Capt Andy's Updates
COVID 19 has been a learning experience for all of us. Here at Captain Andy’s we’ve taken strong measures to ensure the safety of our crew, passengers and community. Health checks are required for every employee before they start their day and immunization while not required, has been strongly encouraged and widely adopted. Specific procedures have been put in place to maintain consistency with the CDC guidelines.
Out of an abundance of caution, we have been closed from March 2020 until April 2021. We are so excited to join you and your families on a safe sailing adventure without sacrificing the fun and excitement we’ve been known for!
