The PCG advisory said that passengers were inspected from 223 vessels and 423 motor bancas from 6 a.m. to 12 noon.

The PCG said it deployed 1,961 frontline personnel in all ports.

The coast guard added that the public should coordinate with them through the Coast Guard Public Affairs (0927-560-7729) regarding sea travel protocols and regulations during the Holiday season.

Earlier, the PCG had placed its districts, stations, and sub-stations on “heightened alert” to manage the arrivals of passengers due to the holidays from Dec. 15 to Jan. 7, 2023.
