If you were planning to head down to the west coast today for a quick jet-ski dash and parasail ride, forget about it, they won’t be operating.
The Acting chief of the Phuket Marine Office yesterday announced a ban for jet-skis and parasail ride operators using Phuket’s west coast beaches until August 14.
The Phuket Marine Office Acting Chief, Wiwat Chitcherdwong says, “according to the Thai Meteorological Department (TMD) Office, heavy rain and high waves, up to three metres, are still affecting the Andaman Sea until Thursday August 14.”
“Jet-skis, parasails and ‘marine activities’ are now banned until the order is changed.” he added.
