ferry and bus trip from iloilo city (iloilo) to dumaguete city (negros oriental) has estimated travel time of 9.5 hours combined (without side trip). i left iloilo city at 0900H then arrived to dumaguete city at around 1830H.

ferry boat from iloilo city to bacolod city;
i arrived in the pier at 0820H. there were 2 open ferry company's that offer nearest departure time, ocean jet (0915H) and supercat (0900H). i am in amazing race type of plan so i availed supercat trip (which is also i think more cheaper than ocean jet) economy class seat costs php200 (student discount from php230). business class worth php330 and a VIP with meal worth php500. earliest supercat departure from iloilo to bacolod id 0730H while the last trip is 1700H at over an hour travel time.
