Coast Guard Boracay, ready for the habagat season

The Coast Guard Boracay is now prepared for the Habagat season.

According to Philippine Coast Guard Boracay petty officer in charge PO1st Condito Alvarez, they already transferred the sea sports and island hopping activities at Bolabog area.

This is because the status of the front beach can now be considered as “rough seas.”

They already have coordinated with the local government of Malay yesterday, in order to place an anchorage area at Bolabog for a specified loading spot for the sea sports and island hopping goers.

This is to avoid clutter and or disorder in the mentioned area.

Alvarez also reminded the public on the risk of swimming at the front beach because of the large waves, and as a result conducts a continuous monitoring.

Night swimming isn't that much of a trouble, he added, as not many guests go swimming during these times.

Alvarez however extended his reminder for the public to refrain from swimming at the front beach although their monitoring continues.

He also reiterated to those travelling from mainland Malay to Boracay and vice-versa to strictly abide and implement the wearing of life jackets.

Noting that the public should not be so hard-headed when boatmen instruct them to wear the life vests as this is for their own safety.
