    Island Hop

    3.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    There is only one way to get to Potipot Island - by motorized wooden boat/banca. Travel time between the "mainland" and the island is around 7 minutes.

    Standard round trip fare is P400 per boat upto a maximum of 6 persons per trip. The normal practice is to arrange a pick up time with the boatman before or upon reaching the island. Payment is given when you are back at the mainland.

    Usad Boats

    by cyndymc Updated Apr 11, 2009

    To go to Potipot Island, you will have to get a "banca"/boat from a beach resort. We got ours from Dawal Beach Resort. They call their boats "Usad" which, in the vernacular means "move ahead"). The Usad boat can bring you to Potipot Island in 3-5 minutes, depending on the weather. We reached Potipot in 3 minutes only.

    The Usad boats will fetch you upon your notice via text (yes, ther are cell phone signals, unlike in Anawangin, Capones & Camara) to the front desk staff of Dawal Beach Resort. Or, on the way to Potipot, you can tell your boatman directly what time you'd like to be fetched.

    I noticed that the the Usad boats were true to their name. They were the fastest to fetch tourists; indeed, they move ahead :)

    Tricycle

    by cyndymc Written Apr 11, 2009

    As in other towns in Zambales, the tricycle is the most common mode of transportation. They pass not only the small side treets, they also pass the national highway. You can hail them when you alight from the bus, and just give instructions where you'd like to be transported.
