Residents of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Connecticut, New York & New Jersey are still exempt from testing requirements.
Under Stage 3 of reopening in the State of Maine, we will be allowed to begin accepting guests aboard as of July 1st.
The crew is busy readying our schooners for sailing. We have always emphasized cleanliness and sanitary conditions on our cruises. As we begin sailing this year we will be instilling even more stringent efforts. Each schooner will be thoroughly sanitized between cruises and there will be increased diligence while Guests are aboard. This will include, reduced passenger counts to allow greater distance between guests, sanitizing of all surfaces multiple times daily and extra precautions around food preparation and service. We will of course comply with or exceed all state guidelines for safely reopening. We are committed to sailing safely during our 2020 season.
Passengers over the age of 18 traveling from out of state will be required to either arrive with a negative Covid-19 test obtained no greater than 72 hours before arriving in Maine or quarantine for 14 days after arriving in Maine. You will also be required to fill out and sign a Certificate of Compliance for Maine Visitors prior to boarding. This form will be sent to you with your final confirmation.
Residents of Maine, New Hampshire, Vermont, Connecticut, New York & New Jersey are exempt from this requirement.
Due to diligence, and our rural population, Maine has had limited impact from COVID-19 compared to other states. As we welcome our summer visitors we want to share all that is wonderful about Maine with you. We will do all in our power to ensure the safety and wellness of our crew and passengers while on board our schooners. No matter where you are arriving from, we ask that prior to your cruise and while you are here, you protect yourselves and others by following all state and local guidelines for the prevention and spread of the virus.
While these may seem like extreme measures, these are extreme times. We are hoping for the loosening of restrictions as we move forward with reopening without a resurgence of viral transmission.
