The Caticlan Jetty Port and Passenger Terminal in Aklan requires you to pay two separate fees before you board your boat going to Boracay.  One fee is the Environmental and Admissions Fee, and the other is the Terminal Fee.  The ferry terminal fee, like the airport terminal fee, is supposed to pay for the maintenance and general operations of the terminal building. Currently the fee is P100, or roughly $2 American dollars.

Boat Ferry Terminal to Boracay

Many travelers mistakenly think they have arrived in Boracay when their plane lands at Caticlan Airport or Kalibo Airport. Travelers must first get to the Caticlan ferry terminal, locally known as the Caticlan Jetty Port, and take a 10-minute ride across the Strait of Tabon in order to get to the actual island.

After disembarking the plane and claiming any checked luggage, visitors will find a choice of ground transportation — mostly tricycles, which can take them to the Ferry Terminal for a small service fee.

The Caticlan Jetty Port and Passenger Terminal has boats departing as early as 5:30am in the morning until as late as 9pm at night.
