How to Get Out of Marinduque

I posted a blog on how to get to Marinduque recently and visitors might need a guide on how to get out. Getting in is easy but getting out is a piece of cake since there's only one port that operates, the Balanacan port.

From your location, take a tricycle and tell the driver that you are bound for Balanacan port.  He might take you to the highway since the jeepney passes by there or take you directly to the jeepney terminal going to Balanacan. Fare is the same as what you paid when you first arrived.

Please note that jeepney driver drives slowly because they kind of wait for more passengers or that there's another jeepney ahead. One of my friends said, it's as slow as the man on a bicycle selling pandesal. The supposed to be 2 hours travel time takes more or less 3 hours.

However,  be prepared when they find out that that there's another jeepney behind going to Balanacan, because they drive really, really fast.

When you get to Balanacan Port, buy a ferry/RoRo ticket going to Dalahican, same price as you pay getting in. Pay the Php22.00 terminal fee and head on to the waiting area.

At the Balanacan ticketing booth and terminal, you have an option too to buy a bus ticket (Jac Liner & Jam Liner).  They sell it at a discounted price, Php219.00 up to Cubao. Don't worry because they are legitimate seller. They will give you a temporary ticket until you ride the bus.

Upon arriving at the Dalahican Port in Lucena, take the specific bus and when ask by the conductor give him the temporary ticket, he will then issue the official ticket.

I hope this helps. Let me know should you have questions. :)
