Limited crew change options available

19 May 2020 / Mexico

Although most of Mexico’s ports are not allowing crew changes, they are possible on the Pacific Coast.

At Salina Cruz, crew changes are still permitted. However, it should be noted that almost all hotels in Santa Cruz are closed as per authorities’ instructions, and those that are still open are not providing meal services until further notice, in accordance with Health Authority regulations. Off-signers should disembark and be driven directly to the airport, and joiners will be transported directly from the airport to the vessel. If the vessel is to remain at the anchorage area, a launch boat for this movement can be arranged.

Off-signing of crew only is allowed at Guaymas, with no joiners permitted.
