    Smile The Bus From Dumaguete to Cebu

    The easiest way for me to travel between Dumaguete and Cebu is the direct bus, Ceres Lines runs the trip back and forth between Cebu and Dumaguete 5 times a day - you can see their schedule here : Cebu to Dumaguete Ceres Liner Bus Schedule

    They haul the bus on board the ferry, you have to leave the bus while crossing, but you can leave bulky luggage and stuff down in the bus.

    The bus cost around P200 and the ferry around P50 - so P250 from Cebu to Dumaguete by bus Cheap and easy.

    Wow...$5 for that trip? I ended up taking the SuperCat fast ferry from Cebu to Dumaguete, but knew there was a land trip option as well. The ferry was smooth and quite pleasant. Too bad SuperCat doesn't run any longer

    Both Weesam Express and Ocean Jet still ply the Dumaguete to Cebu route - So you should be able to take a boat still

    The bus ride from Dumaguete to Cebu is not that bad, it is a beautiful trip up the coastline of Cebu Island

    my family and just recently made a trip to Cebu via the uymatiao ferry (though we brought our own vehicle). coming back, we got to the port of Bato much earlier than we had estimated so we sat under a little mansanita tree facing the sea and had a few beers while waiting for the ferry to fill up and finally cross. it was the coolest thing
    i just love taking the long trip...

    I have heard of Weesam Express and Ocean Jet. Before visiting, I had read much about the dangers of taking slow ferries, so the SuperCat was an easy decision. My friend had told me about her overnight trips on a slow ferry and I cringed. I'm not much for being out in the water, so I wanted to spend as little time as possible out there. It didn't help that I read too many news stories and kept thinking there would be pirates or who knows what. Perhaps this is a problem further south, but certainly not between Dumaguete and Cebu

    Anyway, it's nice there is a land option for that route. I'm guessing it is much faster than a slow ferry, and probably much cheaper than a fast ferry.

    Weesam Expres and Ocean Jet are fast crafts too...

    2 hours sailing from Cebu toTagbilaran and then 2 hours from Tagbilaran to Dumaguete - the same as Supercat used to do.

    I took the Ocean Jet back and forth from Cebu to Bohol once, not a bad ride.

    Yeah, I knew those were fast ferries. The one photo I have seen of Ocean Jet looked like a miniature SuperCat.

    I wondered about the name "Weesam". That doesn't sound like a Filipino name to me. Where did they come up with that? SuperCat and Ocean Jet have sleek-sounding names. Weesam should have bought the SuperCat name

    Default Cebu to Dumaguete

    yeah Weesam Express is not exactly the sleekest sounding name, but I think their vessels looked nicer than Ocean Jet, so next time I am crossing over with one of them I will try Weesam Express.

    By the way, judging by your name am I correct in assuming you are indeed from Denmark originally? While it's interesting to hear natives write about their town I think it also adds some unique perspective to hear an ex-pat describe their experiences and observations.

    Honestly, when I first read your writings I figured you were a native, and didn't put a lot of thought into the user name. Those online names run the gamut. I'm using a Cebuano name, even though I'm just a typical white guy from America

    Anyway, this is a great site you have here (whether you are a native or not). Lots of information, to say the least

    Talking Dumaguete City

    Hi Kuya,

    Yes I am from Denmark originally, I lived in the Philippines the last 5 years though but just recently moved to Dumaguete.

    The reason we set up this web site is because when we were looking for a place to live we wanted to check out Dumaguete, and there was not really good source of information about the place, even when you pooled the other ressources together it was still not enough for me.

    I believe Dumaguete is a fast growing city and investors and businesses here will thrive and grow even faster, so why not set up a good and informative website for both tourists, professionals, students and everybody else that has an interest in Dumaguete City?

    Thanks for your nice words about the site, we have loads of content and features planned, this site is only a couple of months old really, so it is still very small
