Update as of 18 June 2020
We are resuming our fishing trips in Phase 2 (19 June and onwards).
Please read the full 18 June advisory by Maritime Port Authority here. By coming onboard our trips, you hereby declare to Singapore Fishing Charter Pte Ltd that you agree to follow all the regulations set out in the MPA and attached MOH advisory, as well as measures laid out here. We seek your kind understanding. Covid 19 is still out there and we must be vigilant to stay safe and healthy.
As we have to run on a lower capacity (5 passengers excluding captain/crew), most existing bookings are affected:
- Private charter rates remain the same
- Maximum 5 guests
Individual pax bookings
- Pricing will have some adjustments
- Maximum 5 guests
We will contact you in the coming days. Thanks for your kind understanding. We will try our best to be accommodating, and apologise in advance for the amendments that have to be made.
When we resume we will abide with all prevailing measures. These include (but not limited to) the following:
(i) Temperature checks
Prior to boarding
If you are unwell or have any flu-like symptoms, please stay at home and do not risk your fellow passengers and crew
It is best to tell us in advance as far as possible if you are unwell, so that we can try to arrange a reschedule or refund
For the safety of all guests and crew, guests who are unwell or with any symptoms or above 37.5C (fever) will be denied boarding
SafeEntry scan will be required twice:
First at the marina entrance (required by RSYC and One Degree 15) AND prior to boarding (required for Singapore Fishing Charter Pte Ltd)
(iii) Safe distancing
All personnel onboard shall practise safe distancing by keeping at least one metre apart
Currently our existing fishing stations are spaced out 1 meter or more apart, and seats more than 1 meter apart are also marked out
All employees, customers and other onsite personnel MUST put on their masks properly at all times, except when eating and drinking
Please refer to MOH rules on types of masks allowed in Part B of their Covid 19 FAQ here. It says a that mask that closely and completely covers the nose and mouth (i.e. without leaving a gap between the mask and the face) must be worn. You can also refer to MOH Guidance For Use of Masks and Shields here.
(v) Cleanliness and sanitation
According to MPA and MOH, please wash your hands regularly. Disinfecting hand soap is provided onboard. Hand sanitiser will NOT be provided as it may contaminate the live well and kill the live bait
Our boats are thoroughly washed after every trip
Our live prawn bait supply comes from Malaysia. As of now we have live prawn bait available. If for any reason we are not able to get live prawns, we will provide fresh dead prawns from the market. To be safe, feel free to BYOB (bring your own bait).
Our waters are VERY heavily patrolled by MPA and Police Coast Guard. They will be enforcing the rules during this time. They can see us from very far using binoculars. So please be mindful. You might not notice them but they can definitely see you.
We will stop accepting cash payments so that we are able to keep safe distance. You can do a bank transfer or PayNow to our UEN.
By coming onboard our trips, you hereby declare to Singapore Fishing Charter Pte Ltd that you agree to follow all the regulations set out in the MPA and attached MOH advisory, as well as measures laid out here
As the situation may constantly evolve, please check back here from time to time, and especially before your trip.
Any questions, please whatsapp us.
We apologise for all the inconvenience. Let's get through this together!
Your SFC team
