2018 CERES SCHEDULES Cebu to Bantayan / Bantayan to Cebu

Bantayan Island, a popular attraction and tourist destination in the Visayan region. To get there, you could either drive yourself to Hagnaya port where you will board the ferry to Sta. Fe or, if you don’t have your own vehicle, just ride a Ceres bus from Cebu city to Bantayan. The bus starts at the Cebu North Bus Terminal and there are 8 trips every day. However, they also have these ‘backup’ trips which I have never ridden before. Probably to accommodate extra passengers on a busy day.

Coming from Mactan Airport? Read this article on how to get to the North Bus Terminal.

Waiting for ferry at Hagnaya port

The Ceres bus schedules in this article are for trips both from Cebu to Bantayan and from Bantayan to Cebu. I’ve included the fare which may change without prior notice so make sure to bring extra money. Issuance of tickets starts 2 hours before departure. I will update the schedules whenever I am at the Cebu North Bus Terminal and if there are any changes.

The total fare for Cebu to Bantayan and Bantayan to Cebu is ₱410.00, ₱230 for the bus and ₱180 for the ferry. Again, this may change so make sure to bring more than that amount.

Other important reminders:

  • There are no priority numbers
  • No reservation of seats
  • First come, first served

What if I missed the last trip?

There’s also a Sugbo Transport bus to Hagnaya from the Cebu North Bus Terminal. But it will only drop you off at the port. You will have to ride the ferry to Sta. Fe, Bantayan Island yourself. Sugbo Transport bus fare from Cebu City to Hagnaya is ₱170 for regulars and ₱140 for students and senior citizens. I am not sure of their schedule though.
