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.

What You Can Expect

Clearwater Beach Day Trip from Orlando with Dolphin Encounter Cruise

Dolphin Encounter

Leave your Orlando hotel and head west toward the sun-soaked Gulf of Mexico coast. Relax as you travel and listen to your driver talk about the region. A movie may also be played.

After 1.5 hours on the road, hop off your coach at Clearwater Beach, where white sand and clear seas await. Make the most of two hours of free time to soak it all up.

Then, head to the marina from where your hour-long dolphin cruise starts. Hop aboard the boat and cruise our on the calm waters around Caladesi Island and Clearwater to see pods of bottlenose dolphins leaping alongside the boat. If you wish, buy a wristband for unlimited onboard drinks.

When you return to the shore, enjoy 3-4 hours of more free time to bask on the beach, swim or do some watersports. Equipment, as well as beach chairs and sunshades are available to rent. Feeling hungry? Use your included meal voucher for a beachside lunch.
Later, return to your coach and travel back to Orlando. Your day trip finishes with a hotel drop-off.

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 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!
