This ferry service, the gateway to Corregidor, announces closure

Corregidor Island, an island located at the entrance of Manila Bay, is a popular day-trip destination from Metro Manila. It is considered as one of the historical sites in the Philippines due to its location, which has historically been fortified with coastal artillery to defend the entrance of Manila Bay and Manila from attacks by enemy warships.

Prior to the COVID-19 pandemic, people from the National Capital Region (NCR) can easily travel to the island and one of the safest options to do so is by taking a ferry from Sun Cruises.

Sun Cruises has its roots back in 1988 and for over 30 years, it has been a go-to ferry service provider to the historical Corregidor Island.

Unfortunately, the COVID-19 outbreak changed the travel landscape. With no vaccine in sight and no end yet to the pandemic, leisure travel isn’t seen on the horizon.

Hence, today, Sun Cruises announced its closure, which was effective on May 16, 2020. We don’t know yet if they have plans of reopening once the outbreak subsides.

“We would like to advise guests who have already paid in advance, either partially or fully, that we are doing everything we can to process all claims of refund for unused tickets/coupons and/or reservations,” it wrote on the post.

“Please do continue to consider Corregidor in your future travel plans and leisure activities,” the post concluded. “Exciting things should be up and coming once the vision for Corregidor as a Tourism Zone becomes a reality soon.”
