Bahamas COVID Travel Guidelines For The Holidays

Posted on

FATIGUE FROM BEING HOUSEBOUND?

Looking for a change of scenery?  We get it.  “Pandemic fatigue” is starting to set in for most of us.  Indeed, the idea of escaping the “Covid blues” sounds better and better every day. Covid travel restrictions are important to know.

 

COVID-19 GUIDELINES BELOW

For many affluent travelers, a holiday luxury yacht charter is very appealing.   After all, if you have to practice social-distancing, why not set up camp on a private yacht?

 

MUCH OF CARIBBEAN HAS TOUGH RESTRICTIONS

Unfortunately, much of the Caribbean is still imposing harsh restrictions on tourism.  For example, mandatory tourist quarantines are in place in the British Virgin Islands. It is the most popular yacht charter destination in the world.   We anticipate these restrictions will still be in effect for Christmas and New Year’s Eve.

 

BAHAMAS IS OPEN FOR BUSINESS

Thankfully, there is one tropical destination open for business. That is the Bahamas.

There is an island in the background. The sailboat is all white. There are 6 people on the boat. The boat is facing the upper right side of the photograph

Travel restrictions in the Bahamas have relaxed significantly compared to the start of the year.  Still, there are strict guidelines for Bahamas yacht charter guests.

 

THE COVID-19 GUIDELINES FOR THE BAHAMAS

Below are guidelines in effect as of November 20, 2020, for the holiday season.

 

GET TESTED BEFORE ARRIVAL

These rules apply to every guest over 10 years old.  Each passenger on your yacht must get an RT PCR nasal swab Covid-19 test 5 days or less before arrival.  Test results from any other type of COVID-19 test are unacceptable.  Passengers under the age of 10 do not need to be tested.   All tests must be negative for entering the Bahamas.

 

SUBMIT A HEALTH VISA

Each guest must complete a travel health visa, along with submitting a negative Covid-19 test,.  The application is available online.  First, go to www.travel.gov.bs.  Second, select “International,” and create an account.  Fill out your visa information, upload your negative test results, and submit your application.  Allow up to 72 hours to receive an approval confirmation.  IMPORTANT TO NOTE, you need to print the approval document and bring it with you.  You must present the document to Bahamian officials when entering the country.

 

5 Little Known Facts About The Bahamas

 

PURCHASE COVID-19 HEALTH INSURANCE

You must opt-in for health insurance when you complete your health visa application.  Specifically, you will be covered for any Covid-19 health issues during your time in the Bahamas.  For example, the cost of a mandatory rapid antigen test (required on day 5 of your visit) will be covered.  You’ll also be covered if you require quarantine (up to $7000) or medical evacuation (up to $50,000).  Charter guests staying 4 days or less pay $40 for coverage. Visitors staying more than four days pay $60.

 

TAKE A RAPID ANTIGEN TEST ON DAY 5

You are required to take this test if you stay in the Bahamas for 5 or more days.   You must quarantine aboard your charter yacht while you await the results of the test.  Don’t worry, results are typically texted or emailed within 60 minutes. IMPORTANT NOTE, a rapid antigen test is not required if you have no plans to go ashore during your charter.

 

SUBMIT A DAILY ONLINE HEALTH SURVEY

Charter guests are required to answer an online health questionnaire each day. This survey is used to identify potential Covid-19 symptoms. Any guests who exhibit Covid-19 symptoms during their charter will be required to take a rapid antigen test. Any positive results will require a Covid-19 RT-PCR swab test.

 

FOLLOW ONSHORE SAFETY PROTOCOLS

There are rules and requirements to follow when onshore.  For example, wearing a face mask is mandatory in public places, except on the beaches.  Additionally, social distancing is expected wherever possible in public areas. Finally, be aware that some of the individual islands have evening curfews.

 

IT’S BETTER IN THE BAHAMAS, RIGHT?

It’s nice to know we can escape to the Bahamas during the holidays.  Specifically, since so many restrictions are still in place in our hometowns.  As they say, “It’s Better in the Bahamas.”  Test it out!  Everyone can enjoy a Bahamas yacht charter vacation IF we follow the guidelines listed above.

Caribbean Closes Ports To Yachts Amid COVID-19

Posted on

Drawing. In background is a yellow triangle with a black border. There is a black exdamation point in the center of the triangle. The words, Travel Advisory, are almost stamped across the top section of the triangle. The words are in a black rectangle, and the words are in white lettering. There is a white border around the black box and words.

COVID-19 UPDATE

Thinking of sheltering in place?  First, in a remote destination?  Second, in private?  Third, on a luxury yacht charter vessel?   Great thought, but STOP.  Before you get your hopes up, we have a report.  Getting on a yacht may be a BIG problem right now. This is a result of more islands closing their borders to yachts. It is particularly difficult for all.

 

BEFORE THE CORONAVIRUS

Traditionally, spring is the most popular season for Caribbean yacht charters.  We have fully-crewed superyachts in position. They are ready to accept guests. For example, from the Bahamas to Bonaire.

Unfortunately, the unexpected outbreak of a global viral pandemic has affected the industry.  It brings the idea of a charter in the Caribbean to a screeching halt.

 

ADVISORIES AND CURFEWS

This started as travel advisories and then curfews.  It morphed into full closures of most island nations in the Caribbean.  This affects both air and sea access.

