With this fast craft it will reduce sailing time from 12 to just 5 hours. The craft is a 300-seater air conditioned vessel powered by brand new twin engines. The fast craft leaves Calbayog daily at 8 am for Cebu Port, and leaves at 2 pm for the return trip that arrives in Calbayog at 7 pm.
Grand Ferries has plans to expand their route network with the aim of promoting tourism on the island of Samar.
