Enhanced health and safety Protocols
A SAFE SAIL
Here is a list the safety protocols and health measures that we are going to implement in each of our cruises.
1. Ozone generators to disinfect all suites.
Before check-in, we will use one of the most effective equipment for the disinfection and elimination of bacteria, fungi, and viruses, as well as harmless to humans: Ozone Generators.
With this disinfection process, the cabins will be completely clean and disinfected from any dangerous residue that may affect the health of our passengers.
The use of ozone gas to disinfect the air and surfaces is a better option than other disinfectants due to its rapid decomposition, without leaving hazardous residues for the passenger.
The World Health Organization (WHO) recommends ozone as the most effective disinfectant to eliminate all kind of microorganisms.
2. Our pre-boarding controls.
Each of our passengers will undergo the necessary medical check-ups before boarding. If someone is considered at risk, additional tests will be submitted for the safety of all.
Temperature controls will be carried out on each of the crew members on board throughout the trip. This procedure will allow us to identify any potential health risk on the boats.
Health controls on the crew.
The crew is fully prepared for you to live a unique experience in the Peruvian jungle. For this reason, each member of our crew will undergo an exhaustive health check before and during the trip
Health checks will be carried out by a specialist doctor on an interim basis. Each control will be reported in a document: Jungle Experiences Medical Pass, which will monitor the health of each crew member.
The entire team must undergo the test to discard COVID-19 before beginning operations.
All baggage from each of our passengers will go through a disinfection process before boarding.
3. Enhanced sanitary care measures.
In compliance with the protocols established by the Ministry of Health (MINSA), each cruise is cleaned and disinfected before setting sail. Moreover, Jungle Experiences will intensify the cleaning and disinfection of high-traffic public areas and contact points.
After every boarding and disembarkation, a disinfection procedure will be carried out. On another note, the cabins and other public areas of the boats are going to be cleaned and disinfected frequently. To improve the disinfection of cruise ships, the following actions will take place:
Each passenger will receive a mask as a gift.
The cleaning frequency. Disinfection and cleaning of public areas frequency will be increased. In addition, all cabins will be cleaned three times a day.
Antibacterial gel dispenser. Each deck will have hand sanitizers in a visible and accessible location. In addition, our staff will provide this gel before entering and after leaving the dining room.
Full board service. All meals, as well as the drinking stations, will comply with all the necessary protocols.
Personal hygiene. We will request all passengers to carry out personal sanitary measures: wash their hands frequently, cover their nose and mouth with a handkerchief or forearm, when coughing or sneezing.
4. Responsible Social Distancing.
In order to guarantee responsible social distancing, we will monitor the capacity of public areas frequently throughout the trip.
Transfer to the boarding port. The buses that will transport passengers will go through the same control protocols mentioned above. Each passenger will have an assigned seat on the transfer bus. This is to keep the required social distancing measures.
Social distancing on board. The activities in each of the boats will be carried out as regularly, reducing and controlling the capacity. In addition, slight modifications will be made in some cruise areas to ensure compliance with the required social distance. Depending on the cruise capacity, the following has been implemented: if it is at 50% of its capacity, meals will be served in two shifts: Breakfast, lunch, and dinner
Our priority always will be, to take all the precautions and necessary measures in order to guarantee the good health and safety of each of our passengers and crew members.
5. Enhanced medical resources.
We will have a paramedic on board, duly trained to attend any possible case of COVID-19, as well as other illnesses. The paramedic will have the following kits and supplies available to carry out his tasks:
COVID-19 tests with fast results.
Supplies to attend other types of diseases or ailments.
Constant training on health, safety, and constant training for our crew.
In addition, Jungle Experiences has added a new member to the team: Public Health Director – Responsible for supervising and improving all disinfection and infection prevention processes
6. The safety of our cruises is extended all the way to shore.
