The local government of Malay gives warning to all motorboats on a Hambil, Romblon to Boracay route.
This is as the LGU orders the apprehension of boats coming from other islands, particularly from Hambil, that will violate the 1 entry-1 exit policy of the Aklan Provincial Government.
In line with this, the mentioned boats must pass via the Cagban Port only and are prohibited to dock at Boracay’s front beach.
The Philippine Coastguard and the Maritime Police were already instructed of a strict implementation of the said policy.
Many resort owners in Boracay have complained about boats picking up passengers at stations 1 and 3.
Meanwhile, According to Jetty Port Administrator Nieven Maquirang, Aklan Governor Florencio Miraflores himself will conduct a meeting with barge owners in the area.
Barges are also prohibited to dock at Boracay due to the damage it may bring to the corals in the island.
