Includes step-by-step instruction on how to travel to Iloilo City from Guimaras (and vice versa) and 2023 ferry schedules and fare.


Guimaras used to be part of Iloilo until it was declared a province in May 1992 during the time of former President Fidel V. Ramos.

Passenger ferries from Iloilo have two ports of destination in Guimaras – Jordan Wharf in the town of Jordan and MacArthurs Wharf, also known as Buenavista Wharf, in the town of Buenavista. Jordan Wharf is approximately two kilometers off the coast of Iloilo City while Buenavista Wharf is around 3 kilometers away.

Getting to Iloilo from Guimaras (and vice versa) is pretty straightforward. All you need is just go to the port, take a short ferry ride, and you’re done.
