There is nowhere we would rather be right now than out at sea with a small group of people and clean, fresh air and diving with our beautiful giant mantas, dolphins and sharks. We are especially excited about some spectacular encounters with humpback whales over the last week. Job #1 is to keep our guests safe and that includes evolving tighter COVID19 protocols. You can expect the following when diving with Nautilus ;
1- Crew are medically screened between each trip by a medical professional. If there is any doubt about a crew member’s health, we will arrange for a substitute. Captains are also taking all the crews temperatures every morning and will isolate any crew member with a temp greater than 100.4F
2- We have arranged for medical screening of all guests before boarding their ship. We will arrange for a makeup trip and hotel accommodation for any guest presenting as a potential COVID19 patient.
3- Our ships are being deep cleaned with operating room disinfectant between each trip. Crew and our cleaning staff are receiving training and being issued certificates from the medical company supplying the disinfectant. We are continuing to disinfect the public areas of each ship twice a day while at sea.
4- Medical masks are onboard and freely available to anybody who wants one.
5- We are replacing our bottles of hand sanitizer with medical grade hand sanitizer stations installed strategically around each boat.
6- We have contracted for epidemiology testing and certificates for food processing areas, hand rails, tables and public areas when the ships are in port.
7- Crew are receiving suspected case protocol onboard training and certificates. Our ships are all being equipped with 3 standby kits for suspected cases in case of a suspected case and the need to quarantine someone.
Hope to see you soon
Captain Mike and your team at the Nautilus
