| Transportation to and from Puerto Galera
Puerto Galera can only be reached via land routes from Manila to Batangas. After completion of the so-called Sky Way near Manila and the partial completion of the new highway from Tanuan to Lipa City the travel time to Batangas has been considerably reduced. However a travel time to Batangas Pier of two hours from Manila has to be counted with.
From Batangas there are several ferryboat services that can bring their passengers to Puerto Galera in one or two hours, depending on the choice of ferry.
Relatively spoken a little more expensive, but without doubt
is the Sikat Ferry and Bus Services. They transport their passengers by bus, coaster or van (depending on demand) directly to Batangas Pier, where the ferries can be boarded almost immediately. Since there are no stopovers and no waiting time for the ferryboats, they are definitely the fastest and the most convenient way to get to and from Puerto Galera:

At Batangas Pier there is a wide choice of ferries going to Puerto Galera. Usually the first departure is around 07:30 AM and the last ferry leaves at about 4:00 PM. After that one could hire an outrigger boat or banca with prices often ranging from P 3.500,--per banca.
