Fast Ferry Schedules: Cebu to Bohol & Vice Versa

Last Updated: August 31, 2016
Fast ferry is the most convenient and fastest way to get to Bohol from Cebu or the other way around.  It only takes an hour or two, depending on which port you want use. There are two ports in Bohol: Tagbilaran & Tubigon, and in Cebu there are four piers, assigned to specific shipping lines. Sailing via Tubigon port is much cheaper and faster than Tagbilaran. 

Please note that these schedules are subject to change without prior notice. It is advisable that you contact the shipping line directly to check on the updated schedules. The assigned Pier for specific shipping line is indicated in the ticket and even posted at the ticketing office.

Important Notice:
  • No reservation or advance booking. Tickets can only be bought at their ticketing booth at Pier 1 & Pier 3.
  • No I.D. presented, no discount.
  • They issue the ticket & receipt manually so it's really slow. Most of the locals use this shipping line so there's a tendency for a long line. Make sure to go there at least 15 minutes prior to the trip schedule to make sure you get the ticket. Otherwise, you will wait until the next trip.
