        The Government of The Bahamas has announced a number of additional precautionary steps intended to prevent the spread of COVID-19 to its islands. The Association of Bahamas Marinas is providing the following information for clarification and to assist in accessing the country for pleasure boating and cruising.

        Q: Will travel between the various islands be possible?
        A: At 7:00 p.m. on Tuesday (7/28) inter-island travel will be discontinued. Between now and then, anyone arriving at an Out Island from New Providence (Nassau) and other islands where COVID-19 is present, will be required to quarantine for 14 days upon arrival. For this reason, you are advised to be guided by lists of affected islands posted by the Ministry of Health at https://covid19.gov.bs/

        Boaters who enter after 7:00pm Tuesday, the port of entry is where you stay. If you are already here, stay in place. If you are planning on sailing home, get fuel, water, food full by Tuesday night, then head out via the shortest safest route.
        The emergency regulations require anyone travelling from a Bahamian island for which there is an impending lockdown order to “undergo, at their own expense, a 14-day quarantine in a government facility upon arriving at their destination island within The Bahamas, to be followed by an RT PCR COVID-19 molecular test at the end of the quarantine period.” For this reason yacht captains a boaters are strongly advised to stay abreast of developments at https://covid19.gov.bs/.

        Q: Are customs open this weekend for arrivals and departures?
        A: Yes.

        Q: Can boats travel to the islands during lockdown weekends, including this weekend until Monday July 27 at 5:00 am.
        A: Boats can travel from island to island if they do not get off vessel at destination until Tuesday July 28 at 7:00pm.

        Q: Can boaters use their tenders or go out sailing this weekend / during lockdowns?
        A: Yes. The lockdown does not affect movement on the water.

        Q: What about movement of people?
        A: In these circumstances, its best to plan to enjoy cruising The Bahamas without much, if any time ashore. On Monday 27 July a country-wide curfew between 7:00pm and 5:00am will be in effect. It would be best to spend those hours aboard your vessel. However, under no circumstances may leave their marina premises after 7:00pm. On the hotel’s or marina’s premises masks must be worn.

        Q: What is situation with charter flights? Can people fly out this weekend? Going forward will people flying in on private have to quarantine?
        A: Newly imposed regulations requiring passengers on commercial flights to undergo 14 days of quarantine do not apply to passengers on private yachts and flights. Such passengers, including those on charters by air or sea are required to have evidence of a negative RT PCR COVID-19 molecular test dated no longer than seven days before arrival.

        Q: Will it be possible to dine out?
        A: As of Monday (7/27) all restaurants will be closed for on-site dining, but take-away and delivery will still be allowed (check with individual restaurants).

        Q: Will we be able to get provisions?
        A: Between the hours of 5:00am and 7:00pm marinas will be able to arrange for provisions to be brought to dockside from local supply sources. Each marina will be able to provide lists and contact information.
