Please keep in mind that the shipping lines do not update their schedules regularly and even on their websites you often find outdated information. We try to provide the latest information for you as we travel the country and collect all data available:D

Bangka from Padre Burgos (Leyte) to Limasawa Island (Leyte):

01:00 PM

There is no ferry serving that route, but only a bigger bangka (typical Philippine boat); keep in mind that the bangka might be cancelled if the sea is too rough and the waves are to high! Last time (August 12, 2013) we were not able to go on our trip to Limasawa Island due to the windy weather.

Ferry from Liloan (Leyte) to Surigao City (Mindanao):

07:00 AM
06:00 PM
09:00 PM

    • Hi Hans,

      thank you for your comment. I know that website and was also using that information; the problem is only that the data is not updated and full of wrong connections – that is also why I started to collect all availabe ferry-connections here and want to keep them up to date;)
