All guests must agree to the following requirements:

  • Complete a questionnaire that asks whether you have any COVID-19 symptoms; have been outside of the Atlantic Provinces; or to any known exposure sites; been refused boarding an aircraft due to a medical reason relating to COVID-19, have not been mandated to quarantine order.

  • Must wear clean, properly fitting 2-layer masks that cover the mouth and nose at all times, both indoors and during flights.

  • Walk at a distance of 2 meters from one another when outdoors.

Passengers will be denied boarding the plane / helicopter / ship if they

  • Exhibit any related COVID-19 symptoms.

  • Answer the questionnaire in the negative.

  • Refuse to wear a mask.

When deciding to book a trip to Sable Island this year

 

International travelers:

Presently, the international borders to Canada remain closed to non-essential travel and there are no immediate signs of reopening. International travelers are not permitted to enter the country for travel that is not deemed essential and strict fines are in place for those who do not follow this practice. 

It is our hope that the borders become safe to re-open by mid-August this year so we may welcome visitors from across the globe. If you plan on visiting from outside of Canada, we strongly request that you choose a date that is in the latter part of the season (September & October) to avoid disappointment or a mandatory requirement of 14-day period of self-isolation. You may also be required to be vaccinated in advance and to provide proof of a negative Covid-19 test upon arrival.

If you book when an anticipated reduction of restrictions does not occur, we will contact you. In such case we reserve the right to cancel your booking and to refund your deposit (fully) at 60 days prior to your tour date.

Travelers from outside of Atlantic Canada

Everyone who travels from outside Atlantic Canada (including if you’re travelling through Nova Scotia to another destination) needs to apply to travel to Nova Scotia by completing the Safe Check-in Form, including most travelers who are exempt from self-isolation. They may need to self-isolate when they arrive in Nova Scotia for up to 14 days. If they have already self-isolated in Atlantic Canada, they may enter Nova Scotia without self-isolating again. You don’t need to self-isolate if you’re exempt from self-isolation. Source:  https://novascotia.ca/coronavirus/travel/
