Thailand’s Marine Department says it has assigned more officers to check boats at every port and pier on Phuket.

 

It’s part of a campaign to tighten regulations for tourist boats and also improve marine security after the tragic boat accident that killed 46 Chinese tourists in July.

 

According to a report filed by the Tourism Authority of Thailand Newsroom, the Marine Department has assigned 26 more officers to visit every port and pier in Phuket to perform checks on boats and passengers heading out on sea excursions.
