PMO’s Priorities for Investment in Marine Tourism

PMO News Portal - Hadi Haghshenas, deputy of maritime affair in Ports and Maritime Organization, pointed out that, unfortunately, Golestan, Mazandaran and Khuzestan provinces were flooded this year, and there were tons of negative advertisements discouraging people to travel to these destinations. However, from March 16 to April 4 this year, marine trips grew by 9%, and 3.2 million people had sea trips during the mentioned period.

Certainly, if the recreational and accommodation facilities in the islands of Hormuz, Qeshm, Lark and Kish are upgraded and increased, considering that the cost of sea trips is much lower than other modes of travel, we will see a dramatic increase in the number of sea trips.

Haghshenas added: In case of an increase in the number of people traveling by sea, Ports and Maritime Organization will also provide more facilities to maritime travel and tourism.
By increasing the number of traffic, the number of vessels and ships will be increased by the Ports and Maritime Organization, and Cultural Heritage, Handicrafts and Tourism Organization of Iran will also consider more options in order to improve the accommodation conditions on the islands and encourage more people to consider marine trips.

Deputy of maritime affair in Ports and Maritime Organization concluded that the first priority is to make ships and boats safer and more comfortable for maritime passengers, and to improve accommodation facilities on the islands. We believe that infrastructure must be developed in order to reach this goal.
