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.

|The agents who worked under lite shipping company at lite port center last april 8, 2018 are very incompetent and had the worst customer service. mularga ang barko alas 12 sa udto, isyuhan kag ticket 11:40 am. wala man mo gahuna huna intawn nga layo pa ang pier. Hinay kaau ang mga emplayado mu isyu ug mga ticket. naay isa ka impliyado alas 11 na misulod sa trabaho and its takes 10 to 15 mins before maka issue ug ticket kay murag galibog kon unsaon niya iyang trabaho. Pls train you employee how to make things fast because we value out time. The girl at counter 4 nasuko pa sya nga giingnan ug pagdali day kay mabiyaan intawn me sa barko. bundakan paka inag sukli. Train you people Lite shipping managers and supervisors.|
