We find a phone conversation is the best way to make a reservation as it allows us to gather the information needed to personalize your trip. To make a reservation please call Patrick Higgins on 239 595 4828. We may not be able to answer you immediately as we may be out with other guests, but please leave your name, number and dates you are interested in and we will get back to as soon as possible.

Reservations and Cancellation Policy
At the time of booking, a credit card will be required to secure your reservation. A deposit of $200 plus FL sales tax will be charged at this time. Once agreed we will send you a confirming email with all the needed details.

The balance can be charged to your card or paid in cash directly to your guide on the day of the tour.

Fortunately, we are in an area where weather rarely forces us to cancel a charter, however please note that for your safety and comfort it is at the Captain’s sole discretion whether to cancel a charter due to weather conditions or other safety issue. Should this situation arise you will have an option to re-schedule your charter for the next available date or receive a full refund.

Your commitment to your reservation is greatly appreciated as we may have turned away other guests to accommodate you. However TropicBird Ecotours realizes that situations occur that may necessitate altering travel plans. Our cancellation policy is as follows:

  • Cancellation more than 14 days before scheduled date, your deposit will be completely refunded.
  • Cancellation 14 to 4 days before scheduled date, you will be offered an option to re-schedule the tour to another date. However, if the tour cannot be rescheduled, your deposit may be forfeited or a voucher issued for future use for the deposit at TropicBird Ecotours’ sole discretion.
  • Cancellation 3 days or less before scheduled date, the complete charter fee may be forfeited or the trip re-scheduled at the sole discretion of TropicBird Ecotours.

All customer cancellations are subject to a $20 administrative fee. To make a cancellation or request a change of date you must either call 239-595 4828 and personally speak to Patrick or Martha or email Patrick@tropicbirdsailing.com.
