Ferry from Manila to Bataan- 1Bataan Integrated Transport Service

Bataan Ferry
With relevance to the recent visit I had in Playa la Caleta, we heard the easier route going to Bataan without breaking a sweat. Usually, I had to go to the major bus lines in Metro Manila and take connecting trips via land transfer when I go to Bataan, it takes 2-4 hours depending on the proximity and part of Bataan you're heading to but with this new route system the travel time shortened significantly, from 2-4hrs now you can reach Bataan in just 45 minutes, how wonderful is that? Thanks to 1Bataan Integrated Transport System for making this fast and efficient system conveyance for the people, this for sure will help both individuals and businesses improve their transport means.

How's my experience?

The port is located at SM Mall of Asia Seaside beside Vikings restaurant.
We had our reservation and scheduled our trip at 6:30AM, please be guided with few reminders before going aboard. The process is hassle free, the staff are well trained and very accommodating. Just be there an hour before your schedule, approach the staff for registration, present your id and you're good to go, as easy as one-two-three.

Upon checking in our luggage we proceeded inside the ferry, we were wowed by its modern features as if we're boarding a plane or better than that, it has wider space and can carry more than a hundred passengers I guess. We seated to the front couch which happened to be the VIP seats, aside from comfortable seats and fast voyage you will never get bored as they have on board movie entertainment, for sure you will not notice the time! And if you think these features doesn't suffice your standards maybe the complimentary wifi will, yes they provide free wifi access.
