Please view latest government regulations regarding COVID, click “Covid-19-coronavirus-what-you-can-and-cant-do“ on the Government website. If any Federal and/or State government rules or mandates change then questions may be superseded to the latest rules.
Will you continue with cruises?
Our cruises will continue to operate as normal within the current Government guidelines.
Are there any restrictions that will affect my booking?
For more information, please read “Covid-19-coronavirus-what-you-can-and-cant-do“ on the State Government website.
All guests are required to also wear a mask within the indoor areas of the boat and may remove them when drinking, eating or swimming. This means you will have to have one handy if you enter any of the indoor spaces on the boat. Please liaise with crew on the day for what is allowed in certain areas of the boat, as each boat is laid out differently.
Do we have to be vaccinated?
Proof of vaccination and appropriate ID, or an exemption issued by the Australian Immunisation Register is required on licensed boats or if you have an obtained an occasional liquor license. However, there are a couple of boats that are requesting passengers are double vaccinated, this will be confirmed at the time of booking.
For the latest Government information please read “Proof-of-covid-19-vaccination-expand-state-wide-monday-31-january” as to what applies to you and your cruise.
Do we need to check in?
Each boat will offer either the Safe App or manual contact register or both. Please advise your guests that sign-in will be required.
What happens if the charter can not go ahead due to social distancing restrictions or there is a lockdown?
If the boat cannot operate due to Government restrictions for WA only (this does not apply if you have people coming from any other state or Territory) the money goes into credit for a later stage.
What happens if I am from interstate or have guests coming from interstate or overseas?
You must comply with all current WA Government regulations. If you or your guests are unable to get here due to WA Government restrictions, then this is at your own risk. The charter will still go ahead if it complies with current Government COVID policies relating to your cruise.
What can you do to minimise the risk?
Practising good hand and sneeze/cough hygiene is the best way to minimise the risk from COVID-19. You should:
1) Wash your hands frequently with soap and water for at least 20 seconds, before and after eating, and after going to the toilet.
2) Cover your cough and sneeze, dispose of tissues, and use alcohol-based hand sanitiser.
3) If unwell, then please do not attend the cruise and avoid contact with others. Consider deferring and seek healthcare advice.
4) Exercise personal responsibility for social distancing measures if possible

It is possible, but is advisable to have as few stops as possible. It takes a while to dock a boat and it can sometimes be quite disruptive to the cruise journey and other guests. However, if you need to pickup entertainment during your cruise – that’s fine, we do this all the time. Best though to chat with one of our knowledgeable Cruise Managers about the best pickup location for your entertainment prior to the day of the cruise to ensure smooth running of your cruise.
