Ferries between Caticlan and Boracay

Can anyone tell me what time the first ferry runs in the morning from boracay back to caticlan? Trying to work out if we can make our 6:50 flight to Manila in time!

Thanks!

Is there a schedule anywhere?

Would it be best to get there like 30 minutes early to tickets and loading?

Boats service this route very frequently so whenn you arrive hop on the next one departing.

Otherwise you can pre book with South West who will organise your transfers.

You can take it as the first sun ray shine on Boracay, the ferry will start running.

For your info, Philippines sunrise can be as early as 0500hrs!

Mousehunt - what answer is this on specific question? And what means "Philippine sunrise can...". Does it now or in August or November. Are you aware that there is a difference in sunrise of a little more than an hour between December and July? Yes.

So what is now hanna_banana8 to do? Go at 5 to the jetty port and wait for the Philippine sunrise? And if the sunrise is at 5:45 and the flight at 6:45? Wait until the day when the sun rises at 5?

Hay....

Hanna_Banana8: if you're at the jetty port in Boracay at 5:15 you will be before 6 AM in Caticlan from where you take a tricycle to the airport. All is very near and no long lines at that time.

The easiest is, as suggested, to book the whole trip by Southwest Tours. They pick you up and bring you in time to the airport - for a fee of course

Ive used South West several times and they are great. I could easily do it myself, its costs more but just wanted a hassle free pre organised transfer.
