Key West Scuba Diving uses three different cancellation policies, depending on the specific Tour or Activity you choose. Please be sure to verify which one is applicable to your chosen experience prior to confirming your Booking.
This information can be found on every Experience we offer under the Cancellation Policy section.
Standard Cancellation Policy — If you cancel at least 7 calendar days in advance of the scheduled departure or commencement time, there is no cancellation fee. If you cancel between 3 and 6 calendar days in advance of the scheduled departure or commencement time, you will be charged a 50% cancellation fee. If you cancel within 2 calendar days of the scheduled departure or commencement time, you will be charged a 100% cancellation fee.
All Sales Final — If any Goods or Services are designated as ‘All Sales Final’ or with materially similar messaging (which includes but is not limited to all group bookings booked through our Group Bookings Department), it is non-refundable, and it will not be possible to change or cancel it after making a Booking for any reason.
Non-Standard Cancellation Policy — A minority of Goods or Services have other, different cancellation policies. In all circumstances, you must check the cancellation policy contained in the applicable Product listing at the time of your Booking, which is the policy that will apply to and govern the terms of your cancellation and any refunds.
Cancelling Your Reservation
To cancel your Reservation you must contact Key West Scuba Diving as soon as possible.
Cancellation Due To Bad Weather
If your Activity Operator must cancel due to bad weather and cannot accommodate you on another day, you will be issued a refund. Please be aware before issuing a refund, Key West Scuba Diving will confirm if this is the case. Please note, this is only a valid reason if the Tour Operator cancels the tour.
If Tour Operator Cancels Tour or Excursion
If for some reason a Tour Operator does cancel and cannot accommodate you on another day or at another time, you will be offered the trip issued a refund. Like cancellation for bad weather, Key West Scuba Diving will confirm if this is the case before authorizing a refund.
- No refunds are available once an Experience has commenced, or in respect of any Product’s package, accommodation, meals, or any other services that have started to be utilized.
- Wherever possible, refunds are handled via our automated online system. In some cases, your refund request will require verification from various parties, and that work is done exclusively via email.
- Approved refunds will be issued to your original method of payment within thirty (30 days) from the date of the approval.
- Approved refunds will be subject to a 10% administrative fee.
- Booking fees are non-refundable.
Adjusting Your Reservation
- Contact our office directly to make any adjustments to your reservations. If you call and reach voicemail, please leave a message including time, date, number of guests attending, and the name of the Tour or Excursion.
- If you adjust your reservation, a voucher will be issued and applied to your new reservation date. Subsequently, a revised confirmation will be emailed to you.
- If the newly adjusted Activity is canceled for any reason, a store credit will be issued. A non-refundable change fee of $25 per adult ticket will be applied at the time of reservation change.
Showing Up Late
If you or a member of your party shows up late and are consequently not able to participate you will still be responsible for the full amount of the Tour, Activity, or Excursion.
If you, or a member of your party, do not show up for your Tour, Activity, or Excursion you will be responsible for the full amount of reservation.
Unsatisfactory Activity Experience
If you experience an issue of any sort with a Tour, Activity, or Excursion you have booked via Key West Scuba Diving, immediately bring this to the attention of the Tour, Activity, or Excursion’s operator. Make your concerns and complaints heard with the person in charge so that you may reach an agreeable solution immediately. Do not wait until you return from your vacation. If for some reason you feel a partial or full refund is merited, you must make this known the same day of your Tour or Excursion.
Payment Dispute Policy
- If You have any concerns or disputes about the Service, You agree to first try to resolve the dispute informally by contacting the Company.
- If you run a chargeback against our company our accounting department will vigorously defend it.
- You agree that we are no longer obligated to perform the Services you charged-back, even if we win the chargeback.
- You agree that we will immediately cancel the service previously paid for by the fee which you have disputed.

But in such a case the exclusions and limitations set forth in this section shall be applied to the greatest extent enforceable under applicable law.
The laws of the Country, excluding its conflicts of law rules, shall govern this Terms and Your use of the Service. Your use of the Application may also be subject to other local, state, national, or international laws.

Severability and Waiver
If any provision of these Terms is held to be unenforceable or invalid, such provision will be changed and interpreted to accomplish the objectives of such provision to the greatest extent possible under applicable law and the remaining provisions will continue in full force and effect.
Except as provided herein, the failure to exercise a right or to require performance of an obligation under this Terms shall not effect a party’s ability to exercise such right or require such performance at any time thereafter nor shall be the waiver of a breach constitute a waiver of any subsequent breach.
These Terms and Conditions may have been translated if We have made them available to You on our Service.
You agree that the original English text shall prevail in the case of a dispute.
