    easy. schedules and fares have a habit of changing unanounced...
    these are more or less steady:
    batangas - calapan and vice versa : every hour - 24 hours
    tampi - santander and vice versa (dumaguete to cebu) about every 2 hours 5am till 23pm aboutish
    dumangas - bacolod and vice versa- every 2 hours (dont know schedule by heart)

    I plan to do a trip around visayas and mindanao by motorcycle. Know any websites to check roro schedule and contact numbers? If not, how about ferry companies I can search for. I googled "philippine roro schedule" and nothing informative.

    thanks in advance

    sorry for this late update. my friend told me that matnog to samar schedules are irregular since they leave every 2 hours. and 2 different shipping lines are catering the same route. you will have no problems travelling across even if you arrive at night. i have asked our fellow member cy es to check if there is a posted schedule on the pier when he goes back to matnog on weekend.

    Thanks doki's.

    Just got back from an amazing 10 day ride across visayas and mindanao. 2,500 kms and 7 roro's. It's the best way to see the Philippines.

    Yup, didn't have a problem with that roro from Allen to Matnog.

    Got this schedule. however, they have the habit of changing schedules unannounced as sir Jan have mentioned.
    Morning schedule:
    Matnog, Sorsogon: 0200, 0430, 0600, 0800, 0900, 1130, 1230

    Allen, Samar: 0245, 0345, 0415, 0615, 0715, 0745, 0945, 1115

    Afternoon: (i think applicable for both areas-not sure though as this was passed to me by my friend from a bus company)
    1315,1415,1445, 1645, 1745, 1815, 2015, 2145, 0045(midnight)
