Chief of the Hat Noppharat Thara – Mu Ko Phi Phi National Park Mr Worapoj Lomlim said, “I received a report from officials stationed at Thale Waek (Separated Sea) on Poda Island that many flame jellyfish have been found floating near the coral reef snorkelling area at Koh Gai.

“We are afraid that these flame jellyfish might be dangerous to tourists. Officials have already informed tour boat operators to avoid the area. These flame jellyfish might be brought up from strong winds and waves,” Mr Worapoj said.

“Today (Oct 5) we have still found flame jellyfish at Koh Gai. Flame jellyfish are dangerous. The sting of the flame jellyfish causes burn marks. The injury must be cured immediately. Swimmers should be beware of them,” Mr Worapoj added.
