Eco Tour Rules

Operators

All boat operators must be a minimum of 18 years old (14 years old with a Safe Boating Card and accompanied by a parent on the same boat).

Boat operators must produce, at time of the tour, either a state-issued driver's license or other state-issued ID that clearly shows date of birth.

Any boat operator born after January 1, 1988 must have a Florida-issued Safe Boating Card or other NASBLA approved Safe Boating Card. If you do not have a safety card you can obtain one by taking the free online course at BoatUS prior to your arrival.

Boat operators must bring a major credit card. Boat operators are responsible for any damage done to boats due to improper or unsafe boat handling or unathorized deviations from the tour group.

Boat operators must sign our standard Liability & Use Release upon arrival. We recommend viewing a copy prior to your visit.


Financial

Each boat has two seats, one for the operator and one for the passenger. During the course of the tour, you will be provided with an opportunity to switch seats, provided the initial passenger is over the age of 18 (14 years old with a Safe Boating Card and accompanied by a parent on the same boat).

The tour is paid in full at the time of the reservation. The fee will be refunded or the tour will be rescheduled in the event of bad weather.

No-shows will not be refunded.

To provide us adequate time to rebook, all cancellations must be made 48 hours prior to your scheduled tour date to receive a refund.

Boat on Calm Water

Miscellaneous

Alcoholic beverages are not permitted, and the guides have the right to deny access to the tour if they suspect any of the participants are intoxicated. No refunds will be made.

Florida law dictates that all participants under the age of 14 must wear life preservers. While not required, it is recommended that all participants wear life preservers while underway, particularly if you are not a strong swimmer. All participants, regardless of swimming capabilities, must wear a life preserver at all times when the weather or waterway conditions are less than desireable or as directed by the guide.

No messing around or wake jumping. Follow in a staggered single file until your guide instructs you otherwise. No swimming or jumping off the boats.

We do not condone harassment of the wildlife, and we employ ethical viewing strategies. Please, no feeding or touching the wildlife unless instructed to do so by your guide.

We strive to promote responsible and sustainable travel while providing a positive, authentic experience to all of our visitors. Please, no littering. Be aware of your surroundings and let's leave the environment better than we found it. Please help us to pick up small trash items if you happen to see any. Our guides will provide a container for trash. Thank you in advance for assisting us in keeping our gulf coast beautiful.

Have a terrific time, stay safe, and we hope your adventure will be one that you remember for years to come!
