Ferries to Bohol

Getting to Bohol by Sea

The Tagbilaran seaport is the main port of Bohol and accommodates large commercial passenger and cargo vessels from Luzon, Visayas, and Mindanao.

The port of Tubigon is located approximately 53.6 kilometers northwest of Tagbilaran, almost adjacent to Cebu City. It is a very busy port with ferries plying the Tubigon-Cebu City route. It is a major choice of travelers bound for Cebu and vice versa because of its numerous boat schedules. Travel time takes more or less two hours depending on boat type.

The port of Talibon is located on the northern coast of Bohol, about 114.8 kilometers from Tagbilaran City via the north road, 149.55 kilometers via the east road, and 108.83 kilometers via the interior road. The port serves travelers that hail from Cebu City as well as from its 8 island barangays and vice versa.

The port of Jagna is located on the southern coast of Bohol, about 63 kilometers from Tagbilaran City. Once the hub of maritime activities, now the port only services travelers to and from Cagayan de Oro, Butuan, and Nasipit and vice versa. With the completion of the 60.4M Jagna Port expansion project, commerce is expected to pick up.

The port of Ubay is located at Tapal, Ubay. Ubay is a municipality situated on the northeastern seaboard of the province 123 kilometers from Tagbilaran City. The port is a principal gateway to Leyte. Bus trips are available from Manila via Quezon Province, passing by the Mayon Volcano, then to Sorsogon and crossing the sea on board a RORO boat to Samar, on the San Juanico Bridge to Leyte, then to Bohol via RORO. Bus trips also ply the route from Mindano via Southern Leyte.

The port of Loon is located on the western coast of Bohol, about 27.4 kilometers from Tagbilaran City. It is specifically situated in the barrio of Catagbacan. The town of Argao on the island of Cebu is just across it. RORO vessels ply between Loon and Argao.

The port of Getafe is located on the northern coast, about 92 kilometers from Tagbilaran City. Getafe is nearest to Cebu City and many large outrigger boats ply the Getafe-Cebu City route daily.

There are other seaports along the coast from Loon to Getafe. The Asinan Port of Buenavista, the Daet River Quay and Inabanga Port in Inabanga, and the port of Clarin are primarily designed for smaller vessels such as motorized bancas or outrigger boats and fishing boats
