What to Expect
You have applied for and accepted a position at Allen Marine Tours! We are quite busy all summer long so that means you are expected to work holidays & weekends. Schedules are published in advance; however, tour demand and cruise schedules occasionally change at the last minute. We ask our employees to be flexible as things can change!
We offer seasonal employees two days of paid time off per season. Those not working a full season will receive a prorated amount of leave based on their availability.
For many of our positions, we provide uniform tops, jackets & hats. We have other uniform options available for purchase such as vests, fleece jackets and beanies. You will be required to provide pants and footwear. We require black uniform pants in a Dockers or Dickies style. We also allow black Carhartt pants. No leggings, work out pants, etc. Should you desire, you can also include a pair of black rain pants in your uniform repertoire. Footwear should be close-toed and non-skid. Many mariners wear Xtratuf’s. There are many style options, and they are tried and true on fishing, tour, and ferry boats.
Clothing To Pack:
Weather in the rainforest can change at the drop of a hat – from 70 and sunny to 50 and rain in the space of a few hours. We recommend bringing layers – polypro or wool base layers, a fleece or wool sweater, guide pants or fleece pants and rain gear are a good starting point. A good pair of waterproof walking or hiking shoes are useful, as there are many miles of trail and beach to explore!
