Covid-19 Information and Policies

Operating Hours and Closures 2022 – re-assessing as information is updated.

NOTE: We are currently requesting guests to have with them, properly fitting face masks while on our premises. Wearing masks is your personal preference and please don’t hesitate to ask us to put ours on. We will happily do so. Our entire staff are fully vaccinated as of winter 2021/22.

Halfmoon Sea Kayaks will open full time for the 2022 season in mid May.

Online reservations will be encouraged in order to minimize contact during your visit. Payment and waivers can be completed during the online booking process with links through our automated confirmation emails. We are taking every precaution with our crew to keep all of our guests and ourselves as safe from exposure as possible.

Social distancing and sanitizing are the main focuses of our adapted service procedures.

Provincial Parks

BC Parks Response to Covid-19 Website

Guided multi day tours for 2022 will require proof of vaccination to mitigate any risk involved with the inability to maintain social distance that may be necessary in an unforeseen emergency.

Paddler’s Challenge 2022 – July and August 

We will delay our decision to run the Paddler’s Challenge until all provincial restrictions have been lifted.

Our decisions are made entirely for the safety of our crew and their vulnerable family members. It is safest to keep things as simple as possible. Although the activity of kayaking itself is safe enough in these circumstances, our new procedures for disinfecting our rental gear has made management of our equipment more complex. We are continuing to streamline our business procedures in regards to Covid-19 policies. We feel that this will be best accomplished by focusing on our primary services until we feel comfortable in expanding back to full operations.

Until then, please do not hesitate to call us for local paddling information or inquire about rentals, lessons, and tours. Have a great 2022 everyone and hope to see you at our beach!
