Ocean Activities Summer 2020

We will be offering our normal quota of activities: dinghy sailing, windsurfing, bikes, paddlesports and kids' clubs. A benefit of our beach activities is that they take place outside, and they are led by conscientious Ocean Elements instructors who will reduce group sizes and practice safe distancing. 

Based on the guidance we have received, we are confident that our operation continues to be safe and ready to serve our guests. We look forward to welcoming you on another unforgettable Ocean Elements holiday.

Watersports Lessons

We will be providing our normal offering of group lessons in the form of RYA courses for dinghy and windsurfing: beginner and intermediate. Our ratios will be a strict 1:6 for singlehanded sailing and windsurfing. 

For shore based instructional sessions, we will maintain social distancing and all staff/pupils will be required to wear PPE. 

Bikes

All bikes  will be washed/disinfected between users. All touch points at the rental station will be continually sanitised and anti-bac dispensers available to all to use. At busy times, there may be a short delay in turning the kit around. There will not be any change in terms of restrictions to our biking programme. All bikes will need to be returned to the rental station at the end of each day. Guided rides will run to 3 a week if we have enough participants.

Paddle boards & Kayaks

All paddle equipment will be hosed/disinfected as applicable between users. All touch points at the rental station will be continually sanitised through the day with anti bac dispensers available to all to use. At busy times, there may be a short delay in turning the kit around.

We will be operating to ratios of 1:6 for kids and their activities and where possible have activities to try to maintain social distancing. The majority of activities will be conducted at the Centre to aid social distancing for the main hotel guests when in our care.

Ocean Elements Kids’ club will run with a minimum of 3 children (and a max of 6); otherwise the centre’s own kids’ club is a great offering that parents can drop kids off at. Please pre book your kids club 2 weeks before departure to guarantee a slot.

  • Visual or physical aids will be sanitised before and after use.
  • Each child will have their own arts & crafts, toys or sports kit to use exclusively during club

Centre-run Activities - Akti Beach/Palace, Kos

The hotels spread over large areas. Outdoor pools and the hotels’ private beach areas are easily accessible by our guests allowing them plenty of space to enjoy their holiday all while being safe and social distancing. Our outdoor facilities (restaurants, beach, pools, bars, etc.) will be operational, and special hygiene measures will be applied. Sunbeds and umbrellas will be placed adhering to all safe distancing requirements. Spas and Fitness Rooms will be operational, but will have very strict hygiene measures in place. However, our indoor heated pools at the Akti Imperial and at the Akti Palace Kos, will remain closed. 

No group activities will operate in the pool, but all swimming pools will be open, sun beds, tennis courts, volcanic spa, gym, yoga sessions (as per local timetable), evening entertainments. The only restrictions will be to the organised  team activities like basketball / football games.

PPE & safety

Our guests are expected to provide their own PPE for the week, and to take responsibility for its correct use. For customers' own peace of mind, we advise that you bring portable hand sanitiser, and several changes of mask. At least one mask change per activity session. We will not insist on gloves, but leave that to your discretion.

Some activities may require ‘closer contact’ or a partner (like a double handed boat), and these can often be organised so that you are teamed up with members from your own ‘Booking Bubble’. 

In a safety or rescue situation, (on the water), our staff will practice social distancing where humanly possible and will wear PPE where the environment allows.

Taking Responsibility

We expect all our guests to practice safe distancing and make their own judgement as to whether they are comfortable with certain activities and situations, before taking part. 

Although we will monitor distancing rules it is your responsibility to ensure that you adhere and take all precautions to remain safe. You must understand the risks involved and that accidental contact / infringement of the distancing rules can happen at any time, even with the best of intent.

The content of this plan is intended as a guide and will be implemented where possible. There may be further changes to align with changing local standards and laws.
