We are operating in compliance to an Industry Covid Safe Plan for Tourism Businesses.
We have action plans in place to maintain a clean and healthy environment for all of our guests on board KOA. We take our responsibility for your health and safety seriously. We also acknowledge that this is a cooperative approach, one that we would ask all our passengers to comply with directions.
The vessel thoroughly cleaned at the end of the day from top to bottom with detergent and water. Handrails, seats and internal surfaces are then also disinfected with commercial grade disinfectant. We also have hand sanitiser available on the boat for use throughout the day.
Luke has taken his current flu shot and will also take the vaccine once it becomes available.
Guests also have a responsibility to inform us in advance and at the earliest opportunity if they or any member of their party is: 1. Unwell. 2. Isolating because they are at risk of becoming unwell with Covid-19. 3. From a designated Covid-19 Hot Spot. Regrettably this will mean that member of your group may not attend, and, if he or she has been in contact with all of your party, the rescheduling of your trip.
By checking in with the app you are declaring your health and recent contacts such to participate in the charter. Guests displaying symptoms will be asked to disembark immediately.
Please note: Our team complete the same health screening and undergo regular temperature and and symptom monitoring. All crew have also completed Covid-19 training as per our Covid Safe Plan.
It is important to us to be able to continue to provide once-in-a-lifetime fishing experiences for our guests. Please help us to manage the health and safety of your fellow anglers by cooperating with the measures outlined above. Do the same things for us that you are doing to keep your own friends and family healthy and well!
This includes frequent hand sanitising, covering your nose and mouth when you need to cough or sneeze (sneeze in the crook of your arm or a clean tissue) and observe the rules for physical distancing (1.5m where possible).
