Ferry Schedule from Puerto to Mangingisda Pier

UPDATE AUGUST 15, 2014

Sorry to say the Ferry Boats are no longer following the schedule listed here. But the ferries do still run daily. The last one from Maningisda to the Fish Port at Baywalk is around 4pm.

There ferry boats leave from downtown Fish Port by the Baywalk. It's just before Unitop Grocery and Department store. A small little alley.

The ferries will usually wait for the boats to be full before departing, so the times are not exact.  Also, if you ask one ferry boat what the last boat is from either side...they will only tell you THEIR schedule and not the schedule of the other boats. Cooperation between ferries seems to be non-existent. So don't believe it if they tell you the last boat time of the day for ALL ferries. They are only saying the last schedule for their particular bangka ferry.

Case in point; we had a visitor arrive on one ferry yesterday, when he asked what time the last ferry to Puerto was, they said 3pm, when in fact another ferry was at the dock at 4:30pm.


This is the schedule for ALL ferries to and from Puerto Princesa and Mangingisda Pier.
This is one of the ferry bangkas. They do provide
life vests on board.

The locals, kids especially, love to swim off the dock at Mangingisda Pier. It's clean enough that when it's too hot, we do the same. I think trike drivers can also take passengers to Puting Buhangin Beach if you like white sand and wide open spaces to splash around in. No services at Puting Buhangin, so if you go there,bring everything. 
Across the bay from Puerto Princesa.
The Fish port at Mangingisda Pier. Everyday around 5:30 to 6:20am or so, the fishermen sell their wares on the dock. Wide angle shot with a GoPro Hero2 cam.
When it's cloudy, the photo ops at Mangingisda Pier are fabulous if you like sunsets.
This is Puting Buhangin beach, accessible from the Maniningisda Pier via trike once you get off the ferry.
