Mandatory procedures followed by our crew

AUTHOR Melissa Sotomayor

All crew members residing in the Galapagos Islands will be tested before boarding. The crew arriving from the continent will have to pass all the controls and procedures established by the local Galapagos airports.
They will follow complete disinfection procedures before boarding Ecoventura’s yachts.

All crew members will be closely monitored on a daily basis for any symptoms (including a temperature reading) while aboard. They will be required to wear the appropriate PPE (personal protective equipment) based on their roles and responsibilities and will have to maintain a social distance of at least 3 feet between themselves and with guests.

They have received detailed training on Ecoventura’s sanitation protocols, in addition to learning how to identify flu or virus-like symptoms, and follow procedures as stated in the ISM (International Safety Management) manual.

Hand hygiene is the main measure of prevention and control of infection, and will be done with water and soap, following the right technique of the World Health Organization.

No crew member is allowed to disembark on any populated island, unless ordered by the captain of the yacht.
While on their disembarkation period, crew members have been recommended to self-isolate and their health will be closely monitored by our Human Resources Department.
