Registered jet-ski and parasail operators have accepted an order from Phuket authorities to suspend their businesses until the Games conclude on November 24.
There's even the possibility that greater limits could be placed on the operating hours of the jet-skis.
The President of the Jet-Ski Association of Patong, Nucha Petchvimol, confirmed tonight that jet-ski operators and parasailers had been ordered to suspend operations during the Games.
''There will be a three-day jet-ski competition on at Patong from November 17-19,'' he said. ''Those are the only jet-skis people should see off Phuket until later in the month.''
People who have seen Patong without sunbeds, umbrellas and now jet-skis say the beach is delightful and wish that it could stay that way.
According to victims who have contacted Phuketwan, jet-ski scams that have damaged Phuket's reputation continue almost every time there is a crash.
Removing the jet-skis would remove the problem and make a clear statement about Phuket's commitment to environmental tourism and a balance with nature.
In a local newspaper poll, 80 percent of those who have voted so far say that jet-skis have no placer on Phuket's beaches.
