What Is 5 Star Marine Doing To Make Private Boat Hires Safe Post Covid19?

We are very aware of how the Covid19 pandemic has affected us locally here in Phuket but also all of our international friends and customers.  Being parents of a 7 year old boy we are as equally concerned as any other parent about ensuring every activity we undertake is safe, clean and the right healthy choice.

With this in mind, during this slow down in tourism we as a company have taken a number of steps to make sure we provide a clean and virus free environment for all of our customers.

Boat Renovations and Deep Cleaning

We were one of the first companies in Phuket to pull our boats out of the water and book them in with the island’s best renovation team.  During the renovation of both of our VIP Private Speedboats we had a deep cleaning undertaken.

All paint was sanded back to its original layer, new paint was applied, all surfaces were disinfected and cleaned.  This disinfection and cleaning happens on a weekly basis while the boat sits idle at our parking.

Equipment Disinfection

All of the equipment that we use on board inclusive of life jackets, fins, ice boxes, ropes and more were all disinfected, cleaned and sealed in storage containers.  When we resume regular tours we will complete the disinfection process again prior to our first travelers joining us.

Single Use Masks / Snorkels

If you follow us regularly on Facebook you will notice that we have opted to change our process of providing masks and snorkels to customers.  Instead of providing them we will offer a “Covid Kit” to our customers that includes a full face mask and snorkel which you can take home at the end of the tour.

Our Covid Kit will include a number of other items to ensure cleanliness and safety from the virus while onboard and visiting the islands.  Just contact us to ask what the kit includes.

Quarantine Of Staff

All of our Guide Team, Captain Team, Crew Team and Admin Team undertook a 28 day Quarantine to ensure as the virus spread they were not in contact with anyone that was at risk of having the virus.

Additionally our staff are all required to wear masks, carry hand sanitizer and complete Airborne Pathogen Training so they know how to limit the risk of spreading a virus like Covid19.

Accreditation

The Thai Government is offering an accreditation program that allows businesses like ours to develop a set of guidelines for our employees, suppliers and customers to follow to ensure safe use of our private boats.

We are one of the first 1442 tourism businesses in all of Thailand to adopt this accreditation program.  We believe from our research we may be one of the only 2 Private Speedboat Tour companies in Phuket to adopt this accreditation process.

Additionally we have mandated our staff to undertake Airborne Pathogen accreditation and training as well.
