IJsselstein, Saturday, 16 July 2005 (updated: Monday, 23 May 2016)
A large number of regular ferries connect Bohol with the other islands of the Philippines. They are the cheapest way to travel from island to island, and hence can be very crowded during high season (just before the Holy Week or Christmas).
This list is far from exhaustive, and schedules tend to change often, especially with the smaller shipping companies. If you have additional information, please tell us, so that we can share it here.
When you go to Bohol from Cebu, you have to head to Pier 3 to go to Tubigon, or Pier 1 or 4 to go to Tagbilaran. Note that the route via Tubigon is normally cheaper (also by fastcraft), and can be faster, even when going to Tagbilaran, if you take a V-hire or bus from Tubigon to Tagbilaran.
For other destinations, fares, promo rates, vehicle rates and precise schedule, please check out the shipping websites indicated below or call them directly.

|Mae Adem, Medallion transport has this route only one trip per 9:00 am only. from Bato,Leyte to Ubay, Bohol. First come first serve, so better call Medallion Transport for reservation one day before your departure date. Sorry I have Ubay tel. number only but you can call them to have Bato's office tel. number. (Ubay tel. number +639429897093) not sure if they still using this number.|
