What To Ride From Dumaguete to Cagayan de Oro City?

Thursday, October 20, 2011

Yes, you read it right? That's exactly my question! You see, the whole family will be on holiday this coming December. We will be visiting my husband's family in Dumaguete on December 19, stay there until the 26th and travel to Cagayan de Oro to visit my family. But how?

The only way is via Cebu Ferries (boat) but upon checking their website, they only have one trip per week and that's every Sunday. Now this is a problem! We have to be in Dumaguete on the 26th (Monday) because that is my hubby's birthday and we need to be in Cagayan de Oro on the 27th or 28th as we still have to travel around 4 hours to my hometown in Bukidnon. Oh no! How? Any brilliant idea to share here?

I can only think of traveling to Cebu first and perhaps stay there overnight with my Tita. Then fly again via Cebu Pacific or Philippine Airlines but I am sure it will be too costly. Perhaps, just go straight to the boat and sleep there overnight? I don't know! I have 2 months to think.

  1. Have you considered taking a ferry ride from Dumaguete to Iligan City? There is a Superferry Voyage which serves the route every Wednesday. It leaves Dumaguete at 7:15 AM and arrives at Iligan City at 1:30 PM the same day. Cagayan de Oro City is just an hour and a half away from Iligan City. Hope this helps! ^_^
