Hawaii Coronavirus Updates and Protocols

**Updated May 5, 2022**

We are aware of the additional CDC focus on larger cruise lines and variants and we continue to take a safe and practical approach to every step of our small vessel experience. We’ve successfully operated in Alaska, the Pacific Northwest and Hawaii during COVID and recent experience has proven a recipe for limited transmission with variants thus farWe require full vaccination to board, including a booster for all of those who are eligible. 

Small vessel cruising provides an outlet for adventure in the outdoors with extended opportunities to be in fresh air in remote locations, with plenty of room to socially distance. As air travel continues so will the opportunity to join our highly experiential voyages, focused on nature, fresh air, in the outdoors. We don’t operate in ports and remain in remote locations throughout the duration of our sailings. Smaller groups, more control, and a high level of safety protocols provide more confidence for our guests. 

*Starting Feb 4, 2022, boosters are required for those who are eligible.

Each guest regardless of age must provide documentation that they are fully vaccinated in order to embark the vessel. This information must be uploaded via the Guest Portal no less than 30 days prior to departure.

Lastly, all crew and guests are encouraged but not required to wear masks while on board in public spaces.
