Group Tour Policies

Group Size

A minimum of 15 participants is required for a reserved program. Groups with fewer participants may be booked for a minimum program fee equivalent to 15 paid admissions.
There is no group size maximum for a tour. We can work with you to make sure we have enough tour locations and educators for your experience. Please keep us in the loop as to how many attendees to expect.


Field Trips take place rain or shine. Please encourage your group to dress appropriately for outdoor activities.

In the event of severe weather... During heavy rain or severe weather we may cancel your tour the day of the tour by calling the phone number you provide. Due to Florida's quickly changing forecasts a decision to cancel will never be made prior to the date of your tour. If we cancel your tour due to severe weather, we will make every effort to reschedule your group on an alternative date.
