The journey from Davao to Boracay has become easier now compared to years past. The information below can be used to go to the island regardless of the season.
Any of the following options can be used, your preference being dictated by budget, and if time is limited. The time you spend on the trip will depend on the mode of transport you chose.
The simplest and most practical way is to book a flight from Davao International Airport that will take you to Caticlan. If that is not possible, go on a flight that will take you to Kalibo. Either flight will last an hour. When you get to Caticlan, board one of the boats at the jetties. These will take you to the island.
If your flight from Davao to Boracay lands you in Caticlan, the boat / ferry ride will take you to the island in 10 to 15 minutes. If you landed in Kalibo, the journey will be longer.
After you land, you have to take a bus ride to Caticlan. This bus ride will take at least an hour and a half. When you reach Caticlan, the ferry will be waiting. The ferry will bring you to Boracay.
A more affordable option is to take the ro-ro. After you get to the Caticlan Pier, you can get a ride on the boat and get to Boracay. The ferry ride will take 15 to 20 minutes. Your vehicle will be left at the pier. The biggest drawback is the ro-ro ride will take four to five hours.
If you are unable to get a flight to Kalibo or Caticlan directly, you can get a flight to Manila or Cebu. From there you will have to get on another flight to the island. However, this should be a last resort as it takes a long time.
