Our Cebu-Bohol Trip: Day 2-Trip to Bohol via Fastcraft, August 29

After a great and lovely wedding reception dinner at Shangri-la Mactan Resort and Spa of the Ouano and Nogoy Nuptial. We woke up very early the next day, August 29, 2011 to catch the fastcraft first trip to Tagbilaran City at 6AM. But unluckily, when we arrived at Pier 1, OceanJet Terminal, the 6AM trip was already fully booked! We were unable to book our tickets in advance due to our busy itinerary upon arrival in Cebu the previous day.

So we decided to try our luck at Pier 2, for the Super Cat 8:30 AM trip but also it was fully booked. Our last option was at the nearby Weesam Express which first trip is at 9AM.

Fastcraft regular fares (economy) of all the shipping companies going to Tagbilaran City are almost the same at Php 500.00 per pax, business class is a little bit higher at around Php 650.00 per pax. And the terminal fee is Php 25.00 per pax.

While waiting for our 9AM trip, we had our light breakfast at Tyke's Cafe inside the Weesam Express terminal. We ordered chorizo meal and longganisa meal, prices are reasonable at below Php 100. each order.

After 3 hours of waiting, the fastcraft already arrived at the terminal and we boarded at past 9AM. Travel time is at average 2 hours.

The sea travel was calm and fast, though some says that the fastest travel time to Tagbilaran City from Cebu via fastcraft is only 1 hour and 30 minutes.

After our arrival at the Port of Tagbilaran, we immediately purchased our return tickets to ensure our travel back to Cebu the following day.
