airport to oceanjet pier

hi,

we will be arriving in Cebu at around 8am. we are planning to catch the 9:30am Ocean Jet ferry to Tagbilaran.

Given that it will be a weekday(Wed), is it advisable to take a taxi from airport to the Pier?

and also, given that it is a weekday, will it be better to take the Cebu-Mactan Ferry? If so, how far will this terminal be to the Ocean Jet Pier?

thanks!

If your flight arrive on time you have a favorable chance to catch the 9:30am ferry. You will find out that Cebu taxi drivers are more willing to turn on the meter unlike their counterparts in Kuala Lumpur.

Take a taxi to Ocean Jet pier. As mentioned by Keg, if your aircraft is on time and no luggage delay, you still stand a chance to catch the ferry.

If you still miss it, you can try Supercat.

Take a taxi to the pier.

When you reach there first time, it is confusing at the pier... which ferry to take... which one leaves first... and it is some distance from the port gate to the ferry. best take a taxi

the ferry pier is close to the airport. just a few minutes-- 15 min--definitely under 30 mins.you still will need a taxi. i have taken both ocean jet and supercat--both good.

Even if your flight is delayed for 10 mins. you have a big chance to catch the 9:30am ferry if you take the taxi (not anything else) straight to the terminal of Oceanjet. You may take the Cebu-Mactan ferry if you have the luxury of time and you also need to take a taxi to reach the ferry terminal.

guess most of the advisors are in favor of taking the taxi...i was just a bit concerned as it would be rush hour and i heard that traffic in cebu is bad...

thanks all...

sad to say ocean jet doesn't want to sell us the 930am tickets as they said we need to check in 45 mins before the ETD and mostly the flights to cebu are delayed...can anyone advise me on this?

it is quite frustrating as we already booked a packaged tour in bohol...

if we can't make it to the 930am ferry, any advise on how to spend approximately 4 hours in Cebu while we wait for the next ferry to depart?

just take the taxi to the terminal and hopefully you can still buy tickets at the oceanjet terminal for the 930am. If you can't catch that trip, just go to SM mall which is nearby (5 minutes by taxi).
