Star Shipping Allen to Matnog

star-shipping-ferry-001Star Shipping – Ferry between Allen and Matnog – connecting Luzon and Samar Islands

The Philippine National Highway runs all the way from Manila to Davao and Zamboanga in Mindanao. There are ferries between Luzon and Samar Islands and connecting Leyte and Mindanao. Reservations are not needed – vehicles are loaded as they arrive.

The ferries run continuously unless there is bad weather.

star-shipping-ferry-003Star Shipping is one of the 3 or 4 companies that ferries buses, trucks and other vehicles between Matnog on Luzon and Allen in northern Samar. The crossing is straightforward and easy – just make sure to have a few photo copies of your vehicle registration.

People riding the bus have the fare included in their tickets, but they have to get off and go through security while the driver loads the vehicle.

The ramp is raised but if there is any kind of a sea, the water will splash through the seams and soak your vehicle with salt water. Salt is very corrosive so be sure to give your vehicle a good wash down with fresh water if it got wet on the way over.

  10. Hi, just found your site. Very interesting and useful. You seem pretty knowledgeable so I hope you can help me.
    I want to travel from Legaspi (after being in Donsol) to Liloan in S Leyte in around 2 weeks time. I guess the direct route, Matnog-Allen-Calbayog-Tacloban-Sogod, is the best way and I note that the buses from Manila to Mindanao ply this route. However, I have had little joy trying to get a bus confirmed. Do you know if I can easily get a bus running from Legaspi (or nearby) to Tacloban (in one day) and then a day or so later, after a day in Tacloban, from Tacloban to Liloan. If so any idea of costs and how long the trip would be.
    Thanks in advance.

  11. Thanks for the good information. Very useful.
    I’m going to near Liloan, so I’ll head down the east side of the bay – bus or taxi?

    Thanks again for your help. J
