Updated Procedures

Obsession III is ready to welcome you!

We are excited to have you onboard- albeit with a couple of changes!

The Obsession III staff and crew are ready for you to join us on board, please note that there are Federal, Provincial and Municipal regulations that we must follow for safe operations so there will be elements of our cruise that have been altered for your safety.

Our top priority is your health and safety- we will have reduced capacity, social distancing measures, potential bar and food option changes, and safety/sanitizing protocols in place.

There will be signage onboard and on the dock giving instruction to include but not limiting to; sanitizer stations, handwashing, washrooms, and lineups. All necessary walkways will be clearly marked, with directions as well as distancing reminders along any paths. Our staff will have proper PPE and as of now our first floor dining area is closed and dinner/brunches will be on our outdoor top deck only with our retractable roof open and all windows open.

Please note that:

  • All transactions will be debit/credit only
  • Entire group size must be booked under 1 reservation or will not be seated together. 
  • Maximum group size of 6 passengers.
  • Please adhere to social distancing practises.
  • Face coverings for all passengers ages 3 and up are mandatory on board. We will have disposable face masks for purchase at a nominal cost. Exceptions for those who have respiratory issues or a disability that prohibits a face covering. However, please contact us as soon as possible if this is the case. While seated and eating/drinking your face covering may be removed.
