Camiguin Ferries – New Schedules
Camiguin Ferries do have a simple principle – either they sail or they do not. Now it seems that the Philippine Coast Guard has intensified their supervision of the ferry operations. The result should be more ferries sailing on time. Hope dies last!
When going to Camiguin, you have to rely on the Camiguin Ferries from Balingoan to Benoni. The trip lasts between 50 and 75 minutes when the sea is calm. But we already were shaken during 3 hours when the waves were high and water currents were strong.
It is said that the Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) is now heaving a closer look at the ferry operations in Camiguin. You may contact the PCG in Camiguin by e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org or by phone/text +63 (0)905-292-9327.
The ferries from Camiguin to Bohol operate on Monday, Wednesday and Friday . Their schedule is
Balbagon 8:00 a.m. – Jagna 11:00 a.m
Jagna 01:00 p.m. – Balingoan 04:00 p.m.
Travel time is about 3 hours. With a bit of chance you can observe dolphins and flying fishes

If you have to catch a flight in the morning from Laguindingan (Cagayan de Oro), we strongly recommend to travel to Cagayan de Oro the day before. Bad weather, a broken machine or any other reason may delay or cancel ferry trips.
During the Lanzones Festival in Camiguin, October 18-25, 2015 the ferries will be extremely crowded. You risk to have to wait several hours in the ports. Especially car transportation capacity will be very limited. We have seen cars queueing up for 12 and more hours.
