Here at the Sailing Collective, we have long known the value of staying away from the crowds and voyaging into the more remote regions. Now we find ourselves at the forefront of the future of travel where small groups and intimate experiences are not only the best way to see the world, but also the safest.
Although our trips are already well situated for the new reality of travel we have gone above and beyond to make every experience as safe as possible. Here is what we are doing and what you can do to help as you join us on a Sailing Collective journey.
We closely monitor travel advisories in all the locations we sail. Our commitment to safety starts well before we ever set foot on a sailing vessel; it is the first thing we think about when planning a voyage.
Prior to your journey, please read our Covid Guest Agreement. Each traveler is required to complete this agreement prior to sailing with us.
The Sailing Collective Crew is fully vaccinated. To travel with Sailing Collective in 2022, we require guests to provide proof of vaccination or proof of recovery in the last 180 days. For the safety and comfort of our guests, we honor limited health-related exceptions. Please contact us with questions or if you believe you may be eligible for a health-related exemption.
We have added additional flexibility to your travel planning. In cases where Sailing Collective is required to cancel or reschedule a voyage, or you are unable to travel due to government-mandated travel restrictions, we will hold the option to reschedule your trip at no cost.
We pay careful attention to world news and how it impacts the safety of travel. For guidance during the COVID pandemic, we look to the CDC and WHO and consult local authorities for up-to-date information that guides our decision-making. We stay informed and communicate directly with you before and during your journey. Decisions will be made with the safety of everyone involved as the most important factor.
Prior to your journey, please read our Covid Guest Agreement. Each traveler is required to complete this agreement prior to sailing with us. If applicable, each guest must complete any government-mandated quarantine prior to embarking on the journey.
During the voyage, any symptom of illness including fever or cough will be evaluated and may result in appropriate steps to end the journey for one or all guests and crew members depending on circumstances.
During the journey, your crew will be included in your quarantine family. Masks will not be required onboard. Boats will be thoroughly sanitized prior to your arrival and our standard of cleanliness will be even more stringent than usual.
Both crew and passengers are required to follow local regulations, including respecting social distancing and wearing appropriate face coverings when dealing with the world outside of the boat.
Meals ashore will be available based on local regulations and your own comfort level. Depending on your trip there may be opportunities for outdoor dining ashore or possibly picnics set up with food from a local establishment. We can also arrange to have all meals onboard and forgo dining out during your journey.
