Keeping everyone on our ships healthy, safe and enjoying their adventure has always been and continues to be vital to us.  We expect our team to lead by example in upholding safety regulations and procedures.  In addition to our regular protocols, we have implemented additional measures to address the current pandemic, including creating a "boating bubble" and a 19-day cycle for Fair Jeanne voyages. We will continue to monitor the situation to align with the current government protocols and will amend this as appropriate. 

Documentation of a negative laboratory test result must be presented before boarding the ship. The test must be performed using a COVID-19 molecular polymerase chain reaction (or PCR) test and must be taken within 72 hours before the scheduled departure.

Anyone coming aboard the ship will be required to fill out COVID-19 screening form


Additionally, five days before joining the ship for overnight camps, everyone must: 

  • Limit and, where possible, avoid all contact with others for five days before joining the ship

  • When this is not possible to avoid all contact with others, you must keep to a minimum of 2 meters or 6-foot distance and wear a mask.

  • Take your meals either in isolation or at a 6-foot distance from others in your household.

  • If possible, do not share a washroom.  If not possible, wipe all surfaces and wash hands before and after using the bathroom, with special care not to touch your face.

  • Monitor and report your temperature and overall health in a pre-trip log.

  • Wash your hands frequently (every time you touch your face or a surface)

  • Keep disinfectant wipes at hand and frequently clean surfaces. 

  • Before boarding the ship, trainees and crew will have their temperature taken

  • Before boarding the ship, crew, trainees, and volunteers must produce proof of a negative COVID test taken in the last 72 hours 

  • You must provide this documentation to join the adventure. 

Also, we made the following modifications to the ship and our operations:

  • Limiting the number of people aboard the ship

  • Increasing air circulation – added new porthole screens to increase airflow

  • Implementing new, more robust cleaning schedules

  • Providing more opportunities for hand sanitation and hand washing

  • Creation of a shipboard isolation space(s)

  • Temperature screening

  • Additional COVID-19 training for our crew
