PELAGIC FLEET – Coronavirus Letter
I March 10, 2020
I am writing to you today to provide information regarding the coronavirus (COVID-19) outbreak and what we at the Pelagic Fleet are doing in response.
But first, we wanted to start with the good news…up to this date, there have been NO CONFIRMED CASES OF CORONAVIRUS IN BAJA CALIFORNIA and all of our trips are proceeding without any interruptions or delays.
However, given that as a valued client of the Pelagic Fleet, your safety has always been, and remains our number one priority, we feel it is necessary to take an additional step to ensure as much as we can the health of our guests as well as our crew. While Mexico at this time is still a very safe place to travel to, in order for us to help keep it that way we are now going to require our guests traveling to us from the following countries to obtain a Health Certificate no more than 5 days old prior to boarding of our vessels. The required countries are:
• South Korea
• Hong Kong
In asking this we fully realized that this is going to be an inconvenience for which we sincerely apologize but we feel it is necessary to do our part in keeping everyone healthy.
In addition, we are also requiring all guests to fill out and sign a travel form indicating where they have traveled in the last 3 months (including entry and exit dates). This form will be verified against the passport by the Mexican Navy.
We are continuing to clean our vessels continuously throughout the day with high-grade disinfectants and have provided ample supplies of hand sanitizer in the salon as well as each cabin.
At this time, we are also waiving the change fees and will change trip dates to any available date without charge.
While some may view this as being very stringent, we feel it is very necessary to do our part to keep all of our guests and crew safe and we hope that everyone can understand why we feel the need to do this.
I hope this gives you confidence in the actions we are taking on your behalf. We are committed to providing you a safe environment. So as of now, our trips are proceeding without any interruptions.
We look forward to welcoming you aboard!
Michael Ann Boyer, CEO, Pelagic Fleet
