An air-conditioned van will be waiting at the airport or your hotel to pick you up. The driver will be at the exit or the lobby carrying a sign with the name of the guest.
The van will go straight to a private beach in Batangas called Berberabe Beach or Leah Beach where an outrigger ferry is waiting for you to depart to your destination in Puerto Galera.
Although there is no time requirement and you leave upon your pleasure, it is advisable to leave during daytime rather than nighttime since the Coast Guard only allows daytime trips for outrigger ferries. However, it has become a regular occurrence when nighttime trips are done especially when the passengers are tourists going to Puerto Galera.
