A local boat owner is sounding the alarm in light of an unfolding development that which he describes as a disaster waiting to happen.
The situation involves a boat tour company which has acquired a fleet of dinghies, and is planning to having them self driven by tourists along the island’s coast.
Aaron Alexander is concerned that such an idea could have disastrous implications, if licensing for such an activity is not properly policed.
Alexander has called on the relevant authorities in the Marine Sector to ensure that the rules are adhered to, as there are many dangers at sea.
Alexander has called on local authorities to disclose whether the island has the capacity to properly monitor such an operation in St Lucia.
