We’re Fully Operational

Outsider Charters Inc. is fully operational and taking bookings for the current season, from June through October 2020.  We’ve also changed our deposit policy so you don’t have to be worried about trip cancellations due to COVID-19.  Give us a call (1.250.800.0701) for details — we’re happy to get you whatever information you need and address any concerns you may have.

Client and Community Safety

The health and safety of our clients and community is our top priority.  The onset of COVID-19 has created an unconventional environment, one that’s required all of us to make life adjustments.  As we come through Phase 2 of BC’s Restart Plan and move towards Phase 3, we’ve evaluated what we need to do to make sure our guests fully enjoy a Vancouver Island salmon fishing trip or an eco adventure tour, and stay safe at the same time.

WorksafeBC has reviewed the Sport Fishing Institute of BC’s recommendations for charter, guide and lodge operations.  These recommendations may change as we receive additional guidance from the BC Provincial Health Officer, but they are suitable now for business operation locally.  Thanks to SFIBC’s efforts, we have a framework that will allow us to get back to the business of providing our guests with one of the most unique and memorable experiences available.

Health & Safety Protocol

We’ve created a Health & Safety Protocol specific to our operations and in line with the orders and guidance set out by the BC Provincial Health Officer as well as the guidelines of the SFIBC.  Our protocols are designed to minimize the risk of COVID-19 transmission and ensure the safest possible environment for our clients.  We will change these protocols as we receive more information and guidance from the Provincial Health Officer.

Our full Health & Safety Protocol is available here.  It sets out practices and behaviours related to physical distancing, personal protective equipment, personal hygiene, environmental sanitation and hygiene, and also discusses the kinds of communications necessary to ensure that COVID-19 transmission risk remains minimal.

We want our clients to know that we’re being vigilant.  We’re paying attention to the needs of the communities that we belong to, and we’re paying attention to your individual needs.  If you have any specific concerns, we’re happy to address those and resolve any potential issues.  Don’t hesitate to get in touch.  Above all, we’re looking forward to hosting you on the water.
