THE RENOVATED Tubigon Port in Bohol, the main stop for sea transport to and from Cebu, started operations last Jan. 5 and is seen to further boost tourism in the island province. The port, which suffered major damage from the Oct. 2013 earthquake that struck the island, is now bigger with a “capacity to accommodate up to 28 ships including larger vessels, nearly thrice its previous capacity of 10 ships,” according to the Department of Transportation (DoTr). It also now has three roll on-roll off wharfs for landing craft tanks and barges.
