The Department of Tourism (DOT) is working with the Maritime Industry Authority (Marina) and the Puerto Galera local government for the best way to ease boat congestion at the tourist spot. Tourism Secretary Alberto Lim said that docking of boats anywhere on the beach has become a concern because it disturbs guests and endangers those wading or swimming by the beach. That is why they are studying what will work best given the local conditions in Puerto Galera.
“We are working with Marina to impose stricter standards on all seacrafts crossing the channel. Larger seacraft are generally safer. They are also more professionally run,” Secretary Lim said.
