    From Airport to Bongao Town Proper

    by LexP Written Sep 25, 2012

    Take a Tricycle infront of the Airport to Bongao Town Proper. Fare for the journey is 100.

    However from the Town to the Airport, you can pay at least 70 pesos.

    Make sure to prepare your camera as you will pass through some amazing scenery

    Flying to Tawi-tawi

    by edwinic Written Mar 12, 2010

    Seair has flights from Zamboanga-Jolo-Tawitawi but you have to check the website for updates

    Flight time is a little over an hour (this could be due to stopover in Jolo.

    I am putting this for my future reference as well.

    (and I hate the woman in the picture, she seem headed for bed and not to travel)

    Fly Seair

    by bike_packer Written Dec 26, 2005

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There's a small airport in Bongao, Tawi-tawi and is serviced by a small plane when coming from Zamboanga City in mainland Mindanao. Seair, the airline, flies an 18-seater twin-prop airplane for their daily flights. Low-flying, the airplane gives the passengers an awesome view up above of never-ending string of islands rimmed with corals and white sandy shores during the one-hour flight.

    Leave out the nervous and scary feeling when the plane gets to go through the clouds and rain when the weather is incooperative. I should know cause I've been there >> the smallest plane I ever took, and the worst flying experience for me in my whole life.

    Weesam Express - Fastcraft

    by bike_packer Written Dec 22, 2005

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Weesam Express plies the Zamboanga-Sandakan route twice a week making in-between stops at Jolo, Sulu and at Bongao, Tawi-tawi. The Zamboanga-Bongao trip takes about 8 hrs while the Bongao-Sandakan Malaysia trip takes about 4 1/2 hrs.

    This is generally a passenger ferry and carry-on cargoes by the passengers are limited. Airconditioned cabin and comfortable seats. In-house video entertainment and a mini snackbar.

    Zamboanga-Tawitawi First Class accomodation at P1540.
