We are so excited to be back out on the water with you!  Our guests’ safety and well-being has always been our number one priority and the last few months have only increased our commitment to providing safe, outstanding experiences among the 30,000 Islands.  Our dedicated team has been monitoring guidance from health authorities regarding measures we can follow to ensure we all remain healthy.  In response to the current COVID-19 pandemic, we have adopted many new safety measures which are detailed below. Our Islander ferry service to Henry’s Fish Restaurant and Huckleberry Island is operating daily and the Island Queen Cruise tours will begin on Friday July 17, 2020.

Crew Member Health: A health check for COVID-19 symptoms will be conducted for each employee at the start of each of their shifts.

Physical Distancing: Best practices in physical distancing have been implemented including the use of floor markers and directional arrows, the installation of plexiglass at service counters, the provision of ample staging for loading and unloading, the use of contactless online ticketing and reduced guest capacity on vessels.  In addition, seating has been reconfigured on the Island Queen to ensure ample distance between passengers and maximum fresh air flow through the vessel.

Increased Focus on Sanitization: The 30,000 Island Cruise Line has an excellent safety and cleanliness track record. For almost 50 years, the cleaning and disinfecting of our ships’ surfaces has been a top priority before, during and after our boat tours.  In addition to our standard sanitizing measures, we will not only be elevating the awareness and education of our crew members, but we will also be increasing the frequency and focus of our cleaning procedures to ensure high touch areas are sanitized regularly and thoroughly. In addition, we have cancelled all morning tours aboard the Island Queen this year to ensure that crew members have the time they need to properly clean and disinfect the ship each day.

The 30,000 Island Cruise Lines reserves the right to modify its safety measures at any point without prior notice.
