Strollers are strongly advised for small children. Please remeber that even small children will need to be masked to be in the enclosures with the bats.

I have a member in my group that is using a wheelchair, rollator, scooter, or the like. Is Lubee handicapped accessible? YES. Mobility devices can navigate with little to no difficulty. We are on hard packed grassy field, so the going can be a bit bumpy. The distance from the Front Office to the Bat Viewing area is a short length (about 300'). If our guests would prefer to skip the grassy ride, they can opt to drive directly to the bat viewing area after check in.

The day has been forcasted for rain should I cancel? Thats up to you. Should the day be forecasted for rain, the tour may still be facilitated. We suggest proper footwear and outerwear. During the rainy season it is also a good idea, to spray yourself with bug spray before you leave your vehicle.

Can I bring my service dog to attend me during the VIP Private Tour? Sorry NO. Service dogs are prohibited from entering into the bat viewing area. Bats are a prey species and have taken erratic flight when dogs are near, causing death to our bats. We regret that we are unable to accommodate service dogs during the VIP Private Tours. During Lubee events, licensed service dogs are allowed on property. Emotional Support Animals are not allowed on Lubee property.
