Effective July 2: As a U.S. Coast Guard regulated vessel, we adhere to Executive Order 13988. This order has recently been updated to allow vaccinated individuals to go without masks when in outdoor spaces on vessels. Regardless of vaccination status, all guests and employees must continue to wear a mask indoors on our vessels (boarding vessels, ordering at the bar, using the restroom, etc.).

COVID-19 Safety Measures

The safety of our employees and guests continues to be our number one priority. Learn about the safety measures that we are implementing.

Guest Commitment

If you plan on cruising with us, we require all guests to observe the following guidelines:

  • Face masks will continue to be required, regardless of vaccination status, when indoors on our vessels, including when boarding the vessel, ordering drinks, and using the restroom
  • NEW! Face masks are not required for vaccinated individuals in any outdoor space on our vessels
  • NEW! Face masks are not required for vaccinated individuals on Blake Island and in any of the spaces on Blake Island, including the Tillicum Longhouse and the Longhouse Café
  • Wash your hands often and avoid touching your face
  • If you or anyone in your party is experiencing COVID-related symptoms, please find another time to visit us


Passenger capacities vary by boat size and comfortability. We continue to encourage social distancing whenever possible, and do not intend to open up to full capacity this season.

Trip Protection

Have peace of mind at the time of booking. If you need to rebook for any reason, we will issue a credit for the value of your cruise to book a later date and time with no fees. Credits are valid on all 2021 experiences and available for up to one year after the original cruise date.
