Island Water Fastcraft: Comfortable, stylish travel to Bantayan

UPDATE (March 30, 2020): They are temporarily stopping the operations due to the CoVID-19 outbreak until further ntoice.

The only drawback I can think of from traveling to Bantayan Island is the long distance from the city proper, hopping from a 3-4 hour bus trip to another 1-2 hour of sea travel. After all, sitting on a stiff bench or an old chair for at least an hour can be pretty much uncomfortable and stressful.

To help ease your travel dilemma and make it more fun, the new Island Water has launched brand-new fastcrafts boasting comfortable and stylish amenities without spending too much.

Island Water’s newest vessels feature free WIFI access and movie streaming, and are also equipped with the latest and the most compliant life saving apparatuses, making every passenger feel safe while travelling at sea.
