Ferry trip from Lipata, Surigao del Norte to Liloan, Southern Leyte

March 22, 8:01 AM (Day 2)- I am writing this blog on board Super Shuttle Ferry in route to Liloan, Southern Leyte from Lipata, Surigao del Norte. In fact, here's the view through the window:


and in front of me is my beautiful family


This was after Mama Sez and Nadine have settled their wrestling match (it was a draw!) during a diaper change session.

The ferry is quite new and facilities are relatively modern with convenient accommodations.

Here are the scenes prior to boarding. We got up at 4AM to get to Lipata Port at 5AM. We were witnesses to the beautiful sunrise on our vantage point at the northeastern tip of Mindanao.

The ferry was already there when we arrived, boarding was efficient and departure was on time.

Our car got a very good spot...near the entrance and neighbors with the traveling pigs LOL

Hi mervyn, I was planning to post the expenses during this island travel via the eastern nautical highway, but I have to look for our receipts as they got disorganized bec of the accident in Quezon.

For the meantime, you might want to contact Lipata port yourself to get the info you need. Click this link.

We have posted contact numbers for the tourism office in Surigao as well as Lipata port dispatch office. They may be able to provide you up-to-date information on the ferry.

Have a happy and safe trip. :)
