Day Tours, Bioluminescence, and Classes

Due to high demand for our tours with very limited capacity, we only offer refunds with 48 hours notice by phone before the scheduled activity. No refund is issued when notice is given within 48 hours. 

Tickets are non-transferable and can only be redeemed by the party named on the ticket. Any tickets still available at the time of the activity can be purchased online prior to tour departure via credit card on a first come, first served basis.

If you are late and not at the meeting point by the time of your activity, Adventures in Florida reserves the right to sell your seat, without refund, to other ready, willing, and able patrons. 

No refund will be issued for late arrivals or “no-shows”. It is recommend that you try to make it to the meeting site at least 15 minutes before the activity.


For most activities, we will depart safely in rain. however, occasionally heavy rain, storms, or other unforeseen events may force us to cancel or postpone the activity. In that case, we will do our best to contact you promptly using contact information provided during your ticket purchase. Please remember that an afternoon/evening thunder and lightning storm is normal every day of summer in Florida. Storms usually pass within 30-60 minutes. 

Your guide will only cancel the activity when there are prolonged conditions that make departure unsafe.  We understand that many have just one day/night available to do their activity, so when postponing for passing weather is possible, we will do our best to depart tours when it is safe to do so.

Weather is beyond the control of The Company and refunds are not given due to weather. We do our best to run our activities as promised, but there are times when we have to delay them. 

Here is what to expect if there is inclement weather when you arrive for your activity:

  • We will wait 30 minutes past a lightning strike within 10 miles.
  • Activities may be delayed past initial launch time. Please be prepared to wait.
  • Many people have driven a long way, or have flights home, so we will wait for weather to clear and launch the activity when it is safe to do so.
  • Guests that do not stay through the 1st 1-hour weather hold will not be eligible for a refund. This means, if your activity was scheduled to depart at 9:00, you must be willing to wait until at least 10:00 due to weather. Guests who leave before this will not be rebooked, or issued a refund.
  • Guests that stay through the 1st 1-hour weather hold, but choose to not wait through a longer weather hold will be eligible for a refund, or rebooked next available activity.

In the event that an activity is canceled by your guide, guests will be issued a full refund or can rebook for a different day.
