best way to get to Siquijor?

we are planning to visit in 2 weeks and I am wondering what is the best way to get there.

Should we fly into Cebu and take the fast boat or is it possible to fly into Tagbilaran (bohol) and take a boat from there?

are both these boats daily? how long does it take from each place? how choppy is the water?

thanks!

faith, Siquijor Island is wonderful and a 'must see' if you appreciate a laid-back island full of history and beautiful, uncrowded beaches.

Here is a link to Filipino ferry times. Some (not all) services from Dumaguete City to Siquijor or Larena are listed:

Both Cebu Pacific and Philippine Airlines fly from Manila to Dumaguete City twice daily when I last checked, with Cebu Pacific also flying three times a week from Cebu's Mactan International Airport.

As what Victorianlad said, I would also agree that you should fly to Dumaguete and ride a ferry to Siquijor. Yes, the ferry runs daily at least 3x throughout the day.
