God's Grace II - Ferry from Batangas to Lubang

FERRIES FROM LUZON TO LUBANG ISLAND

Between the port of Calatagan (in Batangas) and Tilik, pump boats are available such as M/B God's Grace II. These are much smaller than the RORO (Roll On Roll Off) ferry such as the Nikki pictured.

The trip between Calatagan and the Port of Lubang at Tilik takes approximately two hours.

In January 2015 I went on M/B King Ferlin 4 from Tilik to Nasugbu. This also takes about 2 hours, but my trip was delayed by about half an hour as on two occasions they stopped to haul aboard a fish they caught by trolling.

John Lord fishing boat unloading at Tagbac

Our group hired a fishing boat, the "John Lord", to travel from the Port of Calatagan, Batangas to Lubang Island. In the middle of the boat can be seen a refrigerator, which due to lack of space was stood upright.

After we embarked from Calatagan, the wind and wave heights increased, and we were forced to go around the southern tip of Lubang Island, on the leeward side of the Island to reach Tagbac.

The approximately six hour trip between Manila and Tilik can be relatively dull so sleeping accommodation is appreciated by many passengers.
