COVID-19 measures & social distancing

Your health is our top priority, and we have put additional measures in place to keep all guests safe both during your time with us.

  • Cleaning– We have increased the frequency of cleaning high touch surfaces and high traffic areas before, during and after each cruise, and hand sanitiser will be available to all of our guests.
  • Social Distancing– Guests who are not members of the same household will be required to stay at a safe 1.5 metre distance throughout the cruise. The number of guests on each cruise will be limited in line with the current guidelines.
  • Wellness Checks– Our crew will receive daily wellness checks to ensure they are healthy and symptom-free. If you or anyone in your group is experiencing symptoms, we ask that you not travel and contact us so we can work with you directly to cancel or reschedule your cruise.

As a responsible tour operator, Cat Balou Cruises has taken a number of additional measures to keep our cruises as safe and as enjoyable as possible for our guests.

These measures are subject to change depending on Local, State and Federal requirements surrounding COVID-19. Any updates to COVID-19  restrictions can be found on this page.

Cat Balou Cruises latest safety measures are based on the latest COVID-19 infection rates in our region. At the current time these rates are low, and therefore participating in a whale watching cruise poses a low-risk. This may be subject to change.
