IN PHOTOS: Holy Wednesday Procession in Boac, Marinduque

Boac Marinduque Moriones Lenten Rites Photos

Marinduque is one of my favorite holy week destinations in the Philippines. Last March 23, 2016, we decided to spend our holy week in Boac, the capital town of the province. This is actually my 3rd time to spend holy week in Marinduque; every visit is special and doesn't fail to amaze me on how the Marinduqueños spend the Lenten Season.

How to Get to Marinduque from Manila


The most convenient way is to take advantage of JAC Liner's Marinduque Seat Reservation System. Jac Liner has trips to Marinduque from Manila which covers all the needed expenses going to the province. With their system, you can reserve bus seats in advance which covers the total fare (bus fare, RORO ferry fare and terminal fee) from Manila and vice versa. With this, you can choose your preferred seats and be assured of a comfortable and worry free travel to Marinduque during holy week. Fare is 830 pesos for Mogpog, Boac and Gasan; while it's 880 pesos for Buenavista, Torrijos and Sta. Cruz. Full payment must be made before reservation can be confirmed by JAC Liner. You may call JAC Liner Kamias at (02) 928-6140 for more details. Prices are subject to change without prior notice.

By Land and Sea
From Metro Manila, you may take a bus bound for Dalahican Port in Lucena City, Quezon. The standard fare is about 220.00 pesos and travel time is around 4-5 hours depending on road and traffic conditions. Jac Liner, Jam Liner, Lucena Lines and RRCG Bus Lines has daily trips from Metro Manila to Lucena City. Bus terminals can be found in Cubao and Buendia Pasay.

Alternatively, you can take a bus bound for Lucena City Grand terminal (220 pesos). From there, take a passenger jeepney or tricycle to Dalahican port.

Upon arrival in Dalahican Port, there are RORO vessels and ferries with regular trips to the island province of Marinduque. There are three RORO/Ferries bound for Marinduque's 3 main ports: Buyabod Port in the town of Sta. Cruz, Cawit Port in Boac and Balanacan Port in Mogpog. Fare is about 260 pesos (Balanacan/Mogpog) / 370 pesos (Cawit/Boac) and travel time is around 3-4 hours depending on sea condition and the type of vessel you took. Be sure to know which town you want to visit to know which port you'll arrive or ferry you're going to take.

IMPORTANT: Dalahican Port is open 24 hours. Expect it to be crowded with passengers during weekends and holy week due to the number of tourists and locals wanting to spend the long vacation in Marinduque. You can read my previous experience in Dalahican Port where we waited for 6 hours to take the ferry.

TIP: You may go to Marinduque as early as Holy Tuesday or Holy Wednesday and leave on Black Saturday or Tuesday after Easter Sunday. These are the time that I think that the port has lesser passengers wanting to take the ferries.

Enjoy Marinduque!
