COVID-19 Operational Guidelines

ATTENTION: Castaway Charter COVID-19 Operational Guidelines

When it comes to COVID-19, we’re not only meeting the legal requirements, Castaway makes it easy to Comply. This sets Castaway apart from the rest when it comes to our Customer’s Safety. Unlike most Charter Boats, Castaway has a very open and free-flow deck and lounge area for its customers. You are not crowded into a small area where everyone is exchanging air and holding on to and touching everything to stay steady. Your Bubble of crew members family and friends won’t even need to wear a mask unless you prefer and for those that do we have them available.

Castaway Charters is being proactive in response to the COVID-19 epidemic as it pertains to our fishing operations. We will be carefully following the WCB and WorkSafeBC’s Covid-19 Health Guidelines to ensure your safety.

Our plan will be posted in the boat and we will be asking for you to please fill out our manifest with all your complete names, location, and phone number. This will assist in the tracing process should any issue arise.

We have acquired all the disinfectant wipes, soaps, and sprays to ensure compliance with cleanliness protocols. While we suggest you bring your own face mask, we will be providing masks for your safety.

Several upgrades and changes have been made to our full stand-up size bathroom for your safety and comfort. Our freshwater electric push button flush toilet has always been there for you but now more important is the fact there is no pumping and switches to move as in most other boat’s toilets. All for your Safety and Comfort.

Castaway’s large 32 ft vessel has plenty of room to spread out and adhere to our social distancing comfortably. Castaway’s large 12’cockpit guarantees you will still be able to fish DOUBLE HEADERS at the back of our boat worry-free.

Castaway Charter’s boat has been resting safely in storage since last season and will be launched in mid-June. Castaway’s boat will be cleaned during your trip and thoroughly disinfected and cleaned after each charter including all fishing equipment. There will be simple procedures in place for approaching the dock and the ramps and loading into the Castaway boat. Once onboard, you will find our full-size bathroom with an electric fresh water flush toilet clean and completely sterilized. All fish cleaning and shipping preparation will be handled according to WorkSafeBC Guidelines.

Book ASAP for this upcoming short season, space is limited.
