About pick up transfers, please note that the last boat departure allowed by the Government from Maya to Malapascua is 6:00PM, so consider to overnight in Cebu City if the flight is landing after 2:00PM. About back transfers, the earliest departure from Malapascua is 6:00AM and we have to schedule the departure from Malapascua at least 7 hours in advance if the for an international flight and 6 hours in advance for a domestic flight. Depending on the schedule of the flight, please consider to overnight in Cebu City the night before the flight: for example, if the flight is an international departure at 12:45, it’s necessary to leave Malapascua at 5:00AM but this is not allowed by the Government, so it will be needed to leave Malapascua the day before (or choose a later flight, of course).
Alternatively you can use public transport.
From the North Bus Terminal of Cebu City buses leave to the port of Maya: normally, every 30 minutes there is a bus without air conditioning and every two hours there is one with air conditioning. The departure and arrival times are only indicative, as the buses stop on request and if there are many passengers they make several stops: a journey from Cebu City to Maya by public transport can therefore takes more than 6 hours.
The public ferry service to Malapascua is available at the port of Maya. Departures are scheduled every 30 minutes, from 7:00 am to 5:00 pm, but only if the minimum number of passengers is reached.
