In a statement to the site, Deborah Moran, the marine services officer at Marine and Ports, said:

“We inspect them every year for their safety equipment and make sure that the crew and new staff are trained in first aid and CPR, Visitors come here and they might not have swum before or might not be used to the water. You have a lot of factors to consider.”
