If you are traveling by road and intend to ride between islands, you will need to board a roro (ferry). Most islands (especially the larger ones) have one or more ports from which one can load a vehicle and explore different islands.  Read this post to find out about the Dalahican port (Lucena, Quezon Province) roro ferry price and schedules.

Dalahican port is located in Lucena city in the Quezon province in the Calabarzon region of the Philippines.  This port is the jump off point to Marinduque, Banton, Tablas, Romblon and Sibuyan.

There are two shipping lines that operate passenger ferry/roro boats from Lucena (Starhorse Shipping Lines and Montenegro Shipping Lines).  Both offer around 5 boats daily, but schedules are constantly changing and depending on the number of passengers and weather.  Also, you have boats that sail between Luchena (Dalahican Ferry Terminal) and Mogpog (Port of Balanacan), but there are also a number of boats that sail from Lucena to the port of Cawid in Marinduque and then sail to Banton, Tablas, Romblon and Sibuyan.

Trying to contact the companies through phone, e-mail or their social media can be close to impossible, so as a general rule of thumb, if you plan to sail from the port of Lucena, it is a smart idea to bbe there any time between 3a.m. (first boat sails at 3:30a.m.) and noon (if you want to catch some day light on your arrival in Marinduque.

It takes anywhere from 2 to 3 hours to sail between Lucena and Mogpog, while it may take an extra hour if you are traveling to or from the port of Cawid.

Find prices and schedules below.  Some companies will offer discounts for children, students, senior citizens and persons with disabilities, check when booking/purchasing your tickets.  Not all vessels have different classes, some may just have the regular seats/beds and a tourist class with aircon and others may have more than 2 different classes onboard.
