1. Re: roro schedules and rates

As far as I am aware, there are no boats that travel from any point on Negros direct to any point on Leyte. However, there are a whole bunch of options via Cebu. Give me an idea where you are travelling from and to and I will give you my thoughts on the cheapest way.

Do you mean you want to go from Negros to Mindanao or Leyte to Mindanao

Regardless,

Here is my list of transport companies operating in the Philippines.

You can use it to check individual shipping websites. There is also a couple of links to boat schedule websites.

thanks, it looks like it would be best to use escalante-tabeulan and then bogo to palompon to avoid the city, but still no info on prices

Never done escalante-tabeulan so can't give schedule or price for it but I can for Bogo Palompon.

Bogo Palompon RORO is once per day. It departs Palompon every morning at 8am and arrives in Bogo about 10.30am. Then departs Bogo at 1.30pm and arrives Palompon about about 4pm

The rate is P200 in economy (sitting outside) and P300 for tourist (sitting inside with aircon).

Here is a video of the RORO

In case there is any helpful information you can glean about travelling in Northern Cebu, here is my trip report from December

Sorry, I don't have information for Allen Matnog.

I presume you mean Lipata, not Lapitan.

I have travelled from Liloan to Lipata. If you search for Lipata, you may do better

Here is the schedule according to schedule.ph

schedule.ph/boat/…Lipata

In Surigao City, I stayed at Firmas Lodging House but it would be too low class for most foreigners.

I have not stayed in Tacloban for many years however, I believe I would stay here next time

Never been to Legazpi

Good day! Me and my friends are going to Boracay on August 15. Our flight back to Manila would be August 17. We are planning to extend our stay to August 19 and would choose to have RORO as our ride to Manila instead of plane. Our problem is, we don't know where to find the Terminal for this RORO. Please do reply, or also message me @ Facebook or via text 09162051444. Thanks!!! :)
