Video: PVA’s Groundwater discusses Covid-19 and the passenger vessel industry

Yesterday, I talked with John Groundwater, executive director of the Passenger Vessel Association. Groundwater discussed the state of the passenger vessel industry, how his members are dealing with the coronavirus pandemic, and what PVA is doing to help operators during this crisis. PVA has 600 members, with 300 passenger vessel operators that own and operate 2,000 vessels.

    This is great! I am the Executive Director of Olympia Harbor Days Festival and Vintage Tugboat Festival. This information is helpful and will continue to be helpful. We have passenger vessels and tugboats that people tour. The festival is not until Labor Day Weekend and I am hopeful we can still have it assuming we can offer a safe experience aboard our vessels to our attendees. Please keep more information coming as new rules and guidelines are developed.

    I am going to share this on our FB page Olympia Harbor Days.
