Port of Cebu

Cebu is a great starting point to explore the Philippines. From Cebu Port, the neighboring islands of Bohol, Dumaguete, Surigao, and Siquijor are easily accessible via ferry. Although not always the fastest option, traveling by sea is safe, affordable, and easy. This is especially true when you book your ferry tickets ahead of time


Use this Cebu Port guide to help you plan your travel itinerary in the Philippines. We detail the specific ferry companies, ferry routes, and port facilities at the Cebu Pier passenger terminals. 

How to Get to Cebu Port

Address: Quezon Boulevard, North Reclamation Area, Cebu City

From Mactan International Airport, you have several transport options. Take a cab straight to the port if you’re in a rush. Travel time should be 30-40 minutes on average. If there’s a traffic jam, you’ll be in transit for an hour or so. To commute, you may ride the MyBus to SM City Cebu. From there, take another MyBus that will take you directly to Pier 1. This option shouldn’t cost you more than 100 PHP per person. 

If you are returning from Oslob or Moalboal, there is a way to get to Cebu Port via public transport. From the South Bus Terminal or E-mall, you can ride an 02B jeepney. Ask the driver to let you off at the nearest pier you will be departing from. 

Port of Cebu Facilities


The Cebu Piers are fully air conditioned for your comfort. Please be advised that ticketing offices are located outside of the passenger terminals. Cebu Port has a strict “no ticket, no entry” policy. Due to the high volume of passengers, we suggest reserving tickets online to skip the long lines under the sweltering heat. 

Once inside the Cebu Port passenger terminals, you must pay a terminal fee of 25 PHP. For bulky luggage, stack them up on a trolley cart for easier navigation around the port. While waiting for your departure, you may buy food and drink from the food stalls. In some piers, there are money changers for foreign tourists looking for local currency. Of course, restrooms are available. In need of Wi-Fi? Connect to the port’s public wireless network.
