A salvage mission has been launched after a pirate-ship-themed floating restaurant sank off Pattaya on Monday.

The tourist boat, named Krakenian The Private of Pattaya, capsized in heavy seas about two kilometres from Pattaya city on Monday evening.

Fortunately, the tourist boat-restaurant was closed at the time due to bad weather, and no injuries or deaths were reported from the sinking.
