How to Get there : From the city center or the bus terminal, you need to take a tricycle going to the Boulevard. From there you can take a passenger boat that leaves Surigao City daily at 12:00 noon going to San Pedro Wharf. There is no boat that will depart on the same day from San Pedro so you will need to stay overnight in the Island. The next trip will be the following day at 8AM going back to Surigao City. If you want a day trip only, you may charter a boat from the Surigao Boulevard. Price may vary depending on your negotiation skills.
