A niece posted on social media about a boat ride she took from Calamba, Laguna to Binangonan, Rizal. I immediately became curious about this as this presented an alternative mode of transport across the Laguna de Bay that could significantly cut travel time between major towns in Laguna and Rizal. Perhaps a boat ride could also cut substantial minutes between these provinces and Manila if only there was a direct connection or service with the Pasig River Ferry. I learned that it cost 50 pesos for a 45-minute trip from Calamba and Binangonan. Both the cost and the travel time are significantly less than what it would take via land and the roads connecting the two towns. I would estimate that the travel time using the South Luzon Expressway, Circumferential Road 6, Eastbank Road and Manila East Road would probably take more than 2 hours and the tolls alone will cost much more than 50 pesos. And this was via private transport. It would be longer and more expensive using public transport considering also that a person would have to make several transfers to travel between Calamba and Binangonan.

The boats are practically the same ones that ferry people to and from Talim Island and my niece mentioned that there is a regular service of at least one boat every hour. Certainly this option should be considered by transport planners as they think of alternative modes for more efficient travel.

Is there a boat from binangonan,rizal to paete, laguna? Where and how can i contact? Thank you very much for this very impt. Info.
Sorry don’t know about these details. Perhaps you should contact the Binangonan local government for such info.
where is the port in calamba
Brgy. Amplaya Calamba Laguna
There’s no Bgy. Amplaya in Calamba. Is that an old name? Meanwhile, the term “aplaya” roughly translates to “waterfront” and may refer to a port (formal or informal) in this context.
How to Travel Binangonan to talim island and go to calamba laguna ?
Go to the Binangonan Port and inquire if the boats ferrying passengers between the town and Talim are already operating. I assume they are as people in Talim also need supplies.
hello! How do I get to brgy. palingon from SM Calamba?
Before, jeepney and trike lang. Don’t know now.
Please post Calamba to Binangonan
Boat travel schedules and fares per person
This was a one time post a long time ago. I don’t usually go by this route so perhaps you can look elsewhere for the schedules and fares.
