Opening Sailing Season - Late July
Consequently, if a treatment is developed before June 30th, we will implement the start of our season on July 15th. If the treatment is not developed until July 15th the start date is moved back to August 1st. Finally, if there is no treatment finalized before July 15th, the season is a No Go and we will open up the booking schedule for the 2021 season. If that is the case, all sailing cruises and walking tours scheduled for July 15th – October 12, 2020 will be re-scheduled or a voucher will be issued.
Our New Normal
Should we execute our start date, here is how our new normal will appear. As an alternative to our normal four cruises per day, we will only have two cruises each day to allow time, in between cruises, to properly sanitize the boat. We will only provide two types of cruises, the Private Cruise and the Themed Private Cruise. These cruises will only be available to be booked by couples or families who reside in the same household and the maximum number of passengers can only be 4 persons. Passengers will verify that they are in the same household on the registration form. In order to practice social distancing, with the limited amount of cockpit space on the boat, we will encourage the use of the deck as well. All crew and passengers will wear a mask. If you do not have a mask we will provide a mask from you.
Our Safety Approach
The boat will be sprayed inside and out with a bay friendly CDC approved disinfectant and the head, cockpit and seating area will be sanitized before and after each outing. Hand sanitizers will be on board for use by the passengers and crew. We will require the crew and all passengers to wear a mask. There will be a clause added to our waivers that will address the issue of sailing at your our risk during this pandemic.
On the walking tours, we will sanitize all of the radio equipment after each tour. We will practice social distancing on the walking tours and our tour guides will wear masks. If you do not have a mask we will provide a mask from you. We are not responsible for the operating hours of the museums that are on the walking tours.
At Chesapeake Windsail Cruises Corporation our passengers, tour guides, and crew’s safety will always come first.
