Another way to go to Guimaras from Iloilo City is to ride a pumpboat or roll on roll off (RORO) ferry from the Parola Wharf in Iloilo City bound for Buenavista Wharf. They say the Parola Wharf is a wiser option when going to Guimaras during rainy season or when the waters are rough. I learned about this when we went back to Iloilo City via pumpboat at Buenavista Wharf. We came from Navalas Church on our last day so it was more practical for us to take a boat at nearby Buenavista Wharf than travel all the way back to Jordan Wharf.

I noticed that the pumpboats from Buenavista are bigger than those sailing from Ortiz Wharf to Jordan Wharf. Fare was P35/pax.
