*UPDATED SEPTEMBER 8, 2021
Please contact Kate at firstname.lastname@example.org if you are signed up for a trip and have any questions. We request that participants have some type of face covering since there are areas on the boat where it will be difficult to maintain the social distance guideline of 6′. A light scarf or sun screen neck wrap would both work if you do not have a mask.
*The above no longer applies to those who have been vaccinated, but new CDC guidelines recommend that even those who are vaccinated use a mask or face covering when inside. Our cabin is well ventilated when there is enough wind and when both doors are open. We ask that our participants be mindful of others and use a face covering in the cabin and at any other time they feel necessary. Please note that it is also very warm offshore, so be sure to be aware of this when choosing a face covering and remember to take breaks, uncovering your nose and mouth, when necessary to not become overheated.
Many clients who were booked for trips in 2020 that we canceled have left their deposits on account for a future departure. We appreciate that because they have helped to ensure that we are now gearing up to offer trips in 2021. North Carolina has updated their COVID-19 protocols increasing capacity for the number of people in certain spaces. Since we have both indoor and outdoor spaces on the boat, we have upped our participant limit to 20 (the pre-COVID maximum). This is still well below the number allowed aboard per our USCG certification. Participants must be vigilant about maintaining their distance, we understand that everyone has a different situation and that those who are vaccinated can follow CDC recommendations about what they should and should not do. Currently vaccinated persons are not required to wear masks. We ask everyone to be courteous while aboard our vessel.
