    1. Yes. daily po

      1. Unfortunately, I just called the Weesam Express in Zamboanga City now, they have already stopped their Zamboanga-Jolo fast craft operations since last December. 🙁

        The only way as of the moment is via an overnight ferry by Aleson Shipping or Sing Shipping.

        1. Thanks for the update, Tom!
