Camiguin – Bohol with Super Shuttle Ferry 21

Camiguin - Bohol with Super Shuttle Ferry 21

This week we travelled Camiguin – Bohol with Super Shuttle Ferry 21. The ferry’s schedule is unchanged Monday, Wednesday and Friday.

Like many other ferries swimming between the Philippines Islands, the Shuttle Ferry 21 had been built and operated in Japan as Marushima Princess. Most of the panels and signs are still in Japanese language. The ship is still in very good condition and sails at around 20 km/h or 11 knots. Yesterday we encountered rough seas but the ferry behaved well. Have a look:

Worse were the stomachs of many tourists. They arrived empty in Balbagon – Camiguin…

This schedule seems to be maintained until end of January 2017. But it might be changed without prior notice. We strongly recommend to call one of the above numbers to make sure that the ferry is sailing when you need it. In Jagna you should call 0916 568 2236.

The Rumors

Again we heard the rumors of a fast RoRo ferry between Jagna and Balbagon in the near future. The guard in Balbagon port told me that the new ferry should start service in the second week of October. When I told him that were already in the second week he meant “next week, maybe, Sir”. Haha! But the coast guard officer over in Jagna also had gotten word of this super fast RoRo ferry. Unfortunately nobody has real information. Maybe a dream soon becomes true. Here is a movie of the dream …

    Hi, we want to know if we can take a Ferry from camiguin to Bohol on Friday 3th of February at 8:00 or earlier. Can we reserve??Thanks

      Hello and happy New Year.
      It isn’t possible to book in advance, even in the evening before the trip you’re told to come early next morning.
      Our today’s inquiry shows that the ferry is operating every day as scheduled.
      But have an eye on the weather.
      Winter depressions can make the sea rough and keep the ferry in port.

      CHeers, waebi

      • Javier Mora says:

        at what time is the first ferry in the morning? how long does the trip take? Thanks

        • waebi says:

          There is only one ferry per day-
          It leaves Balbagon at 8:00 a.m.
          From Jagna it leaves at 1:00 p.m.

          Yesterday and today no ferry because of high waives.
          Cheers, waebi

            Hi waebi,

            We’re planning to go to Camiguin this Sunday; so I guess it’s best that we call the port before leaving CDO on the day itself.

            May we know of any contacts/phone numbers in Balingoan and/or Benoni ports to know if trips are cancelled for the day? Or will the coast guard office ( suffice?

            Thanks in advance!

          • waebi says:

            Hi Elly,

            There are no problems with the Balingoan – Benoni route. Ferries sail from 05:30 a.m. to around 5:00 p.m.
            Only last Tuesday the waves had been too high. About 10 feet is too much for this coastal ferries.
            But be careful on the road. A truck driver who came from CdO told me yesterday, that there were some smaller landslides.
            I would expect more than the usual 2 hours from CdO to Balingoan.

            Cheers, waebi

          • Elly says:

            Hi waebi,

            Noted on your reply. My tour contacts have been telling me that they’re still running business as usual, and we’ve spent a chunk of money in downpayments and stuff so we can’t simply let go with those unless going there would entail more risks. So I guess I’ll have to rely from the weather forecasts moving forward and adjust our schedules.

            Thanks a lot! 🙂

    I need to go from Camiguin to Bohol on April 12th, during Holy Week.
    is there any way to book in advance? or only to hope i will be lucky to find a seat?
    thank you!

    • waebi says:

      Hello and Happy New Year,
      Here in the Philippines one never knows what happens tomorrow.
      Super Shuttle Ferry is a bit complicated.
      You can’t book trips in Camiguin even the day before.
      They say: “Come early tomorrow morning”.

      The Camiguin – Bohol ferry is usually not fully booked.
      If you travel without a car, then you almost surely get a ticket.
      With a car it can get tight around Easter, Lanzones festival and Christmas.

      Sorry for this vague answer, but this is one of our problems here in Camiguin

      Cheers, waebi

    Is the boat between Camiguin and Jagna still running?


    Best regards

    • waebi says:

      Hi Wim,

      Yes it is still running at the usual schedules. Please see below.
      But in the last 3 weeks we often had high waves. SO the ferry could only sail 2 or 3 times a week.
      Please check weather forecast before traveling.

      Cheers, waebi

      • Wim Vangeel says:

        Thanks! We will certainly do that!


      • Jaap says:

        Hi Waebi,

        Does the ferry still operate daily in November 2017?

        • waebi says:

          Hi Jaap,
          Currently the ferry is sailing only Mon, Wed and Fri.
          When there should come a change in schedule, I’ll post it here and elsewhere.
          Cheers, waebi

            Hi Danilo,
            This is a blog in English language. OK?
            But to help you, there should be a ferry on November 1 because it’s a Wednesday.
            To make sure, we recommend to call one of the phone numbers presented in above article.
            Cheers, waebi

  10. Eden says:

    Thank you.

  11. Kristina says:


    Do you know if ferry will operate on 30th of march friday (but it is a public holiday on Philippines – Good Friday, Easter).


    • waebi says:

      Hello Kristina,
      Super Shuttle Ferry has currently 6 ferries on Camiguin island.
      So it is very probable that the Bo.hol – Camiguin ferry will operate during Holy Week.
      Cheers, waebi
