Thailand’s Marine Department has announced progress made in improving Phuket’s tour boat safety with the aim to enhance the standard of marine tourism in the country and to assure confidence among tourists that the necessary measures are moving forward.

Boat Lagoon Pier, Phuket

The Marine Department has assigned 26 more officers at every port and pier in Phuket to perform checks on boats and passengers heading out on sea excursions. It is also in the process of deploying more officers at other Thai resort destinations.

In addition, a new regulation has been announced to be enforced in time for this coming high season – all tour boats will be checked twice a month, up from once a month, to ensure the equipment on board and the crew meet safety regulations.
