At www.sunsetbosphorus.com we pride ourselves on our brand values; being fun, passionate, welcoming and expert.
And whilst these values have not changed, after conducting risk assessments across all areas of our business, we have introduced a number of health and safety measures to ensure that we can continue to over our guests a diferent view of The Bosphorus in Istanbul.
In line with Government advice, and working alongside local legislative bodies, we have reduced the risk of contact with COVID-19 across all of our locations, yachts and boats.
This guide will answer your questions about how to prepare in advance for your cruise, what social distancing measures are in place and what cleaning and hygiene procedures we have implemented.
If possible, please pre-book your tickets online for all cruises.
Currently, Government advice does not require you to wear a face mask for travel on our boats. We ask you to check our website just before your travel date where we will publish any changes to this policy.
The capacity for all of our cruises has been reduced significantly, so that we can ensure social distancing measures are maintained on arrival, on board,and as you disembark.
Whether travelling by public transport or your own vehicle and parking in a car park, we ask that you adhere to all social distancing advice before you arrive at our departure points.
We request that any ticket or refreshment transactions made on the day are made using contactless if possible please.
Please follow the rules of social distancing: stay at least 1,5 meters away from other passengers on our boats. We have reduced the capacity of our tours in order to have enough space for everyone.
The seating on board our sightseeing vessels has been clearly marked to indicate which seats our guests can sit on, to ensure that a social distance is maintained at all times.
We will be conducting frequent disinfection of all touch points including hand rails, door handles, tables and seating.
We have installed hand sanitiser dispensers at the entrance to all of our vessels for our passengers to use as they board and disembark.
We kindly ask all of our passengers to adhere to Government advice regarding personal hygiene whilst on board, including washing their hands regularly with soap and water, for at least 20 seconds.
All employees are issued with PPE, which may include face masks, face shields, disposable gloves, and hand sanitiser, in order to protect them and our guests.
Please make sure that you are fit to travel before you leave your home. If you display any symptoms of COVID-19 then we will not be able to let you board one of our vessels. You can contact us to discuss options for rescheduling your booking.
We hope that after reading this guide you have confidence in our health and safety measures, and feel safe in the knowledge that we have done everything that we can to minimise risk for our passengers and employees.
We do of course request that each of our employees and passengers also take personal responsibility for their safety, and the safety of those around them.
We look forward to welcoming you aboard our fleet, and showing you a different view of The Bosphorus.
Thank you, and stay safe.
