With the latest Government Gazette, the Tourism minister has stated that “Guided tours by boat ” are now allowed to resume, provided strict Covid-19 Protocols are followed.
This is very exciting news, as you all might know, all our vessels have been grounded since March this year.
Despite being unable to operate the past 4 months, we did take the time to ensure that all our boats are prepared to resume operations and that measures are in place to prevent the risk of infection.
We have a solid Covid-19 “Risk Assessment” documents and have ensured that all steps are followed. Please note that we will carry 60% capacity onboard our vessels for now, as per Government regulations.
Having said that, we will be starting off with our private charters again onboard and look forward to Welcoming you again!
Just a quick heads up to let you all know what is happening.
Recently recreational fishing on boats was allowed again, with the sailing boat fraternity just allowed to reopen.
Unfortunately for us, we are still waiting for word as to when we can resume operations. We are constantly monitoring the situation and as soon as we hear anything, we will be posting all the information on our websites and social media platforms.
Here at Madevu, we pride ourselves with ensuring that we remain compliant interms of the SAMSA Regulations and ensuring that our vessels and crew onboard them on continuously up-to-date with training requirements.
Before lockdown, all our staff got involved in a training exercise to test their skills and to ensure that they always know what to do, should they encounter and emergency situation.
Apart from monthly drills carried out, this drill was of particular importance, as it dealt with rescuing someone from the water and ensuring their safety.
