Presently, the fast
craft located at the northeast section of the wharf is being
utilized by the lone "Supercat" fastcraft vessel plying the
Calapan-Batangas route. However, the port's operational plan is
to permanently utilize the recently completed 75-meter long finger
pier at the southwest portion of the wharf as dedicated berths for
fast crafts which can accommodate a maximum of four (4) vessels in
one time. This plan, however, will materialize upon completion of
the ongoing construction of the new Pasenger Terminal Building (PTB)
adjoining the finger pier by the second quarter of 2008.
