This is a fast craft service so travel time is shorter. The fare is Php380.

The schedule may change sometimes without prior notice so it’s better to be early at the port. Travel time to and from San Andres is shorter than in Virac. If you are in a hurry, I suggest you take the San Andres route. There are a lot of vans and jeepneys from the port to Virac, Pandan and other parts of Catanduanes.
