Know More about this tour

After pickup from select Orlando hotels, your day of fun in the sun begins as you head west to Florida's Gulf of Mexico coast.

During the approximate 1.5-hour bus ride, listen to a little bit of history on Clearwater from your driver, hear about what you'll find when you get there, and watch an onboard movie.

When you arrive at Clearwater Beach, you'll have a couple of hours to spend how you wish on the beach, and then you'll head to the marina for your one-hour dolphin-encounter cruise. Watch for native bottlenose dolphins -- the sea's most lovable creatures -- as they play in their natural habitat. Snap photos of them jumping and swimming along the boat, and admire views of the beautiful shorelines of Clearwater and Caladesi Island. A $10 wristband can be purchased on board for unlimited beer, wine, vodka punch.

Back on the beach, enjoy approximately three to four more hours of free time to do as you wish -- swim, bodyboard, work on your tan or go for a walk on the sand. Beach umbrellas and chairs, as well as watersports equipment, are available for rent from a stand on the beach, if you wish.

When you're ready to eat, simply use your lunch voucher to pick up your lunch and enjoy a picnic on the beach.

In total, you'll spend about seven to eight hours in Clearwater, depending on the traffic from Orlando. The exact departure time of your dolphin cruise may vary depending on the day.

  • It was a really cool tour. The water was really warm and Clearwater is a very nice city! I bet it is nice to plan on a longer stay there. The beach, however, has a lot of sea weeds in the water and not many waves, if you like waves. I was also expecting something more wild. It was all in the city of Clearwater. I paid for lunch and it was very nice. Crew very nice as well.

  • When booking this trip, I was given confirmation that from the hotel I was staying at I would be able to be picked up from my hotel. But when we made arrangements to be picked up we were told that our group would need to walk 30 minutes to a shopping center while everyone else who booked this trip received a pickup from their hotel. The main reason that we asked for pickup and drop off from the hotel was because we had a person who sufferers from severe arthritis that was traveling with us. It seemed as though This company was more interested in booking the trip and getting our money than meeting out request. We spent more time on the boat than on the beach and the dolphins were scarce. Would have rather spent the day on the beach instead.

  • Lunch was okay beach wasn and #39;t amazing either but defo worth a visit. Got to see some wild dolphins in the bay playing with the boat and the guide was very friendly and informative.

  • This day trip was perfect! It started with the people that I spoke to on the phone, the bus driver and the captain and his crew!! We really enjoyed the day! Thank you!

  • Lovely day out, the Rep. Red was very helpful and informative of where to go and produced a map of where to meet and times. He was approachable throughout the tour and helpful in suggesting places to help me with my injuries. He was fun and made sure everyone had what they needed. A great day with seeing Dolphins on the tour in their natural habitat. Thank you Red.

  • This tour was amazing!

  • the pre paid lunch is collectable in probably the worst restaurant in Clearwater, all food is just the cheapest frozen food possible re heated, there are far better near by, you are dropped of at 10.30am, told to be at the boat by 11.30 and then left waiting in scorching heat with no shade for over half an hour, you are dropped at one end of Clearwater at 10.30am so they can show you where the restaurant is!!!! to walk back to the other end of Clearwater for the boat trip, to walk back to the other end for lunch, to walk back to the other end for pick up for journey home. As far as we could tell you are picked up far to early just so they can drop off at the aquarium on the way. If we went back we would do it ourselves, there is loads of parking, plenty of restaurants to choose from and you can arrive on the day and pick from umpteen boat trips.

  • Awful awful awful. Rude staff, expensive waste of time! Would not recommend this to anyone~~ save your money!

  • The boat trip was excellent. Saw dolphins a shark and turtle. Clearwater beach is beautiful - white sand for miles with plenty of restaurants. The coach trip was dreadful. A clueless guide who caused delays, had limited knowledge and gave out conflicting, unclear info. 6 hours on a bus - not good.

  • it was perfect.
