Cebu Harbor

Shipping port in CebuCebu Harbor

Cebu is a major shipping hub in the Philippines. I really enjoy taking pictures of the boats and activity in the channel between Cebu and Mactan Island.

Shipping vehicles between the different  islands in the Philippines is rather easy but it takes a few times doing it before you get used to the system.

Basically you must have a copy of your registration to get a bill of lading from the shipping company. Then pay the port fees or PPA, get a passenger ticket for yourself and pay the terminal fee for that too.
