Cancellation Policy

Cancellation Policy

Attention adventurers! Before departing on one of Florida Adventurer’s guided kayaking tours, please familiarize yourself with our cancellation policy. This is in place for your and other guest’s safety. We want your adventure to be as smooth and exciting as possible, so please take note before booking your tour.

Cancellations

Once you purchase a tour from Florida Adventurer, all sales are final, and there are no refunds. If you need to cancel your tour for any reason, we can rebook your tour as long as notice is given 48 hours in advance before your scheduled tour time. Unfortunately, if you do not give us 48 hours notice before the start of the scheduled tour time, we cannot rebook your purchase.

No-shows will not be able to rebook their tour. We understand that emergencies arise, but please notify us if you cannot make it, as other adventurers would love your space. Florida Adventurer also has the right to sell your seat if you are late to the scheduled launch meeting time. It is not fair to others in the group to wait; therefore, we will continue on the tour as scheduled. Unfortunately, if you are late to a tour, you will not be able to rebook.

Please arrive 30 minutes before departure, as there is a safety orientation that will be shown 15 minutes before departure. If you are late to the orientation or miss the orientation, you will not be able to attend your scheduled tour. If there is space available on a later tour that day, you are welcome to join. However, if our tours are full that day, you will not be able to rebook or receive a refund.

We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause. We ask that our customers respect this policy so that we can ensure everyone has a safe and enjoyable experience on our tours.

Wildlife cancelations

Florida Adventurer does not/can not guarantee wildlife/bioluminescent visibility. Florida Adventurer performs our wildlife and bioluminescent tours in areas historically known for great wildlife/bioluminescent visibility. This does not mean that we guarantee the visibility of wildlife or bioluminescence. These are wild organisms/animals found in nature and we do not control their movements or migrations.

If Florida Adventurer experiences a bioluminescence tour w/no bioluminescent visibility or a Manatee and Dolphin tour w/no manatee or Dolphin, we will happily offer you a raincheck that does not expire and will remain good until used.

Safety First

At Florida Adventurer, safety is always our priority. Under certain conditions, we reserve the right to cancel your booked tour due to inclement weather or other unforeseen circumstances beyond our control. If a tour is canceled by your guide for safety reasons (water level, weather forecast, unsafe conditions, etc.), your trip can be rescheduled. In such cases, we will notify customers as soon as possible and offer an alternate date/time for rebooking. We also reserve the right to refuse service to anyone who appears intoxicated or demonstrates behavior deemed unsafe by our guides at any given time during their tour without a rebook under any circumstances.

Weather Cancellations

Summer is Florida’s wet season, so rain is the norm. Tours will still depart in the rain. There is fun to be had in the rain or the sunshine. However, we will take another course of action if storms are on the horizon. Typically, storms pass quickly down here. At Florida Adventurer, we cannot predict the weather, but we have learned to wait it out. Therefore, we have instituted a waiting-out-the-storm policy.

Waiting Out The Storm

Storms in Florida tend to pass quickly. This is helpful for our guided tours with our daily afternoon rain showers in the summer. If you have a scheduled tour during one of these short storms, but you are willing to wait up for 30 minutes to one hour for the storm to pass, then we can happily proceed with your tour once the storm has passed. We want every adventurer to get the most out of their guided tour, so we want to keep as close to the schedule as possible.

However, in that period, if the storm lingers, then we can rebook any of the guests who have tried to wait out the storm to a time slot later that night (*depending on availability), or to a future date of your choosing.

Please remember typically, in the summer especially, these storms pass right on by, but if they don’t, and if you’re willing to wait with us, we can continue with the tour afterward. Like other outdoor businesses, Florida Adventurer offers rainchecks to return in the future. Of course, we cannot predict nor control the weather, so we may need to cancel your tour altogether. If so, we will provide you with another time to join us.

Please note:

  • We take the safety of our guests seriously and will wait for 30 minutes after any lightning strike within 10 miles before launching our tours.
  • While we understand that waiting out the storm may be frustrating, we ask that our guests be patient as we do our best to ensure a safe and enjoyable experience.
  • However, if a guest chooses to leave before the first hour of the wait, they will not be eligible for a raincheck.
  • In the event of a cancellation, we will do our best to rebook any affected guests, but unfortunately, there may not always be space available.

Please send requests for rainchecks or rebooking to info@florida-adventurer.com

Lightning and Other Hazards

Lightning is one factor that causes us to cancel our tours for safety reasons. We want all of our guests to remain safe, so if there is nearby lighting, high-speed winds, rough waters, or any other unsafe conditions, your guide will cancel the tour.

Weather is unpredictable. If Florida Adventurer cancels your tour due to inclement weather or unsafe conditions, we will rebook your tour to an alternate date or time.

Any Questions?

Florida Adventurer values customer safety above all else. We want all of our adventurers to feel comfortable and secure when booking with us. Our cancellation policy helps keep a timely and efficient schedule in place so our guests can get the most out of their tours. Whichever tour you choose, you will be struck with awe and wonder kayaking through Merritt Island Wildlife Refuge. It’s absolutely beautiful and something you truly do not want to miss. Be sure to arrive at the drop location on time. Florida Adventurer will track the weather, so you don’t have to. We look forward to adventuring with you!
