While there is still much uncertainty with respect to the impacts of COVID-19, the safety and well-being of our passengers and employees remain our top priority. In line with the direction provided by health experts and government officials we have adapted and revised our charter offering, policy, and procedures to comply with all CDC guidelines in order to keep our passengers safe, healthy, and comfortable. We will continue to carefully evaluate this complex and fluid situation and make adjustments accordingly.


TFD Adventure Co. has always been safety oriented in all aspects of boating. Our crew has been extensively trained to put the safety of our guests first and foremost. We have added a comprehensive list of procedures to ensure cleanliness and compliance. Please see the list below containing our updated policy and procedures.
