Loon Seaport

The Loon seaport is situated in Barangay Catagbacan Norte, Loon, Bohol. The Municipality of Loon is located in the western coast of the Bohol Province about 28 kilometers from Tagbilaran City, the lone city of Bohol and the capital of the province.

Northeast of Loon is the town of Calape; the municipality of Antequera is at its eastern highlands, and down south is the town of Maribojoc. From Catagbacan, crossing the Bohol Strait is the town of Argao of Cebu Province.

The Loon seaport, although small, often plays host to RORO and other vessels from Cebu City via Argao town and neighboring island barangays. Ship calls average only eleven (11) with an average of 246 tons of cargo per month.

Travelers from Cebu who want to have the added advantage of having their own vehicle when touring Bohol can take the RORO at Argao, Cebu (9.9492044 N, 123.6251306 E) for Loon, Bohol. The RORO vessels can accommodate cars and even buses. The voyage takes more or less two (2) hours.

The port is now being envisioned as a “cruise port” by Pres. Gloria M. Arroyo in her program: Strong Republic Nautical Highway (SRNH) of the Philippine Government. At present, berthing capacity is limited and vessels have to wait for quite a while before they can dock.

The Philippine Ports Authority (PPA) is setting aside some funds for the rehabilitation of the Port which is considered as the gateway of vehicles from Cebu to Manila via the Ubay-Leyte-Samar-Sorsogon-Cubao route; and also to all points of Mindanao via Ubay-Surigao and vice versa.

For the sixth port, the Port of Loon, sea passengers will now have a more comfortable experience after the DOTr and PPA completed the construction of its Passenger Terminal Building.
