Phuripat Theerakulpisut, Director of the Phuket Marine Office, said that there was an exceptionally low tide at the time, and the boat had not taken the correct course.

It hit one of a number of concrete blocks installed on the sea bed to prevent boats anchoring in a protected sea grass area, which holed the boat.

The organisers of the cruise were not available for comment.
