Van for Hire and Boat Rentals

by sweet_sentiments Online Now May 17, 2008 at 6:32 PM

Hi,

I'm researching about Zamboanga City.
Does anyone know of a van for hire that would take us around to Zamboanga's famous tourist spots?

And how much does taking a pumpboat usually costs? We're going to Sta. Cruz island, Bolong and Dakak. I'm not sure how far they are from each other but if I want to go to these beaches is a day trip island hopping enough? If not, can you suggest a more doable itenerary?

Thanks in advance!

    I am not sure about Bolong and Dakak. But Sta. Cruz Island is just a few minutes away from Lantaka Hotel. I think the boat ride costs about P50/pax, you can go to Lantaka and ask there.

    Bienvenidos!

    Usually your hotel arranges your island trip to sta cruz.
    Good hotels are the following:
    - Garden Orchid Hotel which is very near the airport.
    - Lantaka Hotel by the sea along the seaport.
    - Marcian Garden Hotel also near the airport
    - Astoria Hotel & Sky Park Hotel are along the city proper.
    hotels also have their van for rents to assist you in your itinerary.
    Bolong is within Zamboanga City, east coast area.
    Sta Cruz island is near the province of Basilan and one day will be enough.
    Dakak is located in Dapitan, ZAmboanga del Sur.
    From ZAmboanga City, it will take you around 6-8 hours land trip to reach Dakak
    Hope this will help!
    Enjoy your stay!

    Hi, Im originally from zamboanga bu right now located in cebu... i can give you some numbers where you can contact as a van 4 hire. with regards to the pumpboat u can hire one along the port of zamboanga if you intend to go to sta cruz island but you wont be able to cover the 3 beaches in a day since bolong beach is on the other end of zamboanga and with dakak it a little farther away from the city itself...u can hire a pumpboat to service your trip on the 3 beaches but it will cost more on your end. if you have time i suggest u get a tour guide which u can easily find in every hotel that you will stay and then spend a day at each beach that way you get to enjoy the beauty of each beach...:) enjoy zamboanga...ull be amazed at what you'll see...it has more to offer...
