Just 25 mins. away from the main town of Basco, Ivana Port is the starting point for your unforgettable journey to Sabtang.
Fare starts at P100 per person one way. It’s best to catch the first 7 am boat ride to Sabtang for a much smoother ride.
To get to Sabtang, you first need to brave the rough waves in a faluwa, a boat native to Batanes that is built without an outrigger or katig. It’s capable of riding the waves instead of going against them.
