We are concerned about the security situation on this remote island so close to the Philippines and terrible ASG. Given the current escalation I would like to know if military presence is noticed. Does the marine e.g patrol the sea around the island?

Yes there was a miltitary camp on site and their present is observed, as well we were escorted to and fro by 2 army personel on each trip. I am not sure of any marine corp patrolling of the area. Keep in mind thought, this also happened for our Selinga Turtle Island tour. I actually feel assured seeing them around. They are very friendly bunch of young guys.
We loved the trip and it's became the highlight of our 23 days tour, even exceeding Son Doong caving which we have to pay for a year in advance and 2 years on waiting list.
