Diving and water sports activities will still be suspended once the island reopens on October 26. Undersecretary Sherwin Rigor of the Department of Environment and Natural Resources (DENR), during the recent public hearing of the House Committee on Natural Resources in Boracay, said this is to allow the conduct of the biodiversity assessment of the marine environment of the island.

Rigor said the suspension will also be needed to craft regulation guidelines for water sports activities. He said about 2,000 to 3,000 tourists engage in water activities in Boracay every day, which contributed to the degradation of the island’s marine ecosystem.

“We wanted to restore the biodiversity of the island,” he said. He said a designated area will be put up for the water sports organizations in the island. Meanwhile, tourists will already be allowed to swim in different beaches during the reopening.

Local tourists, particularly from Aklan and Panay Island will be allowed to enter the island starting October 15. Visitors from other parts of the country and foreign tourists will be allowed to enter starting on October 26.

To enter the island, a tourist must show a booking confirmation to ensure that they are staying on a compliant establishment.
