Excellent trip! Love Clearwater and have been many times and was nice on our trip to WDW to have a day out of the parks and hit the beach! Met at Downtown Disney for the 2hr trip, coach on time, driver very informative - nice touch was a DVD film shown which made the journey go quick! Arrived at Clearwater and was given clear instructions however Clearwater is a small place! We were going to not have the included lunch so we could go to one of my all time favourite restaurants but I couldn't believe it the 'included' lunch on this tour was there!!!! The Post Corner Pizza Restaurant - you must have the Pizza!!! Clearwater Beach and promenades have had a makeover and the beach is gorgeous as always! We chose the Sea Screamer, no dolphins seen but it was a great trip round the bay - they offered us another trip as dolphins are guaranteed - the captain told us "this is the real world, not Sea World" which I thought was funny and of course true! Lovely day plenty of time for lunch, shopping, screamer and a swim - hassle free trip back - would recommend as a nice break from the theme parks!
We went on the deep sea fishing trip and had a good time.We just wish we had more time so we could have had the fish cleaned for dinner instead of giving them away.
Awsome!!! It was my 10 yr olds birthday the day of the fishing trip and was his best birthday so far! Entire crew was polite and helpful the entire trip. Would absolutally recomend this to anyone and may even make plans to go again next year.
The trip was flawless, our guide Dennis was awesome, and lunch was delicious.
The Orlando crowds were wearing me out. This day trip was such a great getaway for a day. I was worried we'd get bored having so many hours at the beach as we did not do any of the activities but we had no trouble using them up. Our driver was very professional and courteous, and the motorcoach was right on time and had comfortable seating and was nice and cool. We got to listen to a light rock/pop station on the way and back. When we got to the beach, driver instructions to everyone were very clear on when and where to meet back up. He dropped us off at the restaurant, so we could see where it was. By the way, it says a picnic lunch is included on some of the descriptions, but it is actually a voucher to go to a restaurant across the street from the beach. They have a shortened version of the menu with sandwiches, burgers, salads, pastas, etc that you can choose from. There are several souvenir shops near the restaurant if you are looking for shirts, postcards, or other souvenirs. This is not the best shelling beach, but the sand is so white and soft. We enjoyed walking down Pier 60 and taking pics of the pelicans. There is a marina across the street from the beach that is interesting to walk along as in the afternoon you can watch some of the fishermen cutting up their catches as the pelicans crowd around wanting some scraps. There is also a store and playground next to Pier 60 where kids can play and you can get a drink and other souvenirs and convenience type items. So glad we did the day trip. It was worth every penny.
Relax on the bus, have no hustle, relax from Disney. Really good lunch at the restaurant. Weather was bad, red flags, could not go swimming or go to the gulf of Mexico because of high winds and strong current (unusual). Still went to see some dolphins on the boat, just not on the Gulf of Mexico. And also saw some celebritiy houses. Still enjoyed ourselves, hadf a great time. Workers on boat - nice and funny!

A very well organized trip, with a larger than life tour guide that was not only amusing but approachable and very helpful. The trip on the Screamer was exhilarating and I would certainly recommend it to others. Lunch was really good followed by a fantastic stroll along the miles of snow white sandy beaches. A truly memorable excursion.
This was one of the highlights of our trip! The shelling tour was a great way to spend 2 hours. The captain was great and they gave us "gold coins" to hide in the shells on the island for the kids to find...it was very special! The lunch was very tasty, a good selection of items to pick. The beach was absolutely beautiful. Our tour guide was hilarious and the bus ride was very relaxing! We will do it again next time we go to Orlando. I highly recommend this, especially the shelling tour if you have kids!
Beautiful beach and a fantastic speed boat ride, even managed to see some dolphins. A great day out away from the hustle and bustle of the parks.
Even though it poured on us and we ended up going on the seascreamer as the other was closed, we had a fantastic time. They were very kind to us and let us go down below the boat because it was pouring and we had 2 little girls with us. I thought that was very kind and the dolphins were great!
Great tour operator, couldn't have asked for better!
The beach is beautiful with lots of shops and restaurants nearby, so there are lots of things to do.
We did the deep sea fishing. You will catch fish. Make sure you bring your Dramamine. Also bring small cooler. The ship's hand filleted the catch and iced it down. We cooked it up at the villa in Orlando. It was the best fish we had.
