The Nautilus Belle Amie is back at sea on charter and our guests are very very happy to be in the water! While we have resumed limited operations, the virus situation is dynamic and the situation is changing from week to week, therefore it might be that we have to temporarily shut down operations again.
Our approach has been collaborative with the government including parks, port captain and the Mexican navy. We have heavily invested in crew training, equipment and measures to keep everyone onboard as safe as possible which includes the development of a 60 page virus protocol document that we have trained on and shared with government officials along with our ideas on processes and procedures. That type of thinking and understanding of our commitment to everyone’s safety is what led to the decision of the local port captain to issue our departure clearances.
We remain optimistic but equally cautious and careful.
