Phuket jet-ski operators warned after Chinese tourists dangerously ‘buzzed’

Recommended Posts

The Phuket jet ski mafia and those they employ don't give a sh!# about anyone or anything except money in their hands. The amount of Baht being made is staggering, and the brown envelopes are passed around to police, local councilors, and anyone else who has the authority to stop it. The "Marine Police" are a joke, and any "warnings" they give are for show only.

Just this morning I watched the goons at Kamala Beach towing their jet skis down the sand one by one, using a motorcycle saleng with no muffler, right in front of beachfront hotels and very near the police station. The noise was deafening and lasting almost half an hour. The local cops and the so-called Marine Police are little more than extortionists. The provide ZERO public safety for beach goers.

Be warned. Any and all jet ski renters on Phuket DO NOT have the proper license, insurance, experience, or common sense to do anything safely, and will trample over any other beach goers in their way. If a tourist complains, they will be run off the beach by thugs.

Phuket's beaches are now nothing more than a true sh!# hole, with raw sewage flowing daily by the tonne into the same ocean water they fleece tourists to play in. ANYONE who still comes to Phuket for the beaches are first-timers, or fools who should know better. Phuket's beaches are a filthy disgrace.

Nothing wrong with jet ski's per se they simply need their own section of beach and be told to stay there.

Yes and preferably so far away they can't be heard or annoy anyone.

The title of this thread is very disingenuous- the incident took place in Phang Nga but the title infers it was in Phuket.

 

As a result of the incident in Phang Nga local operators in PHUKET were warned as well.

 

It would appear to me that the helmsman was showing off as he had a female on board.

Yes, off Phuket coast, but Phang Nga province. Not really important here IMO, but trying to correct another poster with incorrect information is not done.

This is perhaps the 678th warning the hapless army subjects have issued to these reckless clowns.

Nothing to do with the army. This has been going on long time before the army 'took charge'.

True that. But the army has taken declarations, proclamations, crackdowns and hyperbole to a new level. And it means nothing. Ever. It is all just words. And even if they do engage in enforcement, it lasts two weeks, then all is forgotten. Talk about hapless. They are re-defining the meaning of incompetence.
