Re: Another snorkeller arrested in Akumal bay today
" ... However, greater clarity of the rules is also needed"
That will go along way to solving the issues here. The Akumal Bay situation sounds a lot like what happened at Hanauma Bay on Oahu years ago, but the Hawaiians handled it quite a bit better than the Mexicans did.
" ... what the most current status is .. "
It seems like only the kayak guy knows and what the rules are today might not be what they are tomorrow. I've been saying if they posted the rules, they kayak guy would probably tear them down down as it would constrain his abilities to modify them as he sees fit.
There's also the whole topic of selected enforcement. Some people might be doing something that might be against the rules and getting away with it some days, other days different story. Like going 10 over the speed limit on the highway. Just because a cop doesn't pull you over every single time doesn't mean it's permitted.
