Bohol to Cebu by Ferry

Duration: 2 hours
Costs: 710 PHP ($13.50)

Taking the ferry is the fastest way to go from Bohol to Cebu. This is the very reason why most travellers prefer this option.

You can actually embark from Tubigon but most of the ferries operate in Tagbiliran, one of the more popular cities in the island of Bohol. For this reason, we make Tagbilaran as the main exit point.

Ocean Jet provides 14 trips daily. The ferries depart from Tagbilaran City Port Terminal and it takes about 2 hours before reaching Pier 1 in Cebu. Expect to pay 710 PHP ($13.50) to 1,350 PHP ($25) for a ferry ticket. The price depends on where you will be seated on the ferry.
