How do I get to Corregidor?

With the ferry company closing during the pandemic, the only way to reach Corregidor now is to travel to Bataan from Manila and then take a boat to the island. If you’re coming outside the Philippines, you can take a flight to Manila and land at Ninoy Aquino International Airport (NAIA) in Manila or take a flight to Clark and land at Clark International Airport in Pampanga.

To reach Bataan from Manila, you can use private transport like a Manila airport transfer or book a Manila car rental with or without a driver. By private vehicle, it's a 2.5-hour drive of about 124 kilometers. You can use the North Luzon Expressway, taking either the San Fernando toll exit or the Subic-Clark-Tarlac Expressway (SCTEX). If you choose the San Fernando exit, drive through Lubao and Dinalupihan. If taking SCTEX, exit at Dinalupihan and head towards Balanga.

You can also take a bus going to Bataan from Manila. For bus travel, various companies like Genesis, Bataan Transit, Victory Liner, and Sinulog operate from different locations in Manila. The trip takes roughly 3 hours.

If you’re arriving at Clark International Airport, you can take a taxi or bus to the Dau Bus Terminal and then transfer to a UV Express van to Balanga City.

For a faster option, you can take the Manila-Bataan Ferry Boat at SM Mall of Asia. This 50-minute ferry ride goes directly to Port Capinpin in Orion, Bataan.

Once in Bataan, you can board a pump boat going to Corregidor Island. However, for a hassle-free trip, it’s highly recommended to book a Corregidor tour package. Take note that Corregidor tour prices differ per duration of the tour.

Is it necessary to book tours in advance?

It is recommended to book tours in advance, especially during peak seasons, to make sure the tour is available and for you to have a smooth experience.
