How to Get to Camiguin from Cebu

Written on

If you're traveling to Camiguin from Cebu, you're in luck. There are two modes of transportation available for you: plane and ferry.

1. Plane

Budget carrier Cebu Pacific now offers flights to and from the island, 2 or 3 times a week. The flight takes less than an hour, making it the fastest and the most convenient way to get to Camiguin from Cebu.

How much does it cost?

Ticket prices varies every week. To date, the lowest price (Promo Fare) I've seen is PHP 399.00. After taxes and other fees, this will total to around PHP 1,000. It can reach up to PHP 6,000 on Lanzones Festival season.

How do I book a flight?

You can get a ticket from any of the following:

Getting there

The plane leaves Mactan Cebu International Airport at 6:10 AM and arrives in Camiguin Airport at 7:00 AM.

 2. Ferry

Every Friday 8:00 PM, a ferry leaves for Camiguin from Cebu. It's slow, taking between 12 to 15 hours, depending on the weather, to reach the island.

How much does it cost?

A one-way ticket cost PHP 800 to PHP 1,000.

How do I get a ticket?

You can buy a ticket at any Super Shuttle Ferry outlets in malls.

The whole Cebu Port is divided into several numbered ports. The ferry bound for Camiguin is docked in Port 8. You need to take a cab to get there.
