The Philippine Coast Guard (PCG) announced on Saturday the lifting of the suspension of trips in Bohol and other parts of the Visayas.

PCG Station Cebu announced the resumption of sea travels starting at 10:17 a.m. today in a Notice to Mariners which they issued on the same day.

They used as basis the weather advisory issued by the Philippine Atmospheric, Geophysical and Astronomical Services Administration (Pagasa).

Trips from Tagbilaran to Dumaguete, Larena and Plaridel resumed today after six days of cancellation.

However, OceanJet cancelled its Getafe to Cebu trips at 6:30 a.m., 9:30 a.m., 12:30 p.m., 3:15 p.m. and 6:30 p.m. due to strong waves.

Trips to Pamilacan and Balicasag islands also resumed on Saturday. Many residents were left stranded since Sunday, August 4, following the suspension of sea travels to the island that is mostly dependent on motor bancas and other smaller sea vessels as a means of transportation.
