Lite Shipping (Bato, Samboan-Dapitan Route)
Here’s a budget-friendly tip for adventurers and passengers heading to north of Mindanao!
Lite Shipping Ferry1 starts from Bato, Samboan (south of Cebu). From Cebu City, you will have to ride on a bus heading to Bato, Samboan. We actually ride on a Ceres Bus Liner. The fare would cost you Php 140.00-170.00. Don’t worry because the bus stops at the dock in Bato. AS you get there, you will get your ticket and have your name and age listed on a sheet.
Here are the shipping rates:
Economy (sitting) – Php 300.00
Economy (with cot) – Php 350.00
Tourist (air-conditioned sitting) – Php 400.00
Business (air-conditioned with cot) – Php 450.00
We paid for the economy (sitting) rate but we enjoyed having a cot because there were only few passengers during that time. ;-)
Be sure to arrive at Bato before 6:00pm because you might miss the trip. It will dock at around 11pm in Pulauan, Dapitan City.
