Travelling to Philippines by Sea
Broadly speaking, yes, it can be safe to travel by ferry in the Philippines, but it’s important to point out the massive differences between the various types of ferries that you could be traveling on.
Recently, several small ferries capsized when the weather suddenly took a turn for the worse, highlighting the fact that smaller ferry boats are usually more prone to accidents than larger ones which can cope better when the sea gets rough, but, with so many islands and such a variation in distances between these islands, how far you’re traveling will usually dictate what type of ferry you travel on.
The good thing about traveling by ferry in the Philippines is that it’s more affordable than flying, which is really the only other alternative when there are so many thousands of islands. But, flying has its limitations, as there are only 70 airports in the entire country, so you’re not going to get to see much of the Philippines if you’re only relying on airplanes.
