Swap Orlando for the white sand of Clearwater Beach and enjoy a 1-hour dolphin encounter cruise while you’re there. The idyllic stretch of west Florida coast is home to pods of bottleneck dolphins, so it’s a great opportunity to hop aboard a sightseeing boat and see them in the water. The rest of the time, how you enjoy yourself is up to you. Sunbathe, swim, and make use of a meal voucher for a lazy seaside lunch before your return to Orlando.
  • Day trip from Orlando to Clearwater Beach

We had a great time, the tour guides did a wonderful job.
Bill the bus driver was very helpful and full of laughs. The guys on the boat were very helpful and friendly as well.

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.

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.

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.
