Do you offer refunds?

What happens if there is bad weather/rain/lightning during our visit?

Marineland Dolphin Adventure runs our programs rain or shine.  We will only postpone our programs if we have a lightning strike within 5 miles of our facility.  If that happens, all guests are escorted to the nearest indoor location, and programs will resume as soon as the lightning passes.

If Marineland cannot complete the program by the end of the day due to lightning staying in the area, we will work with each group individually to offer the best solution for them.  We can reschedule, offer credit to rebook within 1 year, or if the program is canceled by Marineland Dolphin Adventure they may receive a full or partial refund based on what was completed.  Please note that the ticketing fee cannot be refunded due to weather.
