Health and Safety Measures

We have always maintained high standards with our sanitation practices, and are taking additional measures to ensure the safety of everyone on our tours.

  • All boats and all equipment are thoroughly sanitized before and after the tour.
  • Snorkels and safety jackets are also thoroughly sanitized but if you feel uncomfortable using our gear, please feel free to bring your own.
    • We also offer the option to purchase just the snorkel mouthpiece or the full snorkel.
  • We take the temperature of every customer and crew member prior to the tour.
  • Customers are assigned seats on the boat. (seats are marked with blue tape to allow social distancing.)
  • Hand sanitizer will be available on the boat.
