Lite Shipping - Taloot, Argao, Cebu To Catagbacan, Loon, Bohol

Recommended Posts

Paul

Today, while heading south into the province, I took some time to make sure I had the correct schedule for the Lite Shipping barge / Ro-Ro from Taloot, Argao, Cebu, to Catagbacan, Loon, Bohol, daily.

 

You can find this schedule, as well as many others, on my Cebu Boat Trips website.

Friday: 4:00am / 8:00am /12:00pm (optional trip)

Be advised that they don't always run. If they have few or little passengers/vegicles, they just cancel the trip and wait for the next scheduled trip.

I doubt very much whether the western expression 'timetable' translates effectively into most Filipino languages. Use your own discretion. Turn up the day before on a motorbike at the port to check times. Should you have to do anything important like get on a flight, be a best man at a wedding ceremony, etc, don't necessarily rely on a ferry in between two points in the Philippines to get you somewhere promptly and like it says on the carton.

Be adviced also that CATAGBACAN, LOON is a bit deceptive.

The pier is actually very near CALAPE!

And is about 42 km from TAGBILARAN.

No Robert,

Lite Shipping has a roro from Cebu Pier1 to Tubigon!

2 hour and 20 minute trip.

There may be more ferries also.

Be advised that all trips on this route are optional. If they don't have enough customers to pay the fuel, they don't leave the dock! If the Captain got too drunk the night before, they don't leave the dock!

 

Been there, done that.

I went by there today to inquire and I think the days and times posted in #1 are still accurate, although I should have taken a pic of the new handwritten schedule as Paul did. I wanted to send my vehicle over on this ferry, cost is p1650 total but the guy told me I had to go to Cebu City and get a bill of lading from the Lite Shipping office there before they would take it. Since I live in Argao it doesn't make sense to do that. He also said I would need to get this same thing from the office in Tagbilaran to bring the vehicle back. Is this a new procedure and does anyone have any recent experience with this route w/vehicle?

The procedure is common on other ferries if they are full.  In my experience (similar type craft) they will let you on and collect on the boat but only after the ones with confirmed and paid for slots have been loaded.  Was the ferry full?

The ferry wasn't there. I went to inquire. I need to find out if this Bill of Lading is a requirement or is this guy yanking me. If anyone has 1st hand experience taking a 4 wheel vehicle on this specific route (Taloot-Loon and vice versa) it would be appreciated.

document issued by a carrier, or its agent, to the shipperas a contract of carriage of goods. It is also a receipt forcargo accepted for transportation, and must be presented for taking delivery at the destination.

Among other items of information, a bill of lading contains (1) consignor's and consignee's name, (2) names of theports of departure and destination, (3) name of the vessel, (4) dates of departure and arrival, (5) itemized list of goods being transported with number of packages and kind ofpackaging, (6) marks and numbers on the packages, (7)weight and/or volume of the cargo, (8) freight rate andamount. It serves as a proof of ownership (title) of the cargo, and may be issued either in a negotiable or non-negotiable form. In negotiable form, it is commonly used inletter of credit transactions, and may be boughtsold, or traded; or used as security for borrowing money. A bill oflading is required in all claims for compensation for anydamagedelay, or loss; and for the resolution of disputesregarding ownership of the cargo. The rights,responsibilities, and liabilities of the carrier and the shipper under a bill of lading (often printed on its back) are governed generally either by the older Hague rules, or by the more recent Hague-Visby rules.

We have been back and forth on this ferry numerous times without needing this, although the last time was about a year ago.

 

Your mileage may vary.

Has anyone got any recent updates on this route and the bill of lading requirements? I'm planning to take my Ninja over on this ferry in the next few weeks, so I would appreciate knowing of any changes since the OP

I got conflicting information when I asked a few months ago. If a Ninja is a motorbike I don't think you will have a problem but I would stop by and ask if I were you, if you can't let me know and I will go by and see if I can get the policy du jour.

The Ninja is a motorbike, a 650. I know they often have different rates for big bikes and this will come into that higher rate. I'll take a buzz up the highway to see them in the next few days, it's a good excuse for a ride. I need to know what paperwork, etc to bring so that I can be fully prepared on the day as this will be the first time I've used one of the RORO ferries

WOW, they really sock it to the bigger bikes, I guess if you have a "luxury bike" you get the privilege of being raped.

I had my girlfriends cousin get my ticket when I brougt my Ninja home and I didn't really count the change when she gave it to me as I trust her completley...

 

But IIRC she told me the price was the same as my 150cc - around 700 pesos.

 

That was from Cebu to Tubigon.  This site (http://www.lite-shipping.com/rates.html) list the same trip for 450 pesos.

 

I guess you never know til you pay...

I took all that information directly from the posted notice at the Taloot terminal when I dropped by there earlier today.

 

If you read the rates posted on the website, Argao to Loon should be 350php for my bike, but at the port itself, the notice has different rates and says it will be 1290php.

I stopped by the pier today, the Argao (Taloot) ferry is sill going to Tagbilaran, not Loon since the earthquake. Attached are the current fees. He said my vehicle was an AUV so it would be 2800 something. The noon departure time is approximate, could be later depending on number of passengers.
