We have a commercial boat tour business. Not only have we been shut down but between Gove. Ige’s and the DLNR’s regulations, we are allowed to take only 10 people on a boat no matter the boat size. There are over 300 boat owners throughout the island and many are Coast Guard certified to take over 100.

Being restricted to such outrageous limitations does not even allow us to go back to work. Local businesses deserve better than this!
