    How to Get to Manila North Harbor: Pier, Map, Commute, Directions

    Tutubi provides at least a one week paid vacation per year with airfare or ferry fare to his loyal helper from Malabuyoc, Cebu. Usually she takes the flight via ZestAir or Cebu Pacific but due to her excess baggage woes, she prefers the slow ferry to Cebu.

    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

    Map of Manila South Harbor with Pier 13, Pier 15 and Manila Hotel (as landmark). Pier 15 is sometimes called Eva Macapagal Terminal

    How to Get to Manila North Harbor:

    for a map of Manila North Harbor's Piers, please click here. Here's a location map of the North Pier with Pier 2 and Pier 4 at the bottom (south) and Pier 16 at the top (north).

    Commute to Manila North Harbor:

    From Caloocan, Quezon City, and Pasay: best to take the LRT and get off at Carriedo Station, transfer to a Pier-bound jeep on Rizal Avenue (Avenida). Alight at Anda Circle (the rotonda just outside Intramuros). Walk towards the Shell gas station then board a North Harbor-bound jeepney.

    Via MRT:

    best to get off at MRT Taft Avenue Station, transfer to LRT via the footbridge get off at Carriedo Station. transfer to a Pier-bound jeep on Rizal Avenue (Avenida).
    Alight at Anda Circle (the rotonda just outside Intramuros). Walk towards the Shell gas station then board a North Harbor-bound jeepney.

    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.

    Driving Directions to Manila North Harbor:

    From Makati, the easiest route to North Pier is via Buendia (Sen. Gil Puyat Avenue), right to Roxas Blvd all the way to Intramuros, go around Anda Circle, cross Delpan Bridge then turn left to Moriones where the North Port of Manila gate is located.

    From Manila Airport (NAIA Terminal 1, 2, 3 and 4 (Manila Domestic Airport), you can take a taxi going there if you have lots of baggage. Commuting may not be an option (estimated metered taxi fare is PhP250.00)
