Cebu to Surigao by Ferry (Rates / Schedule)

Cebu and Siargao are two of the most famous tourist spots in the Philippines. After exploring the island of Cebu, would it be nice to also visit Siargao?

Surigao City is the gateway to Siargao, so if you’re in Cebu, you need to travel to Surigao City first either via plane or ferry. I know that flying is the fastest way to get to a destination, but having the luxury of time and a tight budget, via ferry is the better way to go.

Currently, 3 ferry companies operate the Cebu to Surigao route and vice versa. These are Starlite Ferries, Cokaliong Shipping, and Medallion Transport. Please see below details.
