COVID-19 Small Business Announcement
Hello everyone! We hope you’re all remaining safe and healthy.
Many of you who have sailed with us in Saugatuck or South Haven have asked how you can support us right now. The simple answer is that by buying a gift card or one of our special gifts below, you can really help us weather this storm. This pandemic is putting a tremendous amount of stress on small businesses everywhere, including ours, and every little bit helps.
We also understand that you may have some questions about the 2020 sailing season and how we’re preparing to welcome guests on board. Here is what we’re doing to protect the safety of our guests and our crew.
• Easy Cancellation with Full Refund. Our cancellation policy has always been simple and customer-focused. Rest assured that you can still look forward to your vacation and book a sail without worrying about a cancellation fee if your plans change.
• Health Check. Before every tour we will personally check in with every booked group to make sure their party is healthy and symptom-free. If there are any concerns then we will rebook to a later date or cancel with full refund.
• Safety First, Always. We’re keeping a close eye on CDC and the State of Michigan guidelines and will adhere and adapt to them with uncompromising detail.
• Sanitation Efforts. All traffic areas on both boats will be thoroughly sanitized before each 2 hour sail.
• Social Distancing. We will limit passenger capacity to adhere to recommended social distancing guidelines.
We are also rolling out a couple of other programs that we’re very excited about including our Front Line Sailing Program and Connect With Our Crew Program. You can learn more below.
THANK YOU for your generous support. We can’t wait to sail with you soon!

Once this storm passes, our region’s nurses, doctors, hospital support staff, EMTs, grocery store workers, pharmacy clerks and other heroes are going to need a break.
Our community owes them a deep gratitude for getting us through this health crisis — and as a small and humble thank you, we’d like to offer a free sailing trip to these brave folks so they can enjoy a bit of time on the water as our special guests.
Please reach out to us directly at firstname.lastname@example.org to learn more. Or if you’d like to sponsor a friend or family member who is a front line worker, you can show your support in the form of a gift card by clicking the link below.
