Everyone Asks Why Their Key Largo Tours Get Cancelled On Windy Days
Why do Key Largo, Florida Keys Tours get Cancelled During Windy Days?
When the winds blow from the East or South steady over 16+ knots with periods of gusts over 20 knots, the seas build very high. Many dive and snorkel boats can handle seas over 4 feet high, however the potential to tourist injury is with climbing the ladder. In seas over 4 feet high climbing a boat ladder is tricky and so we just simply all cancel everyone’s tours for safety reasons.
Trust me when we tell you that we hate when our cash register is running in reverse. Cancelling tours doesn’t cost the guests anything, as we provide full refunds. However, the tour operators loose a lot of money because the credit card service centers took a fee to run the sale and take from us a second fee when we refund the sale.
What We Did Today
