Taking a private car/van and private bangka (outrigger boat) is the most comfortable, convenient and time-efficient way to get to Puerto Galera and back, especially for two people or more where the costs may be shared. We will arrange to pick you up at your hotel or the airport in an air conditioned vehicle and drive you in comfort to Berberabe beach near Batangas where you will board a private bangka for direct transfer to Out of the Blue. The car/van trip is normally about 2.5 hours from Manila to Berberabe beach and the boat trip 1 hour across beautiful Verde Passage.
Cost is P7,000 each way for up to 6 people.
A popular method is to take a private air conditioned car/van from Manila (from your home, hotel or the airport) to Batangas Pier, then a public bangka (outrigger boat) to Sabang beach where we will meet and escort you to Out of the Blue. Typical cost is P3,500 for the private car/van, and about P300 per person for the public bangka.
Or you can take your own car to Berberabe Beach, near Batangas, where we can meet you with a private bangka and take you straight to Out of the Blue.
Typical cost is P3,500 for the private bangka.
For the budget traveler another option is the tourist bus / public bangka (outrigger boat) service that departs from the City State Tower and the Swagman Hotels in Ermita at 8:00am every morning.
