COVID-19 Boarding Policy
The health and safety of our passengers and staff is our highest priority which is why Eco Abrolhos Cruises has developed a robust COVID-19 boarding policy. Our first line of defence is prevention.
All passengers, crew & contractors were required from the 31st January 2022 to be vaccinated (First & Second dose) to enter Eco Abrolhos venues or services.
From the 17th May 2022 a third Vaccination will also be mandatory if of an age that this is approved by ATAGI.
Proof of vaccination will be required prior to entry in the prescribed form. To avoid boarding congestion this will be requested prior to arrival.
All passengers will be required to undergo COVID-19 screening prior to boarding. This will involve the completion of a Guest Health Declaration Form, RAT Testing & a contactless body temperature check. Eco Abrolhos will have a supply of RAT Tests however there will be charge to guests for RAT Tests used prior to boarding or during the tour (Currently $12 per test)
Boarding will be refused to any guest who returns a positive RAT test OR records a body temperature of 37.5 degrees or higher OR to any guest who is displaying Covid like symptoms. If you believe you may return a Positive RAT due to a Covid infection in the previous 12 weeks please contact us to discuss options.
We recommend that you consider conducting a RAT test before you depart home to ensure you are Negative prior to travel. Whilst travelling please pay particular care to social distancing where possible, practice good hand hygiene and wear a surgical grade Face Mask. Try & avoid areas of high risk transmission in the weeks leading up to your tour.
Eco Abrolhos has implemented a Covid -19 Safety Action Plan that has been developed to meet the WA Health Small Ship Cruising Guidelines. Due to the remote nature of the Kimberley tours this extra level of review has been undertaken to protect your safety.
If a Covid related incident causes disruption to the Eco Abrolhos itinerary post embarkation, Eco Abrolhos will arrange a cruise credit proportional to the disrupted days and to the amount paid in excess of your 20% deposit, less any non-refundable expenses which we may have reasonably incurred for example medical costs, isolation accommodation etc.
Should you have any questions about boarding or the Eco Abrolhos Covid Plan please call us (08) 9964 5101 to discuss.
