2020 Seasonal Update

Please note that Covid19 restrictions have been lifted in the province of Nova Scotia, allowing us to re-open while following physical distancing. 

Physical distancing will be observed throughout the experience on Amoeba Sailing Tours. Our crew will be seating parties according to their reservation. We encourage couples and small groups to enjoy the extra deck space as we operate safely, by accommodating less passengers. At this time, provincial restrictions limit all group gatherings larger than ten. We will not accept reservations for groups larger than ten, and will inquire if you are all from the same household, as is encouraged. 

Private Bookings are available, where we can accommodate your function, while following physical distancing. 

Private departures and group bookings are frequent with our operations. 

Poor weather conditions may affect our operations, but frequent weather monitoring is part of our daily conduct, with guest comfort and safety our top considerations. In the event of suspected poor weather conditions, please call.

BOOKING

Kindly note that we do not have an office. We therefore are not able to issue physical tickets or confirmation numbers. You may make a reservation or ask us for with us in two ways:

 

BOOKING IN PERSON VIA OUR STAND

At the end of the wharf we have a small kiosk/stand with a sign, seats and a reservation book. This reservation book is constantly kept up to date and is how we prefer you to reserve with us. All that we ask is for you to leave your first & last name, and the number of people in your party. Our reservation book is updated several days in advance so it is perfectly acceptable for you to sign up for a tour in a few days time, but walk-ons and same day sign-ups are alright with us too! You can also find out if we have any upcoming private tours or adjusted departure times by checking the book or by reading the sign.

 

BOOKING VIA PHONE

You may also phone us at 1 (902) 295-7780 during our business hours 9:00AM – 6:00PM Atlantic Time Zone (UTC-04:00). Please note this is a cell phone so when you call, you may be catching the Captain and crew while they are out for a sail!

 

PRE-BOARDING

Please arrive ten minutes before your scheduled departure. We ask that you stand physically distant from the other parties as we will be calling your party name forward for boarding. 

\When it is time to board, one of our crew will gather you together and provide a short safety briefing, and review our procedures to remain physically distant. We will direct guests to their assigned seating. 

We depart promptly at our scheduled time, but don’t hesitate to give us a call if you are running late!

 

STANDBY

If a tour is sold out, we encourage you to sign up as a stand-by and arrive 10-15 minutes before the departure. Please speak to one of the crew upon arrival. We will allow for standbys if we have the capacity to safely accommodate./

 

CAPACITY

You are free to move around, stand and switch seats! 

 

FOOD & DRINK

Please note we have a fully licensed bar on board, with ice-cold beer, wine, and spirits as well as soft drinks. We permit you to bring your own food on board, within reason. Bringing your own alcohol is strictly forbidden.

 

SAFETY

Your safety while on board with us is incredibly important. We are inspected and licensed by the coast guard each year before we go in the water, and we abide by their stringent safety regulations, including wearing a lifejacket. Before you board you will receive a short safety briefing, and before we get well underway the captain will introduce himself, the crew and provide another short message for your safety. The lifejacket is not bulky and cumbersome.
