Tura Charters Visitor Agreement
Welcome to Our Workplace onboard the MV Eastern Voyager
While we respect everyone’s right to make their own personal decision regarding the Covid-19 vaccination, to be able to continue to operate our charters and for all our guests to be able to join us and remain onboard, only fully vaccinated passengers or passengers with evidence of a medical contraindication are permitted and are required to either sign in by way of the Queensland check in app before Boarding the Eastern Voyager or showing proof of your vaccination status. If you don’t have a phone or tablet showing your vaccination status, we can sign you in on our business app and you will be required to show a paper copy of your vaccination certificate and another form of identification with your picture to confirm identification [e.g. Drivers Licence].
Crew policies and protocols have been updated with implemented cleaning and disinfectant schedules put in place as well as a risk assessment expressly for your health & safety to help combat Covid-19.
By working together for everyone’s health and safety we can continue to enjoy being out on the open water with plenty of fresh air fishing in these beautiful remote areas.
We will continue to monitor and update our operation in line with the current Government Directives.
