Iligan City Port is found on the northern coast of the island of Mindinao, the southernmost of the many islands which comprise the Philippines. Due to its tropical location, the area rarely experiences cold weather, making it a desirable holiday destination for tourists. However, Iligan still remains somewhat of a hidden gem in the Philippines with visitors tending to head towards more prominent regions such as Manila and Cebu. The lack of westernization from European tourists has maintained Iligan Port’s authentic feel, yet it still welcomes tourists from all countries.
Transport to and from the ferry terminal is somewhat lacking; there is a general absence of public transport such as buses and trains, therefore it is advisable to book a taxi or try the local custom. Tartanillas (horse drawn carriages) and sikads (personalised mopeds) are readily available and can be seen all over the city, however, sikads are known to be sometimes dangerous and unreliable.
Two companies are relied upon to supply ferry routes from Iligan City Port; Carlos A. Gothang Lines and Cokaliong Shipping Lines provide the crossing to Cebu as the most popular service. There are also crossings to Cagayan De Oro, Dumaguete and Legaspi, each running a few times per week. The times of the crossings vary from season to season, so it is worthwhile checking for live updates to guarantee a pleasant journey.
