Absolutely wonderful!! The beach was beautiful. The cruise was great. All of the staff were awesome. Would do this again in a heartbeat.
The trip to Clearwater was amazing, the weather brightened up in the afternoon for the dolphin tour, and we saw many dolphins in their natural habitat. It was a shame we had little time to explore Clearwater, but I would go back again anytime. The driver and Lorrie were great and have us information where to meet etc. and it was a great day. Thank you
My family and I really had fun on this trip. It was definitely the highlight of our trip to Orlando. The sights were beautiful, the captain was entertaining and the music kept everything upbeat. We didn't get to see any dolphin's up close on our trip but we did see several jump out of the water. My 8 year old daughter was thrilled. Loved it! Would highly recommend.
My 8 year old son and I went on this tour and it was AWESOME. Clearwater was beautiful. There were alot of things to do on the beach. We did parasailing right before taking our dolphin cruise. While on the dolphin cruise sure enough we saw dolphins and there were alot of them. It would help if you have a high speed camera so that you can capture great photos of them jumping out the water. I am really happy that I booked this for us to do. The only reason why they didnt get 5 stars is because the bus was very cold.
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.
Tour would have been ok but for the weather. Had freak rainstorm the entire day which resulted in our dolphin cruise being cancelled. Nothing much to do in Clearwater other than the beach, which was a 'no-no' on the day we visited due to torrential rain. So we visited Marine Aquarium instead, fab!
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!
