Transport from Iloilo City to Pandan, Antique

We want to travel from Iloilo City to Pandan in April. We want to leave Iloilo City maybe at 12:00 noon (after sleeping there).

I wanted to opt for the Ceres Liner. Either going via San Jose de Buenavista or via Kalibo (and then the Ceres Liner in the direction of San Jose de Buenavista).

However I read it‘s quite a long journey. Any tipps, thoughts or recomondations? I don‘t really want to spend big bucks on that transportation, however, it would be possible to spend a bit more. Any help and/ or comment appreciated. Thanks
