The health and safety of each guest is WhaleCoast Alaska’s first priority. One important Covid-19 safety measure we are once again implementing for 2022 is to require all guests to submit proof of Covid-19 vaccination between February 1 and March 1, 2022 – including any booster shots that are recommended by the CDC. We will follow the CDC guidelines in effect at the time of each tour, including mask wearing, sanitation, and social distancing. Tour directors, hosts, and tour volunteers must also be vaccinated. Federal government regulations currently require masking on all public transportation, including planes, trains, boats, and buses. If you are unwilling to submit proof of vaccination and follow recommended Covid-19 safety recommendations, you should not register for a 2022 WhaleCoast Alaska tour.
WhaleCoast Alaska has again modified our cancellation policy for 2022. We will allow guests who cancel their reservations through March 1 (for National Parks Tour) or March 15 (for All-Alaska Tour) to get their deposit refunded (minus a $10 processing fee to cover PayPal costs). By that time, you will have more information the public health situation outlook for the summer. We hope that our liberal cancellation policy encourages guests to register for the 2022 tours despite the uncertainties caused by Covid-19. If you have questions about Covid-19 safety and policy, please contact WhaleCoast Alaska.
