As Covid-19 numbers continue to decrease in the Boston area, Classic Harbor Line (CHL) is actively readying to set sail! We will be staring up operation on July 9th!
Guests can book tickets now with greater ticket cancelation flexibility.
Also, there have been many updates to our operating practices that guests should review:
Classic Harbor Line will be closely adhering to the guidelines set forth by the Passenger Vessel Association, who cites the CDC guidelines and gives specific guidance to our industry on how to safely operate under Covid-19 conditions.
Additionally, we will be following the NY State Reopening guidelines as they pertain to our industry. Please also note that the guidelines we adopt may be changed over time by governing authorities and we will therefore adjust accordingly. For any major changes, our previously booked guests will be notified.
Do I have to wear a mask the entire time?
Masks are required at boarding and disembarking for all those over the age of 2. We ask that masks be worn by our guests as much as possible. To imbibe in food or beverages, you may remove your mask. This can only be done while you are in your assigned ‘zone’ or ‘table’. Your assigned ‘zone’ or assigned ‘table’ is for you and your group only. If you leave your ‘zone’ or ‘table’, a mask must be put on.
What is the air ventilation like?
All assigned seating on the schooner is in open air on the outer decks. When purchasing for Northern Lights, please let us know if you would like to be assigned an indoor table or an outdoor area. Outdoor seating of Northern Lights is available under a covered awning as well as full sun. Indoor seating has an enclosed space with air conditioning. The forward doors may be opened to provide a breeze through the space.
How much space is between me and the next person?
This will vary based on attendees. Do note that facial masks are required by each guest, capacity is reduced by 50%, and private ‘zones’ or private ‘tables’ will be designated. At any point that social distancing guidelines are encroached upon, we ask guests to put on their masks. Additionally, anytime a guest leaves their designated ‘zone’ or ‘table’, we require that they don their facial mask.
Can I choose my assigned ‘Zone’ or ‘Table’?
Our ticketing system will space bookings as they come in based on size. You can make requests (i.e. port, starboard, forward, etc.), and we will do our best to accommodate you, but cannot guarantee it will be available. All ticket buyers on Northern Lights need to state their preference, Indoor or Outdoor. If you choose indoors you will be assigned to a ‘tables’ in the main salon. If you choose outdoor seating you will be assigned a ‘zones’ on the top deck with seating to accommodate your group size, prioritizing covered seating areas first.. All tickets on the schooners will be assigned to ‘zones’ on the open deck.
Can we move around the boat? If on the Northern Lights, can we go to the outer forward deck?
Yes. You may need to use the restrooms, or you may decide to explore the forward outer decks on the power yacht. To do so, make sure your facial mask is on and be courteous of others, creating the best case social distancing practices.
How many guests will be on the boat?
All excursions will be at a 50% capacity or less. Adirondack III, which is certified for 41, will have no more than 20 guests. Northern Lights will have 40 to 56 Guests as her max capacity depending on the group sizes who book. If you opt for a ‘Public Buy-Out’ it will just be you and your group (Only offered on Adirondack III).
How often is the boat sanitized?
The boat is sanitized between every sail, including all high-touch points (handrails, doorknobs, chairs, table tops) and bathrooms.
