Davao Beach Club
The island garden city of Samal is a small island off the coast of Davao Del Norte. The beaches in the island are the most sought after asset of the province. Its landscape is an amalgamation of rocky heights, sprawling hills and pristine white sand beaches. There are also waterfalls, beach coves, caves, dive spots and adventure facilities for those who seek thrilling experiences.
In going to the Island from Davao City, there are several ways that you may consider:
Island City Express
via Sta Ana Wharf
You can take ferry boats near Magsaysay Park that will directly bring you to Kaputian Beach Wharf.
via SASA Km 11 Wharf
Located along JP Laurel Avenue, Sasa, Km. 11 wharf is where motorboats are available to ferry passengers directly to Babak wharf.
via IGACOS Ferry Terminal
There are non-aircon Samal Island buses in Magsaysay park known as the "Island City Express" that will take you to IGACOS ferry terminal. The bus will then take a ferry boat going to Kinawitnon Wharf in Samal island.
Davao Beach Club Wharf
via Private Boats
Most resorts usually have private boats that transports guests from Davao City to the resort. You have to arrange it with your resort to know the details.
This is what we did. From our hostel in Davao City we took a cab going to Davao Beach Club where Blue Water beach resort's pump boat is docked. It only took us around 15 minutes to reach the resort.

Please note that we didn't take any of the first 3 routes, these were just based from available information on the internet.
