COVID-19 Policies

Dolphin Fleet COVID-19 Policies and Procedures

At Dolphin Fleet, we want all our passengers to know we are doing our part to protect you and others while visiting with us. Our number one priority is the safety and well-being of all while with us. Dolphin Fleet has developed additional protocols and procedures to maintain a safer environment for our staff and guests during this time. Some of these policies are requirements from the State of Massachusetts and others have been adapted as company protocol to ensure the safety of all on our vessels.


  • In compliance with the most recent CDC guidance and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts, we are no longer requiring our guests who are fully vaccinated to wear a mask. If you are not fully vaccinated, we recommend that you continue to wear a mask while onboard.
  • If you are not feeling well or showing any symptoms of COVID-19 you are prohibited from boarding the vessel. For more information please visit: CDC Coronavirus Symptoms
  • At this time no coolers, food, or beverages will be allowed to be brought on board due to the current conditions with the exception of infant needs.


Our staff has been trained on the protocols keeping a safe workplace and environment for both the passenger as well as the employees. They have also been trained on proper cleaning practices as well as contact free work etiquette with customers.


We have always been proud of the high standards we hold for the cleanliness of our vessels. We are now taking additional measures to maintain even higher standards with a rigorous process of cleanliness, sanitizing and hygiene. Here are the extra steps we are taking to provide you with the hygiene standards and service to keep everyone healthy:

Our trained crew thoroughly sanitizes the vessels daily. We use a medical grade disinfectant biocide to sanitize all high-traffic areas throughout the vessel. The crew will be sanitizing all handrails, handles, benches, and tables. A “fogger” will be used to disinfect enclosed areas such as the cabin and restrooms to ensure proper sanitation for your trip. High-traffic areas such as railings, counter tops, doors, and tables will be also be sanitized.


You will find our hand sanitizing station inside the main cabin and our restrooms on the lower level of each vessel for your convenience.


There will be times where social distancing will not be possible such as scanning tickets, or passing employees or other passengers on the vessel. We recommend any unvaccinated or at risk guests to continue wearing a mask in accordance with CDC guidelines. We have plastic barriers in our office and galley area to further reduce contact. Passengers will be sectioned off within a boarding line area roped off along the side of the pier. Flooring will be marked with 6-foot markings for spacing to encourage proper social distancing while in line to board. Boarding and disembarking of the vessel will be guided to ensure a safe flow.

·   Online ticketing for fast & contact free reservations

·   Last minute ticketing online
