COVID-19 Protocol

Brown Pelican (Pelecanus occidentalis)

Masks must be worn at all times while onboard the vessel.


Safety 1st and Always

Sea Goddess has always been a leader in safety. During this time, we are taking extreme precautions to ensure everybody’s health, safety and well-being as advised by the California Department of Health and CAL/OSHA.

At 101 ft. long, the Goddess Fantasy vessel is one of the biggest boats on the bay. We offer the best opportunity to practice safe distancing in addition to reducing our capacity to allow you even more peace of mind. This means you will still have room to roam about rather than being stuck in one place.

Here are the best practice actions we have put in place to help protect our guests and employees.

Control Measures & Symptom Screenings

Workers and guests are encouraged to stay home if exhibiting COVID-19 symptoms. Employees will have temperature checks at the start of each shift and will be sent home immediately if any symptoms are present.

Cleaning & Disinfecting Protocols

Traffic areas, including handrails and both restrooms, will be thoroughly cleaned and disinfected on a regular basis including before, during and after each tour. Hand sanitizer will be available for use.


We have decided to reduce our normal capacity of 150 by 60%, well above and beyond what is suggested. We will increase incrementally and only when safe to do so.  We ask that parties who arrive together stay with each other and distance themselves the recommended 6 ft.when moving about. We discourage all person-to-person contact while on board.

Face Masks & Gloves

Face masks are required for all passengers and employees. Please bring your own mask. If you bring gloves with you, please make sure to take them off the boat with you, especially if they are disposable as we do not want any harmful products ending up in the ocean. This also applies to facemasks – please take them with you as you disembark the vessel.

If you have any questions or concerns, please don’t hesitate to contact us prior to your tour. We look forward to seeing you!

Safety 1st and Always,

Team Sea Goddess
