (e.g. guns, barracks, memorials). Overall, I find that the tramvia is a very relaxing and perhaps the best way to move around the island. There is no glass window, so photography is not affected too. If you want to take photos, it is best that you sit at the side.

    By the way, the cost of all the transportation, food, guide etc are included in the price of the package (except for snacks and drinks along the journey, souvenirs). You can buy some snacks and drinks on the tramvia as they do sell it there.

    Taking the ferry to Corregidor (Part 2)

    Ferry to Corregidor Island, Philippines
    4 more images

    The ferry to Corregidor Island is a big boat which can seat many people and is very comfortable (with air-con, TV etc). You will be assigned a seat number on your ticket and the staff of the boat will let you know where you will be seated. The journey to Corregidor Island takes about 45 minutes. There will be videos on Corregidor Island on the TV, and along the ferry journey, there will be a guide who will brief everyone on what you will expect from the day tour (the guide is very good and humourous). If you want to experience the fresh air, please go up to the second floor of the ferry and there is an open-spaced area at the back of the ferry.

    As you approach Corregidor Island, you will see the beautiful mountains of the Bataan Peninsula at the right of the ferry. Once you reach the Corregidor Island jetty, you will proceed to sit on the assigned tramvia (see my transport tip on tramvia) and begin your island adventure :)

    Taking the ferry to Corregidor (Part 1)

    The ferry terminal near CCP Complex, Manila
    4 more images

    The typical day tour of Corregidor Island starts with a ride to the Sun Cruises ferry terminal located near to the Cultural Centre of the Philippines (CCP) at Roxas Boulevard. The ticket booth (see photo) will open at 7am every day, so you can reach there slightly before 7am or slightly later. If you reach there earlier, tell the security guard that you want to join the tour and he will pass you a form to fill up indicating the preferences of your tour. After that, hand back the form to him and he will help you to slot it into the counter for processing later on.

    When the ticket counter opens, you can sit and relax as they will call out your name. As for the prices of the day tour, overnight stay etc, please refer to the official website of Sun Cruises below. After settling everything, you can be seated at the waiting area as the ferry will leave at about 8am. It is very important to keep the various tickets properly (e.g. ferry tickets, lunch ticket, Malinta Tunnel show ticket etc).

    At about 8am, there will be an announcement for you to board the ferry to Corregidor Island. Please go to part 2 of this tip.

    ride a rented boat if ur a group (cheaper)

    by dicdoc Written Sep 24, 2007

    For people from Bataan or near Bataan:
    *for groups

    If u want a cheaper rate, a boat from Cabcaben, Mariveles is a nice alternative than the Sun Cruise in CCP. u can get a rented boat for P1,500 roundtrip and P2,000 if they need to wait for you til the following day. the boat can fit 6-8 or even 10 persons.

    when u arrive in the island, the fee is less than P200. and the service trolley is less than P1,000 (i forgot if it was P600). *as of June 2007.

    Tramvia Around Corregidor Island

    by Cess8 Updated Jun 20, 2007

    This is the mode of transport of choice anywhere around Corregidor. The wide-open window allows the gentle breeze to refresh and at the same time affords the passenger a full view of the sights. The clanging of the bells serve as signals (very cute!). Just watch your step when boarding and alighting as this has been known to cause muscle strain (trust me on this).

    Sun Cruise Ferry from CCP

    The ferry trip comes as part of the day tour or night tour packages for Corregidor. The trip takes 1 hour and 15 minutes that will take you from the CCP complex harbour to the Corregidor pier. The ferry has two levels, both airconditioned and a viewing deck at the second level. War movies and documentaries are shown throughout the trip and a tour guide will give a preliminary talk during the last 15 or so minutes of the trip to Corregidor.

    From cruise ship to tramvia

    by precy828 Written Jun 13, 2007

    It's so easy to go to Corregidor Island, all you have to do is to go to CCP Complex before 7:00am and pay for the package you want. From the CCP, the trip would take about 1 1/2 hrs to get to the Island, there's a tramvia waiting for you there to take you around.

    Ride a Banca

    by i-s-a Updated Jul 16, 2006

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    1 more image

    This is the cheaper way of doing the Corregidor trip. Go to Villa Carmen in Cabcaben, Mariveles and ask for a banca for rent. A banca can accomodate 10 people (boatman included) and would cost around P900 to P1400. The rent includes life vest for each passenger and service to and from the island. The rate is fixed per banca so if there's only few of you to do the trip, you will have to pay bigger amount.

    If doing a day tour, it is important to leave early in the morning. Because Bataan peninsula is known for being shark infested and having big waves, you should be ready to leave the island before 4pm.

    Transpo to Corregidor

    by bdarusin Updated Mar 20, 2006

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Go to the pier at the CCP complex ( Roxas Blvd ) in Pasay. If you're commuting, from baclaran you can ride lawton bound bus or fx - they will pass by picc then you can just walk to the pier. There are also jeeps from vito cruz that goes into the CCP compund.
    Go to the SunCruises office where you can buy your tickets. It's better if you booked in advance.

    Just go to http://corregidorisland.com/gettingthere.html for the rest of the info

    A tour bus is used in touring around the island.

    During peak season, the day tour costs almost Php1,500

    Cruise to Corregidor

    by yellowbell Updated Aug 25, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Ferry

    From the Breakwaters of Manila Bay, a Sun Cruise ferry will take you to Corregidor, 48 kms. from Manila. Tour costs around P1,300 as of July 2004. Tour cost includes ferry to and from Corregidor, escorted tranvia ride around the island, and buffet lunch. One way ferry ride takes about an hour. It's an enjoyable ride since the ferry has an A/C. Look out for yachts docked.

    It's very convenient to ride the tranvia as you tour the island to see the Museum, Malinta tunnel, lighthouse, guns etc. Additional P 150 for the Light and Show at the Malinta Tunnel.

    First trip is at 8 am so please be early especially on weekends.

    Tram

    If you avail of the package tour, you will tour the island in style - on board this tram.

    But for "freebies" like us, we had to rent a jeepney and make a quick tour. Jeepney rental is good for 2 hours only.
