Both Cebu Pacific and AirPhilExpress have direct flights from Cebu to Boracay (Caticlan). The Philippine Airlines flight is actually the same as operated by AirPhils.

The only other way would be to take bus across Cebu to Toledo, a ferry to San Carlos, another bus to Bacolod, a ferry to Iloilo, and finally one last bus to Caticlan then on to Boracay. Not possible to do in a day.

Seair also serves the Cebu-Caticlan (Boracay) route.

Another option is a 45 minute plane ride cebu-kalibo using airphil express which was only recently launched and will start on February 9, then take a 90 minute van ride to the jetty terminal that everybody uses to cross the channel to Boracay. The suggested trip by Haribon via San Carlos is doable, but very very tiring. This will take you more than a day to do (including overnight stay most probably in Iloilo or in Bacolod).

If you prefer to be that adventurous, the other option is to take an overnight boat/ferry trip from Cebu to Iloilo, and take a bus or a van rental from Iloilo to Caticlan which is a 5-6 hour land trip.

Kegler, did seair resume their Cebu-Caticlan? They totally pulled out from Cebu since middle of last year. Their website's booking still doesnt have Cebu as part of their route anymore.

It seems as the fight prices TO Boracay is allways lower then going back from Boracay. Is it only me or is this correct?

Dan, this is usually the case. So that's why many people fly out from Kalibo instead.
