This section contains more information on getting to Dumaguete City by sea from other areas in Central and Southern Philippines.
Negros Oriental is located in the middle of the Central Visayas region, which means it is accessible even from the seaports of Mindanao.
To make it easier for visitors to get here, below are the different trips from various areas like Cebu, Bohol, Dapitan, Camiguin, Dipolig, etc.
Travel time depends greatly on the vessel, the weather (calm waters make for faster travel, of course) and whether or not the boat will make stops at other ports along the way.
