If you have booked via the phone, you can cancel up to 48 hours before your reservation date with no penalty. If you cancel within ghte 48 period before your reservation, you will be charged a Captain's fee of $70.


If you are scheduled for any of our tours and you do not show up, or call, you will be charged the full price of your tour.  If members of your party show up for a tour, and any members do not show, those who do not show, will be charged the full price of the tour. If you are charged full price for a no show, we may offer a Rain Check, please contact us in regard the No Show Rain Check, we will be happy to discuss terms.

Manatees Guaranteed

We have a rain check policy, stating, "if you do not see any manatees during your tour, we will give you a rain check to come back at half price".  Booking via rain check, as any other booking, is based on availability.  The Homosassa Manatee Snorkeling Center and our crew work very hard to ensure your tour is the best it can be, if it is not, please use your rain check, we want you to have a great time with us, and the rain checks never expire.


You will need to remember the date and time of your tour, and the name you booked under.  All rain checks will be noted on each reservation on our calendar.

Rain checks can be redeemed no sooner than 30 days after your original tour date. The reason for this policy is because we do not want it to happen again, waiting at least 30 days gives you the best opportunity to see the manatees again.  Rain checks are not valid on or during holidays, such as week of, Thanksgiving, 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.

Please understand, that we do want you to use the rain check, and we do not issue them very often.  We are very good at what we do, but wildlife does not care about our schedule, and we sometimes must issue a half off rain check.  

Issuing a half off rain check is an option we offer because we truly want our customers to enjoy the manatees and help spread awareness about them. 

Thank you
