Traveling to and from Calbayog - by sea

Travel to Calbayog is often done by ferry. The most common route is the overnight boat from Cebu, which arrives early in the morning except days in which the tide is too low at that hour, in which case the boat must wait for it to rise to a sufficient level.

On the northern end of Samar is another ferry which connects to Leyte Island and all points north. If you take the bus to Albay, Naga or Manila you will cross this way.

The ferry, which is a short trip day ferry, smaller than the ones going to Cebu.

Be sure to take a depandable vessel, and don't travel in bad weather, as you do not want to be on a boat that ends up like this one, which sank between Samar and Leyte in November 2003.

Calbayog also has an airport. Flight schedules change but usually Asia Spirit and/or Philippine Airlines have 3-5 flights from Manila to Calbayog per week. The Calbayog Airport, which is considered a secondary airport, has a concrete surface. It has a total runway length of 1,475 meters and a width of 30 meters. This airport can accommodate aircraft for general aviation (weighing 12,000 pounds and below).

There are also a number of bus lines that go through town and these connect through ferries to many cities in the Philippines.
