Night swimming is not prohibited at the seas of Boracay.
Life Guard Supervisor Miguel “Mike” Labatiao said this in an interview on Friday, October 19.
However when the waves are high and when swimming is dangerous for the public, swimmers are being warned by the Police, Municipal Auxiliary Police (MAP), especially by resort staff who are on duty at night.
Those who would like to swim at night even after being warned could be considered as swimming at their own risk.
Nevertheless, although there are few incidents of drowning at night, the possibility of drowning is not being underestimated.
A signage of “No Swimming” is apparently going to be made and posted along the beach during bad weather to warn tourists of the danger.
Labatiao added that since the number of Life Guards will be increased, the Local Government of Malay is studying the possibility of making the duty of Life Savers to be 24 hours a day, 7 days a week
