If you cancel with in the 24hrs of your booking date, your credit card will be charged for your seats for the tour( No Rain Checks), unless we can sell your seats. If you make a reservation and cancel past the 24hrs of making your reservation, you will be charged and given a Rain Check that never expires.

Manatees Guaranteed

We have a rain check policy that if you do not see any manatees during your tour, we will give you a rain check only (no refunds), to come back for free, based on availability. There is always a chance of a no sighting of manatees, they are wild and not in a certain area everyday. Since this chance is very slim, we offer this policy. Snorkeling with the manatees and our crew really works hard to accommodate your tour, feel free to ask any questions we have not answered for you and your family. By receiving your reservation number and placing it in your check out box, or giving us you credit card information over the phone for your reservations. You accept our terms and policies of cancellations and no-shows. Please note, we are not here to keep your hard earned money, but we do have guide lines to go by so that all of our guest get this amazing opportunity to enjoy the manatees...



How to redeem your No Manatee RAIN CHECKS. If we do not see any manatees you will be given a rain check that never expires, this does not include the manatees behavior when we find them. The encounter is up to the Manatees. First, you will need to remember your tour date and time, your rain check will be noted on your reservation. Second, your rain check can NOT be redeemed until 30 days after your original tour date. The reason for this policy is , if we are having a bad week or 2 weeks, then the same situation can happen again. This policy is for your benefit. Rain check are not valid on or during holidays, such as week of, Thanks Giving, Christmas and or the week of New Years plus any 3 day holidays. Rain checks are non-transferable, must be original passengers-few acceptations may apply.

If by chance you think our rain check policy is a scam, then you are wrong. We DON'T have to offer you anything, this is a wild manatee and NEVER no guarantee. But we are SO good at what we do that if we dont SEE a manatee, that is because they are not here. WE are the only company in Citrus County out of 30, that cares to give you a rain check. Please if you have received a rain check, USE IT.... Thank you for supporting the Manatee program.
