Hi there, my name is JR and I’m the founder of Ports & Ferries 🙂 I built the site back in early 2019 and since then, with the help of freelance content editors, it has grown to be one of most popular info blogs for sea travel in the Philippines. But even with all the success and despite having advertising on the site, we struggle to keep up with monthly server costs and paying our editors at the same time.
Because of this, we’ve decided to set up a BuyMeACoffee page where those who wish to support the site can contribute at least $1 USD. We chose the minimum amount that the site allowed us as we know that it is enough and we don’t want to ask much more from our visitors. However, if you are happy enough to contribute more, there are options provided to increase your donation 😃
Whatever the amount, I would just like to say THANK YOU because it means a lot to us, not only to keep the site running but your contribution will also allow us to push more updates frequently.

BuyMeACoffee is down
In the event that the BuyMeACoffee site is down, you can opt to support us by contributing directly to our PayPal account at paypal.me/portsandferries.
I don’t have PayPal or a card, are there other options?
We also accept GCash donations which can you send to 09277165346. Please do not attempt to call this number as this is not connected to any cellular device. If you don’t have GCash then don’t worry, you can still support us by sharing our website to your friends and family 😃
How COVID-19 has affected the travel industry
A lot of businesses have been affected negatively because of the pandemic and the travel industry was one of those that was hit the hardest. Due to lockdowns and quarantine measures, the volume of airline and ferry trips were down to an all-time low. Because of this, Ports & Ferries was impacted so much that revenue was cut by almost 90%. Although we’ve seen a rise on the number of trips recently as restrictions were lifted, the site still has a long way to go to get back to full operations.
