Your gondolier team checks the weather hourly and will determine if it is safe to cruise. In the event that it is a rainy day, you can choose to reschedule or request a refund. Just because it rains in the day does not mean it will rain at night. The weather in Florida changes quickly and most of the time turns into a beautiful evening after a little early rainstorm.

Please, don’t be. If you arrive late your tour might be cut short; it will end as previously scheduled so as not to delay the next scheduled cruise. We advise arriving 15 minutes early.
