Covid-19 Safety Measures

As air travel begins to open up and people are looking for a stress-free, safe, vacation experience, we are working hard to ensure this is available for our charterers.

We have completed renovations to our front office, adjusted our systems and updated our safety procedures with the health of our charter guests and staff in mind.

We take you and your health very seriously and have taken precautions to help keep you and your family safe whilst sailing with us and to give you peace of mind so you can enjoy your time out on the water to the fullest.

Here is what you can expect from Barefoot Yacht Charters when you book a charter with us:

We have aligned our cleaning procedures with the current guidance of the relevant authorities including the WHO, CDC and local operating governments.

Fully Vaccinated charterers now only have to quarantine in St Vincent and the Grenadines for 48 hours

Guests who have been fully vaccinated for 2 weeks are able to enjoy a short quarantine time and sail unrestricted through our pristine islands. For unvaccinated guests, the second week of quarantine may be done onboard your yacht.

No vaccine? Barefoot can arrange the second week of quarantine to be done onboard your yacht.

During quarantine aboard, barefoot charterers are allowed, upon request, to visit any one of 5 quarantine approved anchorages which includes the Tobago Cays. During this quarantine period guests may swim and snorkel around the yacht.

Charterers may also request permission to go sailing for a two hour period every day.

As Protocols Change

  • Please note that this protocol keeps changing , so we advise you to check them often.
  • When you book with us- and if the protocol prevents you from going through with your charter or sailing school at the time you had planned, we will reschedule with no extra charge.
  • We take the Covid-19 and other safety precautions very seriously- and welcome you to a safe environment at our base, in our apartments and on our yachts.

As we adjust our schedules and flow of staff and guests to support recommendations by the W.H.O, we ask for your patience and understanding as we move through this first phase of reopening. Thank you and we look forward to seeing you!
