To celebrate this milestone, Fast Cat offered FREE ride to the first 5 passengers on each class and first 2 on light vehicles/SUV/Sedan on this maiden voyage. A friend of my wife got lucky to be one (well, make that a couple and a baby German shepherd) of who got free ride.
The Fast Cat terminal in Opol is located to what is known as Opol Fish Port. From CDO, that’s after Panagatan then turn right after Petron Station. Ticket prices starts at 570 pesos (Opol to Camiguin one way) plus a terminal fee (sold separately). BUT I heard that they will offer a 50% off on their rates as a special promo. So, lets ride and try Fast Cat na…hmmm, come to think of it, years back, I wanted to go to Jagna instead of Tagbilaran, I just cant recall why.
