Pattaya Ferry Failed Sailing To Hua HinFerry couldn’t set sail to Hua-Hin due to strong wind and wave. It only set sail around Koh Lan on initial day trip.
PATTAYA-1 January-[PattayaDailyNews]; There were a lot of people who came to register to take part in initiation of Pattaya-Huahin ferry route. The security officers accommodated the passengers.
However, Mr Aekarat Kantharo, director of marine department, disapproved to launch the ferry due to strong wind and high wave. Although the official disallowed to set sail to Hua-Hin, they sailed around Koh Lan island for the test. The official guarantees the safety of the ferry even though the ferry has been shaken by the wave a bit.
Previously, the operator failed in initial trial after they couldn’t dock at Hua-Hin jetty and the captain had to dock at Hua Don pier 10 kilometres away. As a result, they wasted around 2 hours in this case.
In addition, the ferry has refuelling problem that it needs to float out dock for refuelling. Meanwhile, internet users also comment about safety of the ferry and too high fare.
