What to expect on a Tour

 

In an effort to make Fishing and Snorkeling as safe as possible for our guest as well as our guides our tours start off with a routine temperature check. Proper logging information will be recorded for contact tracing purposes as per the Ministry of Health. Capt. Dermin will start his day with a brief introduction of our safety protocols and guidelines listed below: 

  • We are requiring everyone on the boat to wear a face covering (buff or mask) throughout the entire day (excluding while eating and drinking).  

  • All boats will be sanitized before and after each adventure day.

  •  All tours will be fully equipped with hand sanitizers, alcohol, and hand soap. 

  • Anglers and Snorkelers are asked to sanitize their hands prior to boarding. 

  • The Belize Tourism Board will not allow guest to share any gear unless proper sanitization of equipment is done between use. All borrowed rods and reels will be cleaned immediately upon the return from tour.

  • Our group tours will remain together and will always maintain distance from other visitors on island trips. 

  • Capt. Dermin and crew will wear a glove when handling food.
