The pier was very easy to find. Hiring motorcycles in Dumaguete is also very easy. We paid Php 8 each from Gabby's to the port.
There we booked a ticket for Siquijor which cost us just Php 125 each. It was a one hour ride via fast craft (ferry). We took the 12:30 trip and we arrived at 1:30pm. (timely!)
