Keywords:Marine tourism, generic tourism legislation, ecological sensitivity, coastal zone
Marine tourism is a new subject of legal enquiry in South Africa. After defining “marine tourism”, this paper explores the range of legal aspects of marine tourism by relying on the BLT model. The paper also analyses the extent to which generic tourism legislation in the national and provincial spheres of government affects marine tourism. The paper then examines the application of instances of municipal legislation to marine-tourism activities before concluding that there is unquestionably room for a comparative survey leading to the drafting of model legislation doing justice to the importance of marine tourism in the South African economy as well as
the ecological sensitivity of the coastal zone.
