COVID-19 VIRUS: CURRENT SITUATION September 30, 2020

No change except that it remains unlikely that international yacht arrivals will be allowed until November 1.

Bio security restrictions remain in place but national and international tourism is now 'open for business' in Cartagena. Unfortunately not applicable to international yacht (motor and sail) arrivals as yet.

International flights from the USA started arriving direct to Cartagena on September 19. Beaches under control of the municipality remain closed until October 1 when several beaches (particularly in the Bocagrande area) will re-open with strict bio security measures in place.

Many local tour boat operators have begun day tour operations. Passengers and crew can only disembark from the same approved marina or public dock they left from. Permission to sail is usually granted departing from authorized marinas and docks. Boats should return the same day by 17.00 or 18.00 (if vessel is over 25 mtrs. LOA).  Diving and fishing trips are permitted, but bathing, going ashore, or transferring to other boats is not. We expect further relaxation of these measures soon.

 

Bio security measures (face mask wearing, social distancing, antibacterial stations, disinfecting  boats pre and post tours etc) will remain in place for the foreseeable future.  We would expect all those using the marina facilities to be fully compliant with these measures. Akin to traffic rules that most respect for the same life saving reasons.

We are hopeful that international cruisers may be permitted to arrive in October so keep your eyes on this space!!

This remains in force:

NO YACHTS (RECREATIONAL SAILBOATS MOTOR BOATS ETC) WILL BE ALLOWED TO ENTER THE PORT OF CARTAGENA. ONE EXCEPTION: YACHTS CREWED BY COLOMBIAN RESIDENTS OR NATIONALS THAT HAVE PROVIDED ADVANCE ARRIVAL NOTICE (and approval). And Force Majeure.

Those interested in arriving must first talk to a maritime agent. See Cruising Guide (menu) for options.
