Traveling between Cagayan de Oro and Oroquieta usually takes around 4-5 hours including a 15-minute barge trip across Panguil Bay. But would you take a fastcraft to serve a direct route between the 2 cities? This could yet be realized soon as revealed by Oroquieta City Mayor Lemuel Meyrick Acosta following a meeting between city officials led by City Councilor Henry Regalado Jr. and Christopher S. Pastrana, Chairman of Archipelago Philippine Ferries Corp. which owns FastCat.
It can be recalled that in 2018, FastCat served the short-lived Jagna-Camiguin-Opol route.
