Tabaco to Catanduanes : Ferry Schedule and Fare Rates


If you are already in the Bicol Region and you want to visit Catanduanes, you may go to Tabaco, Albay and take a ferry from there to Virac or San Andres in the province of Catanduanes. The ferry schedule is not 24 hours so you must take note of the trips so you will have less waiting time in the port. (Read: 10 Things to Do in Catanduanes)

Here are the ferry schedule and fare from Tabaco, Albay to Catanduanes and vice-versa:

Tabaco Port to Virac Port:
Eugenia Ferry: 6:00AM - 11:40AM

Tabaco Port to San Andres Port:
Calixta Ferry: 7:00AM to 11:00PM
Silangan Fast Craft: 12:00PM to 1:30PM

Virac Port to Tabaco:
Eugenia Ferry: 1:00PM to 5:00PM

San Adres Port to Tabaco Port:
Calixta Ferry: 1:00PM - 4:30PM
Silangan Fast Craft: 7:00AM - 8:30AM

Fare varies from P150-P300 for the RORO. The fare for the FastCraft is at P320.

Schedule may change sometimes without prior notice so it's better to be early at the port. Travel time to and from San Andres is shorter than in Virac. If you are in a hurry, I suggest you take the San Andres route. There are a lot of vans and jeepneys from the port to Virac, Pandan and other parts of Catanduanes.
