Booked as a last minute trip after we saw the tour advertised in a leaflet and it was well worth it. The guy at the kiosk was friendly, he processed the tickets fairly quickly and informed us where to go and what time. The advertisement stated 'Guaranteed dolphin watching' and we were not disappointed. After 20 minutes or so we... More

We booked the sunset cruise, upon boarding they want to take your picture, which they make a big thing of. Then you are reminded that the guys work for tips. Nick one of the crew was beyond rude. He never once spoke to us except to make a face and act like an idiot when one of the people in... More

Do not buy bracelets for unlimited drinks. I was told water was included and it was not. Would not have bought if I had known and no refund was given.

We had a great time and the staff was wonderful. We saw a few dolphins that were far off and would not come up to the boat but that's ok....the views were beautiful! My husband enjoyed the unlimited beer for 12.00 (wristband) ..not bad! :)

Florida sunset @ Clearwater Beach with Tropics Boat Tours is to not be missed. I did my due diligence reading a little into all sunset tour operators @ Clearwater Beach before booking with Tropics. I booked via GROUPON and suggest anyone to sign up on groupon website and take advantage of the deal when it's offered, paying $23 for 2... More

The Tropics Boat Tours is a family owned and operated business. To say this this family has customer service nailed is an understatement. I made my reservations on line. The whole process was quick and easy. I got an email confirmation within minuets. I suggest you purchase the parking voucher at the ticket booth at the time of your check... More

There were ten of us who took an afternoon trip. We were required to check in 80 minutes early. It was at least 90degrees and no shade. This was especially hard on the young children. The staff were very friendly. Each female was greeted with a plastic lei.There was an educational activity for the children where they received a dolphin... More

Unfortunately, my boyfriend and myself discovered that we both get sea sick while on this 2 hour boat ride. After we saw some dolphins, we spent most of the duration of the ride sitting on the floor below the sight line. The staff was very attentive to us, and they made our misery much less so. They provided us with... More

My husband and I had a great time. We bought a voucher from Half off Depot for $22.50 (for 2 people), so it was an excellent deal. We bought a $3 parking pass, checked in early and hung out across the street at Pier 60. You can board the boat 15 min. before sailing. Upon getting onboard, they give you... More
