Pro tip: Food sold and served on Ferry boats can be expensive, so buying your meals ahead of your scheduled boat ride is better. Meanwhile, traveling from Siargao to Surigao to Cebu costs just the same. 

Editor’s Note: It’s good to remember that this option is only recommended for people with the time and energy to travel long hours. 

If you love sea travel and opt to move at a slow pace when seeing the world, then you should try this on your next trip to Siargao.

  1. After arriving in Surigao port, you need to transfer to the terminal for the ferry that brings you to Siargao via General Luna, which is practically beside the port where the boat from Cebu docks, buy your tickets and it’s another 1-hr or 1.5hr trip by ferry and a 30-min tricycle ride to General Luna…hope this helps!
