Our Drivers will safely bring you to Hagnaya Port (San Remigio). The Ride in the Car or in the Coach takes around 3-4 hours
Arrival at Hagnaya Port
When you get to Hagnaya Port, you will be approached by porters offering to carry your bags onto the ferry. If you need assistance, a fair price is around forty to fifty pesos per bag.
If you are ticketed to Hagnaya Port only, you will need to grab all of your belongings as you leave the bus, negotiate with porters if necessary, and then proceed inside to the ticket office.
Your dirver will purchase your Ferry Tickets. All passengers will need to purchase a ferry ticket to Santa Fe Port (Bantayan Island).
Ferry Ticket Prices and Schedules
There are two ferry companies that travel to Santa Fe from Hagnaya. One is Island Shipping and the other is Super Shuttle Ferry. The price of a regular-fare ticket (180 pesos) is the same and they both go to Santa Fe Port.
Sign the Manifest
Write your name on the manifest, which is usually on a clipboard, on a table near the ticket windows. The manifest is for accountability and insurance purposes so we recommend you put down at least semi-accurate information.
Pay the terminal fee (10 pesos) at the desk located immediately after the ticket windows.
Port Amenities + Services
If the ferry is not boarding right away, there is a nice waiting area with ample seating. Several vendors in the port sell barbecue, local food, and cold drinks.
Boarding the Ferry
As you are taking your seat on the ferry, several ladies will be selling banana-que (grilled bananas) and boko juice (coconut juice). It’s a delicious snack for the ride. Make sure you hold onto your ticket stub because they often check a second time after everyone is seated on the ferry.
Take note that the stairs on the ferry are a bit steep. Fifty pesos for a porter is a cheap price to pay to avoid straining yourself with heavy luggage.
Tax on “Cartons”
Another note is that if you are traveling with any type of cardboard box that could be considered as cargo, they may charge you an additional transportation fee at Hagnaya Port. Once you arrive on Bantayan Island, the Santa Fe Port personnel may also try to tax you for the “carton” as they call it. It’s best to put any type of brown cardboard box in a suitcase or a bag to avoid additional fees.
The Ferry Ride – Take Some Selfies
The ferry ride takes approximately one hour and fifteen minutes from ramp up to ramp down.
Sit on the left side of the ferry as you depart Hagnaya so you can take some photos of the colorful, local fishing boats moored along the coastline.
If you’re using Globe for your cell service and internet, typically you will have 4G LTE service the entire trip to Bantayan Island.
Amenities on the Ferry
There is a CR / restroom on the ferry. The ferry also has a small snack bar that serves chips and drinks.
