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 MASKS ARE NOW A MUST, PASSENGERS WILL BE REQUIRED TO WEAR FACE MASKS ONBOARD THE BOAT IF THERE IS 8 OR MORE PASSENGERS ON THE BOAT AT ANY ONE TIME, FOR 7 OR LESS PEOPLE ONBOARD FACEMASKS WILL NOT NEED TO BE WORN, UNLESS EXEMPT BY THE CHILDRENS AGE RULE. TEMPERATURE CHECKS WILL ALSO BE DONE BEFORE BOARDING THE BOAT
RECORD KEEPING IS ALSO IN PLACE WE HAVE A QR CODE IN PLACE AND FOR THOSE THAT CANNOT DO QR CODES THEN A MANUAL WRITTEN SYSTEM IS IN PLACE. EVERY CUSTOMER MUST BE SIGNED IN WITH NAME AND PHONE NUMBER. THIS IS MANDATORY BY GOVERNMENT REGULATIONS
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 If they have been told to isolate for any reason or are unwell with any illness including Covid, Gastro or having a cough, cold, sore throat, fever. 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. ALSO THE CAPTAINS CABIN WILL BE OUT OF BOUNDS TO ALL PASSENGERS PLEASE DO NOT ENTER THIS AREA.
As time goes on we will look at what else may need to be changed and update you accordingly.
