The Jagna Seaport is located on the southern coast of Bohol, about 63 kilometers east of Tagbilaran City. The port is part of Jagna town a 4th class municipality of the province with a population of more or less 32,000 people spread in 33 barangays.
Jagna is considered as the gateway portal to Mindanao. The island of Camiguin, with the silhouette of Mt. Hibok-Hibok, is visible. Trips to Camiguin are done by large outrigger boats. Large ferries and cargo ships dock at the port from other islands. At present though, only trips from Mindanao, specifically from Butuan, Nasipit and Cagayan de Oro, are available.
The pier is connected to the mainland by a 106 meters cemented rock causeway. The total port area is 6,500 square meters. The pier is38 meters with berth at 85 meters; depth alongside or draft is 5 meters and there are three (3) clusters of fender piles having 7 pieces per cluster. For mooring and fixtures, there are two (2) bollards and two (2) cleats.
The port has a total open storage of 440 square meters; a lighthouse; and lighting facilities of two (2) lamp posts inside the port.
Cargo handling, trucking, hauling, cargo checking, mooring and unmooring is done by the Jagna Arrastre Terminal Services, Inc. (JATSI); bunkering by Lugod Bunkering Services; watering services by Philippine Sinter Corporation and Lugod Fresh Water Supply.
Jagna was once the main hub of maritime activities in Bohol; but due to the upgrading of other ports of Bohol, such as Ubay and Tagbilaran, the volume of passengers dwindled. Even those who travel to Camiguin take the Tagbilaran-Cagayan-Balingoan route. One reason may also be that ready access to other towns is lacking. Public vehicles such as vans or buses are not readily available so travelers opt for Tagbilaran instead.
Year 2007 sees the start of a new era for Jagna. On May 9, 2007, the Jagna Port expansion project was inaugurated. This will surely boost up economic development in the town and the whole Bohol province for that matter. Port improvement was started last April 12, 2006 and finished on March 27, 2007.
Spending P60.4 million, the project involved the demolition and disposal of the reinforced concrete wharf, the widening of the rock causeway, construction of a reinforced concrete wharf extension and provision of mooring and fendering system.
Being a strategic point that links the Visayas to Mindanao, Jagna is part of the Strong Republic Nautical Highway (SRNH) system conceptualized by the government to interconnect by land and sea the island provinces of the country through RORO, cargo vessels, ferry boats, and fast crafts in order to enhance investment opportunities, agro-industrial development, trade and commerce and tourism pursuits.
Jagna is one of the 17 priority projects out of 28 port projects that the President has identified in her SRNH program.
