Covid-19 Update 06.07.2020

 

How will this affect the way we operate our charters?

Due to government guidelines we are only able to operate with reduced numbers. With the current 2 metre guideline in place we can only accept 4 divers maximum on each trip rather than our normal capacity of 8. Please take the time to read through the information below.  We will update you all as soon as new guidelines are announced.

Unfortunately we are unable to provide powerboat charters at this time.
MARINA UPDATE

 

  • Until the 15th July only 1 TOILET will be open, which is only accessible by fob, so Jason will have to open this for anyone who requires to use this.

  • Until 15th July the Marina Cafe will not be open unfortunately.  There are places within a short drive where you can get hot foods/drinks which will be covered in the Skippers Briefing.

  • As from the 10th July in Scotland it will be MANDATORY to wear face masks in all shops, this will include any shop in the marina and also the marina reception.

  • Trolleys will be available for divers to take equipment to the boat. There will be antibacterial spray laid beside them, please spray down before and after use.

  • Once through the pontoon security gate, please use the hand sanitiser on the left before boarding.

BOAT UPDATE

  • Please ensure you bring a face mask/covering.

  • No mask buckets will be available until further notice. You have the option of rinsing your mask in the sea or with a bottle of water, but please do not spit in your mask whilst on the boat.

  • We will have hand sanitiser on board but if you can bring a bottle of your own, even better!

  • For now, the skipper will have to remain as "hands off" as possible, this will mean;

  • Divers loading/offloading the boat themselves while remaining 2m from others unless from the same households.

  • Divers kitting/de-kitting themselves while adhering to the social distancing rules

  • After dives, divers must make their own way back aboard themselves, the skipper will brief all with the options that have been put into place here

  • Until the 15th July sadly no teas/coffees/hot chocolates etc so you should bring your own out on the boat or have your own back at the marina.

COVID Procedure Acceptance Form - IMPORTANT

 

Your safety is our number one priority.  Please can we ask each diver to complete an acceptance form prior to diving with us. Please print this form and bring it with you. If you need help completing the form or do not have access to a printer please contact us.


The form can be found here.

 

Important information for divers aboard the Starfish Enterprise

 

  • Customers will be asked to stay in their seat where possible.

  • Divers will be expected to be as self-sufficient as possible.  The skipper will be unable to assist with kitting up/de-kitting and with entry-exit procedures.

  • Buddy checks must be performed whilst maintaining a 2 metre distance, unless from the same household. Emergency regulator checks must be performed using the purge button and not placed in the divers’ mouth. 

  • No spitting in masks whilst on board the boat. Where possible please use anti-fogging liquid (apparently half a potato does the same trick!) and rinse with a bottle of water.

  • Please keep your regulator in your mouth at all times when buddy checks are completed and you are ready for entry.

  • When being recovered from the water please keep your regulator in your mouth at all times until you are sat down in your designated seat.

  • All personal possessions should be kept in your own dry bag (including PPE, phones, keys, food & drinks) and stored close to your own kit using the bench rails.

Where do we meet before the dive?

The meeting point will be the visitor’s car park next to the Holy Loch Marina reception (PA23 8QB). Please maintain a 2 metre distance (unless from the same household). Please remain here until the skipper has given a full briefing on the area and how COVID has affected the facilities on offer.  DO NOT go down to the pontoons without permission.

Divers will have all kit assembled, bare essentials (mask, gloves, fins etc) in a mesh bag or similar (no boxes) and be in your drysuit before heading down to the vessel.  Space will be limited so please don't bring all your spares with you. Take the time to check your kit beforehand.

After the brief you will be asked to use your hand sanitiser (if you are not wearing gloves) and make your way one at a time to board the boat. The skipper will designate a seat for you.
 

Pricing & Pickup Locations

We are currently not permitted to pick up divers from any other port or marina so all diving will be based from the Holy Loch Marina until guidelines permit us to travel to alternative destinations.

In these current circumstances our prices will temporarily increase to £50 per diver per day based on 2 dives. We can accommodate 4 divers maximum until the 2m guideline is lifted.

 

Payments

Payments will be made in the normal way via our website prior to divers arriving at the marina.


You will see the change in prices and restrictions on locations during the booking process.

 

Cancellations

Normal terms & conditions apply.
