Mask wearing and proper social distancing is recommended and encouraged during while indoors, during guided tours and whenever encountering other people throughout the fort.
Enhanced Cleaning Procedures:
Cleaning will be ongoing as close to after use as possible. A deep clean of the vessel will occur upon arrival at the fort where all guests will be required to disembark for this purpose.
Onboard Pedestrian Traffic Patterns:
Onboard pedestrian traffic will be predetermined with arrows on the floor/deck indicating that the port side aisle is for aft forward traffic and the aisle on the starboard side is for bow aft traffic. This will help preclude people walking in a counter direction.
All waiting areas at the snack bar, showers, and heads, will indicate a safe social distance that will be enforced by the crew.
Additional Protocol at Fort Jefferson
Proper social distancing will be required throughout the fort. Paper copies of the NPS self-guided tour will be made available for distribution.
Snorkeling Gear: Per CDC guidelines all our snorkels, masks, fins, and vests are dipped into a solution of water and Buckeye International SaniQ, washed with fresh water, and then hung on the rail to dry. Before departure each day we spray all mouthpieces and vest with the same solution and let them sit overnight.
