Ferry to Pika Festival fills up quick


The Marianas Visitors Authority is urging the public to act fast and reserve ferry seats for the 14th Annual Tinian Pika Festival.

The MVA has already secured a ferry for Saipan’s residents to celebrate with Tinian locals at the upcoming Pika Festival but seats are filling up quick.

According to MVA community projects coordinator Ray Villagomez, the ferry can only take up to 39 passengers per trip and already over 20 individuals have reserved spots on the ferry for the festival’s opening night.

Villagomez said the ferry seats are limited and it is a “first-come, first-serve” basis for anyone interested.

He is urging interested Pika Festival attendees to take advantage of the fair ferry prices offered by the MVA.

The ferry will only take on passengers from early morning and take passengers back in the evening. Ferry rides will only be offered from Feb. 18 to 19. Roundtrip tickets are set at $35 per person.

Villagomez said preparations are also being made to establish camping grounds for Saipan residents who want to attend the entire festival so individuals are welcome to bring camping equipment.

For individuals interested in reserving a spot on the ferry to Tinian, feel free to contact the MVA for reservations and additional information on the festival.
