Getting to Malapascua from Cebu airport Apr 06, 2011
i found great details for the cheapest way of getting to Malapascua from the airport in Cebu here

but as i was not travelling alone, I hired a cab with Danilo Condevillama ( for 2500 from Cebu airport to Maya (port where ferry goes to Malapascua island). My commuting time was reduced from the approximated 4.5 hr to 3. I took the bus - Ceres from Maya back to Cebu. It took 4 hr.

Annoyance at Maya - boatmen who kept telling us that there is no boat going to island anymore, and we should rent their whole boat. despite the 10 other locals waiting for the same ferry going to the same place, they can blatantly harass you to rent the whole boat. they upped the frequency asking when the time approaches for the "non-existent" ferry is ready to take in passengers.

the same is less evident from the island.

note at low tide, you have to transfer to a smaller boat to get to and from the ferry. 20 peso each.
