Apo Island: How to get there?

Going to Apo Island is easy. For visitors coming from Manila, daily flights are available from Manila to Dumaguete. From Cebu, daily ferries travel directly to Dumaguete.

From Dumaguete City, you may take the public bus going to Zamboanguita. The public bus’ route is as far as Bayawan City, so be sure to inform the bus driver to drop you off at the Malatapay Market, Zamboanguita. You can also hire vans, just negotiate for a good price.

From Malatapay Terminal, you can rent boats going to Apo Island. Be ready to get wet for a 45-minute boat ride. For a small group, medium-sized banca is available at P1,700 for a round-trip day service. Rental fee for a big boat is at P2,700.

Upon arrival at the Island, you have to register and pay a fee in support to the Apo Island Sanctuary. For non-Dauin resident, registration fee per adult is worth P100 and P10 for minors.
