Accessible For Your Convenience
John Pennekamp Coral Reef State Park
"Encounter", our wheelchair-friendly snorkeling vessel, features wheelchair tie-downs as well as an oversized marine head (restroom). Our Glass Bottom tours are accessible to those in wheelchairs, however the vessel does not have oversized marine heads (restrooms). We are working to make our snorkeling and scuba tours even more wheelchair-friendly, but currently our disabled-persons policy is as follows: The disabled individual must be able to get in and out of the water on their own, or with the assistance of their accompanied helpers. The Captain of the vessel has the authority to prohibit any passenger from getting into the water, if he feels the sea conditions are not conducive to safe swimming. All of tour boats have at least one vessel equipped to accommodate the boarding of wheelchairs for our guests with special needs.
