Health and Safety practices aboard Magic Yachts
As we adapt to our new normal of living with the persistent challenges of the Covid-19 pandemic, we have implemented health and safety protocols as mandated by the BC Health Authorities. As of July 2021, our vessels are now operating again at reduced capacity to ensure your safety and the safety of our crew.
We wish to share with you the new protocols that we have introduced to ensure that when you come aboard, you can do so with confidence.
VACCINE PASSPORT PROTOCOL
The BC vaccine passport will be implemented by Magic Yacht Charters. This passport comes into effect on September 13th, 2021 and it requires that people attending events (see: B.C. Vaccine Card) to show proof of vaccination in order to enter any MYC vessel. As of September 13th, guests are only required to have received the first dose. However, as of October 24th, 2021 you must demonstrate via the vaccine passport that you have been fully vaccinated, by at least 7 days previous, in order to board (2 doses of either Pfizer, Moderna, AstraZeneca or a mixed dose of these vaccines, or 1 dose of Johnson & Johnson).
All guests of MYC are required to show proof of vaccination upon arrival and they have 2 options of what proof they can show (with the official BC vaccination passport being the best option). For the transition period (September 13th-26th) guests can show either their vaccination card OR the BC vaccine passport AND a piece of government ID. After September 27th, only the vaccine passport AND a government piece of ID will be accepted.
When entering a Magic Yachts vessel, guests can show the proof of vaccination with either the physical card (up until September 27th), a printed passport or the digital passport with QR code. When checking the digital and printed copy, MYC will be using the new BC Vaccine Card Verifier App. This App will scan individual QR codes and will only display the person’s name and vaccination status. No other personal information is revealed or gathered. Please note that even with the new passport, guests are required to show valid government issue ID.
Canadian guests from outside of BC must show proof of their provincially/territorially officially recognized vaccine record AND their valid government ID from the same province or territory
International visitors must show the proof of vaccination that they used to enter Canada (for example, ArriveCAN) AND their passport.
FURTHER SAFETY PROTOCOLS ABOARD OUR VESSELS
- IMPORTANT: Masks must be worn onboard when indoors, except when you are seated at your table. Guests should stay seated inside unless you need to use the washroom, get food or drink from a counter/bar, or entering/exiting from the outside. It is fine to be without a mask on the decks or exterior spaces of our vessels.
- Aboard our vessels, all of our guests are comfortably seated at a table with a maximum of 6 guests and all tables are spread 6 feet apart.
- All of the washrooms aboard the vessels are equipped with hot running water along with antibacterial soap.
- In addition to the washrooms we also have sanitizing stations in place.
- We have equipped our bars with plexiglass screens.
- In order to preview the boats and start the planning process for your next event without visiting the vessels, our website is fully equipped with videos, photos and our sales manager can walk you through all of the details of your event. Our digital tours of the yachts will really allow you to get an idea of how your event will look.
We greatly appreciate your cooperation in helping us make your time aboard our yachts safe for everyone!
