Covid 19

At Sundarban Houseboat, our guest’s and crew’s safety and well-being have always been the top priority for us. The COVID-19 pandemic has taken the world by surprise and everyone has gone through some very difficult months. We are very happy that we can offer our trips again with many additional safety measures. Because after the past few months, in which we have lived with so many limitations, there is nothing better than going outside again, amidst nature’s best and feel the freedom from the isolated lockdown with a good company and a trustworthy host.

We are currently laser-focused on additional safety enhancements for our return to the service. To develop our future boarding screening process and updated health protocols, we are collaborating with government health authorities to ensure that best protocols are followed. Please note that every decision that we make and all of the fine-tuning we do has your well-being in our minds. We Miss You..! and can’t wait to welcome you back on- board.



We intend to ensure that your concerns about hygiene and safety are well taken care of at all times. In lieu of this we have the following measures in place:



Before taking the trip to Sundarban, we’ll send out emails to our guests to remind them of the face mask policy and necessary health protocols documents that they will be required to bring along. We will keep a small stock of face masks, sanitizers, and medicines for an emergency. During the course of the tour, the rules regarding social distancing and hygiene will be observed.

Before boarding, all the guests have to participate in mandatory screenings and some of the guests may be subjected to a secondary review. Dependent upon screening results, some guests may be denied boarding to ensure that we keep our houseboat healthy, hygienic, and safe.
