Covid 19 Information for KEKOA Guests


Health Directions & KEKOA

As per Queensland Health’s direction, KEKOA will be able to resume the business of fishing from midday June 1, 2020 when all Queensland tourism businesses with gatherings of less than 20 persons will do likewise.

We have precautions in place to maintain a clean and healthy environment for all our guests including strict Covid-19 sanitisation protocols and have completed a thorough risk assessment. The protocols are in place for the protection of both our guests and crew and we ask that everyone abides by crew direction in this regard.

Our team has also completed the required training to achieve the accreditation of Covid Clean.

Due to the size of KEKOA we can maintain our regular passenger and crew numbers whilst still abiding by Queensland Health directions which are:
1. Keep 1.5m away from others as much as you can. This does not apply to persons you live with.
2. 4sqm between persons when indoors.
3. Hand hygiene (Sanitisers are available on board in the saloon and bathroom areas.)
4. Respitory hyiene.
5. Frequent environmental cleaning and disinfection.


Your responsibilities as a KEKOA guest

We strongly encourage all KEKOA guests to have appropriate travel insurance in place for their entire trips including their time on KEKOA. Unfortunately this pandemic has shown us that scenarios we never imagined before really exist!

Guests also have a responsibility to inform us in advance if any member of their party is:
1. Unwell
2. Isolating because they are at risk of becoming unwell with Covid-19.
Regrettably this will mean the cancellation of your trip on the original dates. We will be happy to reschedule your trip for alternative dates if we can.

It is important to us to be able to continue to provide once-in-a-lifetime fishing experiences for our guests. Please help us to manage the health and safety of our crew by cooperating with the measures outlined above. Do the same things for us that you are doing to keep your own friends and family healthy and well.

This includes frequent handwashing, covering your nose and mouth when you need to cough or sneeze (sneeze in the crook of your arm or a clean tissue) and observe the rules for physical distancing.

You must inform us in advance

If you are unwell

And you must not attend your charter without doctor’s approval!
