Port Overview

Pulauan Port, better known as Dapitan Port, is located in Barangay San Vicente in Dapitan City.  It is situated in a cove fully protected by mountainous terrain.  The harbor can be accessed through the waters of North Western Mindanao, particularly in Dapitan Bay which is part of the Sulu Sea. This port is about 404 nautical miles (650 km) southwest of Manila, 156 nautical miles to Zamboanga City and 111 nautical miles to Cebu City. 

Port of Dapitan has been in the limelight as it continues to play an important role in connecting the network of roads and RORO ports to form a highway known as the Strong Republic Nautical Highway (SRNH) along the Western Seaboard. The port is the jump off point to/from Luzon and Visayas. Since the initial launching of the SRNH in 2003, a significant increase in RORO traffic in both cargo and passengers has taken place in the Port of Dapitan.
