Weesam 2pm from TAG to CEB?

I see on the Weesam page that this ferry is cancelled. Is that right? It is the best time for my trip (I need to catch a 6:30pm flight in Mactan), and I am staying at Bellevue Resort on Panglao. Any other suggestions to maximize time at the resort and get to the flight timely?

In a perfect scenario the 2:00pm ferry is feasible but nothing is perfect. If I were you and you don't want possible headaches I will take a morning trip to factor in possible delays because of weather or heavy traffic.

Again, leave the day before that is the best advice.

If on the day of your departure and there is a heavy storm, there is a chance that the ferry service will be suspended.

So the result is you are going to miss your flight.

Also, do not rely too much on schedule. Philippines transport schedule is very dynamic; it changes as and when they deem fit.

Never ever trust a boat to get you to a plane on time.

Worse than that, your 2pm boat would get you to the city in peak afternoon traffic and you might spend a couple of hours getting to the airport.

I personally would be in Cebu City the night before but for you, at the very least, you want to depart Tagbilaran in the morning.

Even the fastest boats are not that reliable. I had to attend a symposium in Macau and I was 2 hours late because I overtrusted the efficiency of Turbojet in Hong Kong. Mother nature always has the last say.
