About Apekop Travel Boat Service
Not a lot of commuters are familiar with Apekop Travel. Despite being a humble service provider, they have been operating the Panglao to Oslob route since 2018. The vessel they use is not a ferry, nor is it a small outrigger boat. It’s somewhat a cross between the two—Apekop Travel uses a high speed mini boat with a comfort room on board.
Instead of using formal ports, Apekop uses the beaches of Panglao and Oslob to dock and depart. As such, prepare to get your feet wet when embarking and disembarking. This may be uncomfortable to some, but traveling from beach to beach has its perks too! It cuts down travel time to just 90 minutes. The Panglao to Oslob and Oslob to Panglao boat service is available every day.
