Covid-19  Safety

Our Guests are important. As always, our boats are cleaned and sanitized after every rental.  Our rentals are private. This means that only your group will be on a boat during the rental.  According to the CDC, masks are not required for those who are vaccinated.  We encourage you to do what you feel is best for your group.


We will never ask about your medical history.  All are welcome with or without vaccinations as we are outdoors.

Our picnic area is provided for our guests as they wait to board their boat.  We do not require masks in that waiting area or when checking in at the trailer, or while cruising on boats.  If you are not comfortable being around others, we do not recommend booking. We want all of our guests to enjoy their experience. Mask shaming is not tolerated.

Please do not arrive with more than 6 or 10 people (depending on boat size)  in total as we are unable to refund. If more than the allowed people arrive, we cannot let the group out.  

Before booking, please read some of the frequently asked questions here.

This will ensure you and your guests have the best experience.
