In December 2017, 1Bataan Integrated Transport System opened and introduced an hour-long Manila to Bataan ferry ride. This provided passengers with another option besides the usual four-hour land journey via North Luzon Expressway and Pampanga.
The ferry system operator initially only offered day trips. However, thirteen months into the business, it has finally launched night trips too!

Travelers can now book a Manila-Bataan trip scheduled at 6 PM daily. Bataan-Manila trips, on the other hand, are scheduled at 7:45 PM every day.
The ferry picks up passengers at the Esplanade Seaside Terminal. This is located behind the SM Mall of Asia in Pasay City.
The drop-off point is at Capinpin Port in Orion, Bataan.
From Capinpin Port, travelers can take a shuttle going to various points in the province.
One-way fares cost PHP450 per passenger.
For your convenience, you can book your tickets via the operator’s website.
