It was my first time to ride a ferry boat going to somewhere I haven’t laid my eyes on. So there we were at the seaport waiting in line to purchase our tickets, I was very excited and very eager to ride the boat… When I first heard of “Fast Ferry,” I immediately said to myself “Hey. This is great! This will actually take us a few minutes to get there.” Then, when I got hold of our pass, it spelled 2 long hours! 🙁 Yeah, I accepted the fact that it will be, obviously, a long ride to Bohol.

I was bummed. I sat on my seat and tried to lower my sunglasses, pout as if I was that devastated, and went to sleep. Ouch! How arrogant of me. A few minutes had passed, travel prayers were flashed on the small TV set in front of us, demonstrations on how to use a lifejacket came along, and then I fell asleep. It’s as if I was that bored. Sailing for the remaining 1 hour and 30 minutes made me uneasy – “What could I possibly do with the time?”


I like this way better than being inside – even if it means having my sunglasses being swept by the wind haha.

Good thing there is this door that lead us to the deck. Honestly, I prefer staying outside rather than throw myself in misery inside the air conditioned vessel. The blue-colored sea was grand. It was just blue – a darker hue as compared to the sky but the combination is perfect. My eyes were glued to it from that moment on. The fresh air that swept my hair into different directions added “fun” to my Fast Ferry boat to Bohol experience. Thank God for the door that opened this opportunity to adore the Camotes Sea Cebu Strait beauty.
