STARLITE FERRIES

from Manila to Romblon via Batangas

In addition to flying to our local airport (Tablas, Romblon), taking the Starlite Ferry is a popular travel option for our guests. You can book a private cabin, shared cabin, or bed in a dormitory-style sleeping area (all air-conditioned). We offer a pick-up service from Manila, Anilao, or another location on Luzon Island. Our private hired van will take you to Batangas Pier, where you can board the Starlite Ferry four times a week. The ferry ride is overnight, so you can relax and rest before starting your diving adventure in Romblon.
