    Far as I know there is no direct boat to Guimaras from Bacolod. I have relatives who do that trip fairly regularly (they have farms on Guimaras) and they go via Iloilo. Your hotel in Bacolod should be able to book the Iloilo portion for you.

    You can take the express ferry (e.g. Weesam) from Bacolod to Iloilo city (about 250 pesos/person) and then a small banca from there to Guimaras-west side (25 minutes: 13 pesos/person).
    Or you take a bus from Bacolod to Pulupandan, where you can take a banka (45 min: 60 pesos/person) to arrive at the east side of Guimaras.
    At arrival at the east side you can take a minibus or jeepney to go to the other side(s) of the island.
    The first option is the easiest.

    yes

    Clownfish, yes....colleague Jellyfish :smile: has been there some times.
    My honneponny comes from Guimaras, so once every few months I join her on her trip to her parents and family.
    I have not been to all places there. So far I am not really impressed about what I have visited.
    It surely was for me not a place to stay, but that is very personal. For me too rural and too difficult to get (good) materials.
    I have heard others however who like it there. It is certainly nice to drive around across the island because the scenery is ok.
    What I do like VERY much is their mango's. We have a lot of mango's here at our place but they can't compete with those growing on Guimaras.
    Yammi !
