Dear community,

COVID-19 Testing Now Available Onboard Nautilus

Guests flying back to the US from Mexico are now required to have a negative test for COVID-19. To ensure this doesn’t impact your trip, we are working with the local hospital to provide testing on the boat prior to disembarking, or at the airport for people leaving San Ignacio. We will cover the costs of this test, and results will be available within two hours, ensuring no delays in you getting home. You can find more information about the testing process below.

If you require a PCR test instead of the antigen test, we will cover the cost up to the amount of the antigen test and are happy to book everything for you. Your safety comes paramount and we have strict COVID-19 precautions in place to ensure you can travel safely, and happily. You can view our precautions here.

We look forward to welcoming you soon!

COVID-19 Testing Process

Guests embarking on a liveaboard will need to be at SeeCreatures by 4pm on the day of boarding for their liveaboard trip, or 4pm the day before for guests heading to San Ignacio. Medical staff from the hospital will be at SeeCreatures at 4pm to carry out the testing, therefore it is important you arrive on time as it will take a bit of time to keep everyone socially distanced, conduct the testing and ensure you get lab results back within two hours. This complimentary testing is mandatory before boarding our ships or chartered airplane.

Stay Safe!

Thank you very much for posting this information but I wonder if given the very short time frame if there is any contingency in place for the possibility of a false positive result?
