Some of the most recent typhoons put several ferry services to a stop, some of which have yet to resume operations to this day. The FastCat service between Surigao and Liloan is one such example.
Earlier this week, though, the Philippine Ports Authority (PPA), together with the Port Management Office (PMO) of Surigao and Archipelago Philippine Ferries Corp. (APFC) has finally relaunched the Surigao-Liloan and vice versa route after six months of non-operations due to Typhoon Odette.

The PPA’s press release reads: “The Surigao-Liloan-Surigao route is considered an important leg of the Eastern Nautical Highway as it connects mainland Mindanao to the rest of the Philippines, offering accessible and faster interisland transportation of goods, tourists, and regular passengers.”
The service was officially restarted on July 29. The ferry service uses the FastCat M7, and there are two roundtrips available daily.
