Coronavirus Policy – St Vincent and the Grenadines

Update on the COVID-19 situation in St Vincent and the Grenadines as of May 26th, 2020

Further to our previous advisory dated April 21st, 2020, we are updating you on the pandemic with regard to Horizon Yacht Charters in St Vincent. St Vincent currently has 4 active cases of Covid 19 and all our cases have had mild to moderate symptoms and we have had no fatalities linked to Covid. Our Government continues to work hard with contact tracing and testing and we can envisage being Covid free in the near future.

Whilst we are still open to visiting sailors, they must self-quarantine, in land-based accommodation at their own expense, for 14 nights.

There is currently no date set for the resumption of international flights, however, St Vincent it is likely that we will start to see a gradual reopening of the airport in the foreseeable future.   We will continue to post updates as we receive them.

For current charters booked:

  • If your charter falls within our 90 days cancellation period all monies paid are non-refundable and we will extend the period allowed for rescheduling for up to one year from your charter start date. The terms and conditions highlighted below will still apply (scroll down to see our March 18th policy statement)
  • If your charter is outside our 90 days cancellation period, you have the option to cancel your charter and receive a full refund, less our $200 administration fee
  • If you would like to make a new charter booking then we are just requesting the non-refundable $500 deposit at this time, so you can secure the yacht of your choice in anticipation of travel opening up again. The balance of the deposit will be due when world events unfold, and we know that we can travel and sail once again.

We sincerely hope that each and everyone one of you remains safe and well, and we will continue to update you on the COVID-19 latest regarding our company in St Vincent.  Thank you for your continued support, understanding, and patience as we work through these difficult times.
