Due to social distancing measures, all shared tour tickets will be allocated to a private section within a larger boat. This means that your group will be 2 meters from other guests and your driver, or a screen will separate you. Sections are for up to 4 or 8 people, however, for groups of 4 or 8 adults, we suggest booking an extra seat as seating is tight due to modifications made for social distancing. Please see our page on Covid 19 for more information.
