How to Get to Manila North Harbor: Pier, Map, Commute, Directions
UPDATED: January 2016
This one's for people looking for ways to get to Manila North Harbor to board several passenger ferries including those of Negros Navigation (now operated by 2Go Travel)
Manila South Harbor is home to odd-numbered piers e.g. Pier 15 (the former home of the presidential Yatch that Tutubi was able to board many years ago) now the terminal of SuperFerry, Pier 13, Pier 11, Pier 9 with most piers used for commercial shipping companies. Pier 1 is not there though, that popular watering hole :P
Manila North Harbor, on the other hand, is host to even-number piers: Pier 2, Pier 4, Pier 6, Pier 8, Pier 10, Pier 12, Pier 14 and Pier 16 et al

From Navotas, Malabon, there may be jeepney routes passing by North Pier but is unconfirmed so Tutubi defers posting information so as not to mislead commuters.
There are also jeepneys plying the route Quiapo - Divisoria - North Harbor that Tutubi sees regularly along P Paterno near corner Quezon Boulevard but the exact route is not known to him if they traverse the whole stretch of C.M. Recto Avenue even inside traffic-prone Divisoria (which they obviously don't) but that jeepney route do indicate going to to Pier of North Harbor Manila.
