It’s possible that a WildQuest program has to be cancelled due to conditions out of our control, such as weather or other adverse conditions. WildQuest will only cancel a program after a severe weather warning issued by the NOAA, (National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration) for our area, which means hurricane conditions are expected within 36 hours.
Since 1999 we’ve been running WildQuest, and we’ve cancelled only seven weeks due to wild weather.
