To our Capt. Dave’s Family and Friends,
We consider you part of our family and your safety remains our highest priority. We wanted to reach out and share a few of the steps we are taking for you, our customer.
We are in the business of serving people and in the midst of this coronavirus outbreak it’s important that we give you as much flexibility as possible when planning and enjoying your upcoming Dolphin and Whale Watching Safari.
To that end, here is what we have been doing as part our regular procedures to ensure your health and wellness:
Before and in-between trips, vessels’ surface areas and all rails are thoroughly wiped with cleaning products approved by the CDC.
Our Dolphin Deck check-in area and tables, counters, and rails are completely cleaned as well.
Our public whale watching cruises are resuming with reduced passenger capacity to give our already spacious vessels even more room for each guest.
For your safety as well as that of our team, each guest must wear a face covering during the meet and boarding portion of your experience, and while onboard the boat inside the harbor.
When the boat is out in the open ocean we recommend wearing face coverings but do not require it.
Our Captains and crew members will be wearing face coverings and gloves and maintaining a safe distance of six feet.
Visitors and residents should follow the same common-sense precautions – frequent hand washing, avoidance of sick people, etc. – that they would with the traditional flu. Older adults and people with chronic health conditions or compromised immune systems should follow detailed CDPH recommendations to protect themselves.
Your safety and well-being is our top priority, and we encourage you to take all necessary precautions to stay safe and visit once the time is right.
As you plan your trip to California please keep in mind the current guidelines and restrictions and note that California will gradually begin opening following specific standards met to keep you and our communities safe.
As so, we suggest staying up to date with the latest information so you can make an informed decision regarding your future trip. To get the latest information please visit https://covid19.ca.gov/.
We look forward to welcoming you to the Golden State when the time is right.
Being on the ocean, exposed to Vitamin D and negative ions is the one of the better immune-building activities you can engage in. Research supports that exposure to negative ions can promote antimicrobial activity, can have an activating influence on some body systems and cognitive performance, and can reduce symptoms of depression for some people. Escape the stress and give your mental health a boost while viewing our beautiful dolphins, whales and gorgeous ocean. It really does help put things in their proper perspective.
We’re so proud of our Capt. Dave’s team and all that they do to deliver amazing experiences. Trust that they will continue to serve you in health-sustaining ways over the next few weeks as we weather this together.
If you have read this far, thank you! We’d like to share some exciting news with you that is also very encouraging. We have purchased a new vessel! A new zodiac-style boat similar to Fast Cat, only bigger (up to 27 passengers) and faster! We think you will LOVE it, we already do! The name of this vessel is AllSwell… or as I like to call it…’Alls Well’… it reminds me of one of my favorite songs written by Horatio Spafford, “It is Well with My Soul” after he lost his children in a tragic accident, yet his faith in God remained strong. As we walk through difficult times it can be a really wonderful opportunity to press into our faith and ask for grace, God’s Divine help in our time of need.
