Covid-19

We are very happy to be running our boat trips again and we can’t wait to get back out on the water with our passengers. 

We may need a little bit of extra time during your trip to ensure that everything is safe and in-line with government protocols. Our focus remains providing our guests with a wonderful day out and an experience to remember.

Below we have outlined our COVID-19 measures. Please carefully read them prior to your trip so you can fully relax whilst onboard and enjoy the experience.

We must insist that anybody who is unwell or showing symptoms of COVID-19 does not attend for their booking. Please contact us as soon as possible so that we can arrange to move your booking where possible. 

We take a maximum of 12 passengers per trip per boat. Our Wavedancer and Iain-Og boats are 38ft and 42ft respectively, with plenty outdoor space to accommodate everybody comfortably. However, it is important for guests to be aware that they may be sharing the spaces on the boat with people from outside of their household (unless the boat is booked on a private basis).

Our two RIBS, Storo and Sea Explorer can also take up to 12 passengers. We hope to utilise these boats as much as possible over the season but as they are smaller COVID restrictions may prevent us from using them (unless the boat is booked on a private basis). Even when COVID restrictions allow, it is at the skipper’s discretion as passenger safety is most important. 

By booking and paying for your trip you agree to follow the outlines Covid-19 measures. Guests will take personal responsibility for social distancing while on board and ashore at our destinations. Islay Sea Adventures accepts no responsibility for maintaining social distancing among the group.

Hand sanitiser will be provided on board, however if you have your own personal hand sanitiser, we suggest you take it along. Masks are not mandatory while enjoying the outdoor areas of the boat (deck & flybridge) however, social distancing must be practiced. Please note we do not provide masks onboard. 

All our boats are cleaned thoroughly before and after each trip, with anti-bacterial and anti-covid disinfectants. This ensures a clean, safe environment for our guests to enjoy.

Due to social distancing requirements, we may be required to split our groups in order to seat people safely during lunch time. Especially groups made up of different households.