 

GUESTS OR NOT

In some cases, charter guests already onboard may stay onboard.  However, as of March 30, most charter vessels are restricted.  Therefore, they cannot accept new guests in almost every inhabited island in the Caribbean.  For instance, the British Virgin Islands and St. Marten.

 

CLOSED (no re-opening dates announced)

  • TRINIDAD … not only
  • ST LUCIA
  • ARUBA … but also
  • BONAIRE
  • CURAÇAO
  • BRITISH VIRGIN ISLANDS (BVI)
  • MARIE-GALANTE and THE SAINTS
  • DOMINICAN REPUBLIC (DR)
  • DOMINICA … in addition,
  • GRENADA
  • ST. MAARTEN (ST. MARTIN)
  • MARTINIQUE
  • GUADELOUPE
  • ANTIGUA and BARBUDA … lastly,
  • ST KITTS & NEVIS

RESTRICTIONS

Restrictions exist.  For instance,

  • MONTSERRAT.  Mandatory 14 day quarantine
  • USVI (U.S. Virgin Islands).  Closed to all visitors for 30 days.  Charter vessels, hotels, guest houses, etc. are restricted. They may not accept new guests. Guests who have already checked in are advised to return home. They cam remain, if they choose, however.  Airport and Seaports are open.  All non-essential businesses are closed.  Residents are asked to stay at home. All bars across the Territory are closed.  In-house dining is not allowed at restaurants.  Take-out services are permissible. Additionally,
  • ANGUILLA.  Both sea and air ports are closed to all passengers. This applies for an initial 14-day period, from 20 March.
  • BAHAMAS.  Incoming passenger flights are banned.  Significantly, seaports remain open for cargo and supply vessels only.  Moreover, All inter-island sailing and cruising is prohibited.
  • BARBADOS.  Airports and marinas are open.  Whether by yacht or plane, all visitors arriving from the UK, Europe, and the United States will be placed in quarantine for 14 days. Anyone arriving with a travel history from China, Iran, and South Korea are also subject to a 14-day quarantine. Further,
  • DOMINICA.  Airports and seaports closed.  There is an exception for planes and ships bringing vitally-needed cargo and medical relief supplies.
  • ST. VINCENT and the GRENADINES.  Mandatory 14 day quarantine for any passengers arriving from China and other countries.  For instance, the European Union, Iran, South Korea, the United Kingdom, and the United States.

 

 STAY INFORMED / DISCLAIMER

In conclusion, this is not a complete list of all restrictions in the Caribbean.  Border and marina/port closures change rapidly.  Moreover, air traffic suspensions change, too.  In the meantime, 1-800 Yacht Charters will keep this information updated as much as possible. We encourage our blog readers to check official country websites and local news sources for the latest travel advisories and closures/restrictions.

Lionfish Havoc – Florida Yacht Charter Grounds | Yacht Charter

Posted on

BLOG REVISITED

In 2010, we took a look at efforts to control the invasion of lionfish in the Florida Keys.   Recent reports paint a disturbing picture – efforts to control the population have not been successful.  

 

LIONFISH INVASION HURTING NATIVE POPULATION

According to Oregon State scientist Stephanie Green, “There is strong evidence that the lionfish is having negative effects on the native population.  We don’t see any signal that anything is controlling lionfish population.”

Photo of a red and white lionfish swimming over a reef in dark green water

 

 

THE PROBLEM

The problem is simple – lionfish, native to the western Pacific Ocean, have no natural predators in the
Atlantic Ocean. They live up to 15 years, and one female can produce as many as 2 million eggs in one year.

COMPANY PRESIDENT, JANA SHEEDER, COMMENTS

“Many of our Florida yacht charter clients, as well as many bareboat charterers, are avid divers,” reports Jana Sheeder, President and Owner of 1-800 Yacht Charters. “We are hearing more and more tales of multiple lionfish on the reefs in the Florida Keys, as well as the in the cruising grounds in the nearby Bahamas.”

WHAT IS OUR OPTION?

So far, the only viable option to attempt to control the invasion remains the same – eat them!  The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Association continues to recommend aggressive efforts to harvest and consume lionfish. 

OUR SUGGESTION

So, next time you are at your favorite seafood restaurant, instead of ordering an overfished item like tuna, see if lionfish is on the menu! Enjoy a delicious meal AND make a difference!

Yacht Tail Lights running next to her tender - aerial view

 

 

YACHT CHARTER REVIEW

A recent charter guest took the time to share her thoughts about her family’s superyacht experience onboard Azimut yacht TAIL LIGHTS.  What lends credence to her comments is the fact she has chartered three times prior.  In her own words,

“We just got off the boat this morning. This was my fourth trip on a (luxury yacht) charter vessel and found it to be at least equal to but in many ways better than the previous trips I had taken. Captain Steve Kemp was awesome. He was extremely organized and looked after every detail of the trip. When we needed to adjust he was quick to respond and very accommodating. The crew was fantastic and also very accommodating. The girls were all Johnny-on-the-spot with food, drinks, and any other need we had. The staterooms were always looked after and kept pristine during our trip. Very pleasant personalities and fun to talk to. Jeff made sure the boat and tender were operating perfectly and was also very accommodating when we wanted to tour the engine room. The boat itself was appointed very nicely and it was obvious that she had been upgraded recently. It looked brand new. I would highly recommend (yacht) Tail Lights and its crew, particularly Steve the captain. I certainly would look into chartering her again.”
