Travelers have started to flock to Batangas Port, which is expected to be "full packed" on Wednesday amid the Holy Week rush, the Philippine Coast Guard said Tuesday. 

"Ini-expect po na ngayong araw na 'to, magkakaroon ng maraming dagdag [na biyahero] at pagkatapos, bukas po, talagang full packed iyung Batangas terminal," said PCG spokesperson Capt. Armand Balilo. 

(We expect that there will be additional travelers today and tomorrow, the Batangas terminal will be fully packed.) 

Authorities have inspected boats at the port while PCG deployed additional personnel, he told radio DZMM. 

Passengers are prohibited from bringing bladed weapons and flammable liquids, and are advised to identify exit points on their boat, said Balilo.
