There are a few precautions for customers due to the COVID-19 outbreak. All guests must wear a face covering while at the docks and while on board the vessel, even while outside. Nobody will be allowed on board without a face covering. Wendella is asking people to check their temperatures before leaving home. If a customer cannot make the tour due to illness, Wendella will reschedule or cancel the tour.
Vessel bars will not be open at this time. You may bring your own non-alcoholic beverages if you wish.MORE NEWS: 16-Year-Old Girl Killed In Hit-And-Run Crash In Hermosa
Hand sanitizer stations are installed on all vessels and at all facilities, and restrooms are cleaned and disinfected before and after each departure. Frequently contacted surfaces are disinfected regularly.
