    COVID-19 Sanitization and Social Distancing Policy

    LANDING

  • We will be encouraging online reservations and payment to reduce crowding of landing office.
  • Instructional Placards will be at the entrance of the landing explaining the protocols on the property.
  • Staff will be wearing face masks while in the work place.
  • Hand sanitizer will be placed in the landing for the conveinance of customers as well as workers.
  • All commonly touched surfaces will be sanitized hourly.
  • All employees will be trained in the Sanitation Protocols and document the training.
  • DOCK

  • We will be establishing appropriate shoreside passenger waiting areas for each vessel.
  • Each fishing vessel will board at different times.
  • We will maintain the cleanliness of the dock carts and hand rails to the best of our ability.
  • DAY BOATS

  • Cleaning and Disinfection Efforts - At this time, in addition to routine cleaning and disinfection strategies, vessels may consider more frequent cleaning of commonly touched surfaces such as handrails, countertops, restrooms and doorknobs. The primary mode of COVID-19 virus transmission is believed to be through respiratory droplets that are spread from an infected person through coughing or sneezing to a susceptible close contact within about 6 feet.
  • When safe and possible ensure there is 6 feet of rail space between each person.
  • Have all rails, counters and seating areas cleaned as frequently as possible but as reasonable for the circumstances.
  • When practical only permit persons in the galley who are ordering and consuming food. When possible, all patrons should be invited to eat outside as is reasonable and prudent.
  • Encourage passengers to observe sanitization and social-distancing parameters to the extent reasonably possible, while being considerate of the customer experience
  • Crew notifies Captain immediately if Covid-19, other respiratory illness of flu-like symptoms develop. According to the Center for Disease Control and Prevention ("CDC") the following may appear as symptoms of infection within 2 - 14 days after exposure to the virus:
  • Fever
  • Cough
  • Shortness of breath or difficulty breathing
  • Chills
  • Repeated shaking with chills
  • Muscle pain
  • Headache
  • Sore throat
  • Loss of taste
  • Captain notifies (US Coast Guard, Landing, Owner, County Health, etc.) if crew member or passenger develops symptoms and to take steps and implement responsive measures, if any, directed by County Health officials. Such measures may include imposition of physical separation of passengers to the extent possible within the physical confines of the Boat, early trip termination, diversion to nearer port for passenger treatment and/or medical intervention, and other individualized intercession as circumstances warrant.
  • OVERNIGHT BOATS

  • Cleaning and Disinfection Efforts - At this time, in addition to routine cleaning and disinfection strategies, vessels may consider more frequent cleaning of commonly touched surfaces such as handrails, countertops, and doorknobs. The primary mode of COVID-19 virus transmission is believed to be through respiratory droplets that are spread from an infected person through coughing or sneezing to a susceptible close contact within about 6 feet. Therefore, widespread disinfection is unlikely to be effective. (CDC Guidance)
  • The bunks pads and all bunk room surfaces and hand holds should be cleaned between each trip.
  • All passengers must bring their own sleeping bag and pillow for overnight trips.
  • When safe and possible, ensure there is 6 feet of rail space between each person.
