Covid 19 Health and Saety Procedures

Bahamas boat tours has been in operation since 2008 specializing in private and exclusive boating experiences for guests from all around the world. Being the TOP provider for fishing and boat tours in the Bahamas, the satisfaction and safety of our guests has always been at the forefront of our operation.

With the re-opening our tourism economy in the midst of the COVID-19 pandemic, we have implemented additional safety and sanitization procedures that will ensure the health and safety of both our guests and crew. Our goal is to give our guests and crew peace of mind while being in the “new normal” of COVID-19.

Our company has complied with ALL new regulations implemented by The Government of The Bahamas and all crew members are in possession of the COVID-19 compliance training certificate. Below are all of the changes being implemented here at Bahama Boat Tours to ensure a safe environment on all of our boats during tours.
Please note that as COVID-19 is fluid in nature any of these protocols may be changed or adjusted in compliance to any new regulations in our industry. All changes have been made in accordance to suggestions by the Center of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC).

-At this time we strongly discourage the use of cash payments for any of our tours. Cashless payment of your tour can be made through PayPal or Zelle (links on our website)
