I am interted in knowing if there is a bus leaving for Batagas Pier around 10-12 am with connection to Sabang beach and how long it will take and at what price?
PLease try googling for Swagman(?) Tours, terminal is near American Embassy in Roxas Blvd, leaves around 7-8 am daily, around P500 one way.
First i need to know where you are coming from.
you can also ride a van in alabang. from edsa you can take a bus going alabang (via skyway) and from alabang go to alabang terminal and there's a henlin store at the corner there's a van going to batangas pier daily. it cost 100php/ head. from alabang to batangas pier the travel time would be max of 2 hours =)
enjoy your trip
Try to leave Manila early, as on the afternoon boat trips, waves tend to be big esp near the Batangas channel. Last boat trip to Sabang is at 4pm, (at times 5pm). Blue Penguin is one of the big boats and would be safer to ride.
I paid 900 P for 2 people return. The bus leaves Swagman Pub at 8.00 am and it take about 2 1/2 hours to Batangas where you will board an outrigger ferry that take about 40 people. You will land on the beach and have to walk to your accomodation. DO NOT accept assistance from the many porters as they will charge you a mint and they get very hostile if you argue the price. They may qoute 1 price but to get your gear it may cost 3-4 times more. It is a great trip.
