How To Fly To Puerto Galera

Flight Service Interruption

Government Guidelines dictate that scheduled flight services to Puerto Galera are effectively suspended until further notice, except for emergency flights and special charter.

The following flight options were in effect before the suspension and will probably return to effectiveness as and when the COVID-19 challenge has been fully met.

Our best advice is to follow Government Guidelines and help the Philippines back to propserity as soon as possible.

Previously . . .

You can now fly direct to Puerto Galera from Manila via amphibious seaplane. The flight to Puerto Galera from Manila takes 35 minutes or less and is described as "simply spectacular" as it takes you over the famed Taal Volcano.

Note: If you are planning to fly to Puerto Galera during high season (November to May) then advance booking is highly recommended because flights may become full days before scheduled departure.

If seaplanes are not your cup of tea then you can alternatively, take the frequent air-conditioned bus services from Pasay City to Batangas ferry port. Recommended bus lines from Taft corner Sen. Gil Puyat Avenues (Pasay City): Ceres Liner or Jam Transit. Travel time by air-conditioned bus to Batangas ferry port is around two hours and the cost is around US$4 per person; WiFi on board. Travel time by ferry from Batangas ferry port to Puerto Galera is between 60 and 90 minutes (depending on the ferry company chosen - most people prefer Minolo Shipping Lines for the fastest trips). Please note that the last ferry from Batangas to Puerto Galera is around 4.00pm daily.

Total travel time to Puerto Galera from Manila NAIA / Pasay City is between 4 and 5 hours - a good reason to consider the Fly To Puerto Galera option!

If seaplanes and buses are not your thing then you can always hire a taxi or car from Manila NAIA (or your favorite hotel) and they will drive you direct to Batangas ferry port. You can expect to pay anywhere from US$65-105 for a one-way taxi/car transfer.
