The Division of Tourism, Culture and Transportation and the Division of Food Production, Forestry and Fisheries, has taken steps to ensure touting at the Buccoo Reef Marine Park does not take place.
It says these Divisions of the Tobago House of Assembly are working closely with the Trinidad and Tobago Police Service, the Trinidad and Tobago Coast Guard and the Trinidad and Tobago Defence Force Reserves to effect the appropriate measures.
Chief Secretary and Secretary of Tourism, Culture and Transportation, Ancil Dennis, stressed touting in any form will not be tolerated.
Chief Secretary Dennis said “ our reef patrol officers will be on duty to ensure that boats do not go beyond their limit and patrons do notengage in activities that will expose them to COVID-19 or behave in a manner that may put their lives at risk,”.
The Chief Secretary urged all citizens, tour operators and business owners to cooperate with the authorities so as to safeguard themselves and others during the busy Easter period.
Apart from tangible services being offered, Chief Secretary Dennis highlighted the fact that locals and visitors alike are set to experience a higher level of customer service.
