What had to happen happened once again. As everywhere a Koh Tao, 95% of the boats don't hesitate not to launch the propellers without EXTREME vigilance... this with untrained sailors-bridges and mostly coming from neighbouring Myanmar and not speaking the language that screams coupled captain has a majority of guides and instructors trained too... This gives a real butchery.
