Because of its proximity to urban Cebu, most tourists take the opportunity of visiting both Cebu and Bohol. Supercat ferries ply the Cebu-Bohol routes daily, at 8am, 12pm, and 4pm. Arriving from Manila, we immediately went to Cebu’s sea port to purchase tickets to Tagbilaran City. The port has a new building but still has a lot of room for improvement especially if it will cater to more and more tourists.
There were already people lining up at the ticket booths. Although the lines were long, it took us a few minutes to buy our tickets which cost P450 (approximately $9) a person for a one-way trip. The trip was fast and peaceful. The ferry was a bit big, similar in size to the ferries plying the Hong Kong-Macau route. The boat was air-conditioned which made the journey more comfortable. Even during our return trip when a storm was looming at a distance, the trip was safe enough.
