Inclement Weather Policy Florida is prone to thunderstorms, tropical storms, red tide, and even hurricanes. There may be times when normal family mini-camp schedules need to be altered due to inclement weather or unsafe water conditions, such as extremely high tides rendering the water unsuitable for snorkeling. In these instances, Clearwater Marine Aquarium has indoor classroom activities planned for participants. For mini-camps that include snorkeling or any other outdoor activities, we will adjust our outdoor schedules in the event of inclement weather or water conditions for the safety of our guests. We will make every effort to resume normal camp schedules on inclement weather days as soon as possible. Since Clearwater Marine Aquarium does not have control over inclement weather or water conditions, we cannot guarantee that guests in these mini-camps will snorkel or participate in an outdoor activity. Therefore, we will not issue full or partial refunds due to inclement weather.
