Do I need to make a reservation?
Yes, advance reservations are highly recommended; our tours do sell out. When making a reservation, book everyone in your party all under one reservation. This assures that your entire group will be all on the same boat (we have 6 boats.) If you do not book all under one reservation, you risk being on different boats!

What if I need to cancel?
If your plans change, please give us a call to cancel your reservation so we may open up the seats for another guest. You must cancel at least 24 hours prior to your trip for a refund.
What if it rains or the weather turns?
If we need to cancel the tour due to weather, we will contact you with as much advance notice as we are able.

In the event of inclement weather during a tour, rain checks will be available for a future tour. Destin Snorkel rain checks do not expire.
