In all the chaos that 2020 has brought us, it is nice to hear a bit of good news! Slowly & safely, the Bahamas will be moving into the third phase of the ‘Tourism Readiness & Recovery Plan’ starting on October 15th. Major hotels & beaches will be allowed to re-open on all islands with excursions resuming operations on November 1st. Commercial flights between islands have resumed as well starting on September 9th.
What does that mean for Andros South? All guests at this time are still required to have an approved health visa through travel.gov.bs at least 72 hours ahead of their travel date. In addition, guests must present a negative COVID-19 RT-PCR test that must be taken no more than 5 days before your date of travel. You may travel through Nassau and overnight if necessary, however, we recommend traveling directly to Congo Town from Florida, to simplify the travel process. Once in the Bahamas, guests are required to “vacation in place”, remaining on the property for 14 days or the length of your stay, whichever is shorter. As always, remaining diligent to prevent the spread of COVID-19 is pertinent for our guests, staff & communities. Please remember to wear a mask, wash your hands frequently & social distance whenever possible.
These entry requirements and COVID-19 protocols are evolving regularly. Be sure to check with Bahamas Covid-19 Travel Update or reach out to us at Deneki Outdoors by emailing firstname.lastname@example.org or giving us a call at 1 (800) 344-3628 to get the most up to date information before your trip. We look forward to fishing with you on the flats of Andros!
