Kauai Sea Tours (KST) has implemented new COVID-19 safety protocols in our operations for the safety and wellbeing of our guests, staff and community. KST’s new policies adhere to the U.S. Coast Guards COVID-19 Safety requirements, and CDC requirements / recommendations.
Required Face Covering
The President issued Executive Order (13998) requires that masks be worn on all “public maritime vessels”. In addition the Centers of Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) issued an order that requires all persons travelling on all commercial vessels to wear a mask. ALL passengers and our staff are required to wear a face covering (face mask, bandana, face gaiter, etc.) during KST tours. Your mask or face covering must cover your nose and mouth and only be removed while eating, drinking or during water activities. Mask exceptions apply only to children under the age of 3. This is for the safety of our community, guests, and employees.
We highly recommend guests bring their own face covering with them on our tours. If forgotten, one can be supplied, upon request.
Vessels and Snorkeling Gear
ALL KST vessels including the complimentary snorkeling gear (snorkel, mask, fins and flotation devices), are cleaned and sanitized before and after every use, using protocols and products suggested by the CDC.
Waiver and Health Screening
Upon booking all passengers will receive a digital waiver along with a COVID-19 health waiver.
Required Temperature Check
All passengers will have their temperature checked before entering KST reservations office and retail store. All KST Staff – will have their temperature checked before clocking in for their shift. For the safety of our guests and staff, any guest experiencing a temperature of 100.4 degrees and higher and/or experiencing symptoms will not be allowed to visit us at this time and will either be refunded or able to reschedule for a later date.
KST asks that all guests work to maintain a social distance (6ft. or more) from other guests while on the property throughout boarding, de-boarding, and boat tour when possible. To ensure appropriate social distancing, KST is operating at reduced passenger capacity and will be limiting the number of people on all vessels.
Questions are the root of all answers.
