COVID-19 Protocols Updates

  • Consistent with NYC regulations (subject to change), these tours require passengers to present proof of vaccination prior to boarding. All passengers age 5 and over must show valid proof of at least two COVID-19 vaccination shots (except for those who received the one-shot Johnson & Johnson vaccine). The proof may be a vaccine card, a picture of your valid card, the NYC COVID Safe App, the Excelsior Pass app or an official immunization record from outside NYC or the U.S. but all proof must be accompanied by a valid ID. There are no exceptions for medical or religious reasons. Children under 5 are exempt; children between 5 and 17 must have proof but are not required to have a valid ID.
  • A negative COVID test (PCR, rapid) cannot be used as substitute for proof of vaccination.
  • Finally, when passengers are inside the cabin and not eating or drinking, they must wear masks.
