At Timeout Fishing Charters we would like to provide you with an update on the evolving situation with Covid-19 and precautions we are taking.
As our fishing Charters have reopened to the public. The health and safety of our staff and customers is top priority and we’re taking a number of steps to increase your protection while out fishing with us.
Our management team are regularly meeting to ensure we have the latest information and are following advice and guidance from Australia’s Department of Health.
We’re maintaining stringent hygiene and cleaning practices on the boat with staff thoroughly cleaning the boat before and after every trip, including wiping down and sanitizing all surfaces and equipment.
Aboard our vessel, we have hand sanitizer now located in the toilet as usual along with one located in the middle of the boat and another also located up near our cabin door which are always available. Soap and water are also located in the middle of the boat for your use, we emphasize the importance of frequent hand washing and good personal hygiene with signage.
To provide adequate “social distancing” we have reduced our maximum compacity within our boat to 7 passengers. In addition to this we’re also screening staff and passengers for potential symptoms.
We believe one of the best places to be is in the fresh air and away from the crowds.
We do ask that everyone follow regulations and not book on if they are recovering or have Covid 19, or have been near someone with Covid 19 or are unwell in any manner, this includes having a cough, cold, sore throat, fever or any signs of illness or if you have returned home from overseas in the last month. For us to be able to stay open we do need for this to happen and should anyone turn up for a charter that we deem unwell they will not be able to board the boat for everyone’s safety.
FOR ANYONE WITH A BOOKING INSIDE THE NEW LOCKDOWN AREAS PLEASE LET US KNOW SO THAT WE CAN EITHER ISSUE YOU WITH A REFUND OR MOVE YOUR TRIPS TO ANOTHER TIME WHEN YOU ARE ABLE TO ATTEND AGAIN.
Also as per new regulations we will have a manifest onboard for all trips that will require some info for each passenger that will need to be filled out, this is mandatory for everyone per government regulations as without us following these rules we will not be able to continue operating.
As time goes on we will look at what else may need to be changed and update you accordingly.
