Your well-being is our priority, so as we prepare to resume our activities, we adopt new measures based on the recommendations of the medical community, DGS and Turismo de Portugal

After implementing these recommendations, the “Clean and Safe” seal was issued by Turismo de Portugal, certifying that Southwest Charters is a company that practices and promotes:

  • Cleaning
  • Physical Distance
  • Reduced Contact

It may look a little different from the last time you visited us, but together we will find ways to create unique and unforgettable moments.

Resuming our activities

In the reopening of our Boat Rentals, Experiences and Training we improved and implemented measures to:

  • Cleaning and Disinfection

To our high standards of hygiene, we have added extra routines cleaning and disinfection, as well as identifying the places that require more attention, choosing the appropriate products and processes to implement.

  • Physical Distance

In order to comply with the recommendations of the health authorities, we have reduced the maximum capacity of passengers on all our vessels, thus ensuring greater social distance and security for all. We created specific signage easy to interpret and updated our good practices and safety on board.

  • Prevention

We will closely monitor the recommendations of the medical community and health authorities regarding prevention, screening and the use of personal protective equipment, including masks. The sanitization stations and the disinfectant gel and individual masks are already implemented and available.

  • Team

We have reinforced our culture of health and safety in the company and will continue to do so, focused on actively promoting the well-being of all. We attend safety courses on board and related to the new health procedures.
