  • I was looking for a boat tour where the kids could see dolphins AND get off the boat and interact with wildlife a little. This trip did not disappoint! They treated our girls very nicely and made sure...  more »

  • I love watching dolphins from a boat and this year I was so excited to visit an island while on a tour. We all collected shells and enjoyed the sunset.  more »

  • First off ,I will start with the booking.. we booked online, it was easy and straight forward. ( just make sure you get your receipt when you check in at the marina, because that is your ticket to get on the boat ) you can bring whatever you want to drink or eat on this cruise. The captain and his first mate did a great job.. we saw a small pod of dolphins. Once the boat is out of the marina you are allowed to stand up....( for some reason it makes me feel like I can see so much better ;)There is a bathroom on the boat and once you get to the island they will offer you snorkel equipment. We brought our swimsuits and changed in the small bathroom on the boat. They do have a variety of pops and bottled water, small bags of chips for purchase ($1 each)on the boat...we took the 5pm tour. We saw dolphins right away. This is the cheapest tour that we found, I would definitely do it again... it was just a small group on the boat so that was awesome for us as it was so much easier to move around when a dolphin is spotted. Tips are greatly appreciated...(tip em' well) PS...Eat at the marina cantina before you go... make sure you get Kris as your waiter he's great!! 👍🏻
  • It was short trip with dolphin watch, exactly what we needed for two small kids. Little stop on the island, where was nothing : )) but they could get their feet wet and search for special mussels. Boat is covered, so people sit on the shadow all the time, which i like. Chips and drink for $1 was pleasure, especially when kids started to be nervous. Craft was kind, speaking was not disturbing, but good, they play nice US country music. Nice rest before lunch : ) Everything was nice and peaceful. I am recommending this boat.
  • Saw 7 dolphins and trip was about 2 hours total. Crew took a nice picture for $5 and trip was so well worth the $20. Clean, had water and chips aboard for $1 and you could bring any food or drinks on yourself too. My daughter has been on several times for last few years and all GREAT experiences.
  • Seriously the best excursion on Clearwater Beach. My husband, myself and my two boys 11 and 9 had a great time! A must-do!
  • We had good a good time. We want to go back. We recommend it.it was fun..
