Maxboat Marine set to launch Cebu’s first WaterBus / WaterTaxi

Things are getting more interesting in Cebu. With the seaplane service launched recently to shorten travel trips to Bantayan or Camotes, there’s another mode of transportation to look forward to. This new Sea Transport Service called the WaterBus, a.k.a. the WaterTaxi, will soon operate in the Queen City of the South.

Maxboat Marine, the builder of the Waterbus, aims to help the Cebuanos pass through traffic by cruising from coast to coast around Cebu. It will be operated by the Seals Group of Companies – a renowned shipmanagement company in Cebu.

It offers boat rides from Cebu City to neighboring cities or towns including Talisay City to Minglanilla and Naga City, Dalaguete, Oslob and Santander. Then routes going North bound include Liloan, Danao City, Bogo City, among others.

Each WaterBus can accommodate 50-70 people onboard per trip with an estimated fare ranging from P100 to P150 per person.

The 1st unit of the Cebu WaterBus is said to start sailing by April/May 2018, with route going to/from South.
