Red tide

Red Tide is an algae bloom affecting Florida’s waters from time to time. It is a natural event, usually local and beyond our control. For this reason, the regular cancelation policies apply. If a property is directly on the water (i.e. on a Canal, the Bay or directly Beach Front) and that specific property is severely affected, we will consider a case-by-case solution. Red tide may come and go anytime, so don’t be fooled by media reports.

Here is a link to current red tide samples by FWC.
