This was the first time we went on this Dolphin Tour. Although it is a tourist thing to do, it wasn't overcrowded and you could move about the boat very easily. The crew were fantastic and the skipper was very good at following the dolphins. We were lucky enough to see them feeding very close to the beach and after... More

Got a great deal on groupon for this boat but it would be worth paying full price for. We had a fantastic captain and staff , drinks (paid in addition to boat price) were excellent... The trip had us on our toes watching the dolphins swim with our boat ...

This boat tour with a party atmosphere was a highlight of our beach vacation. The waters are beautiful and scenery captivating. The boat guide was helpful in pointing out various sites (but the music continued to play making it difficult to hear at times). For an extra $12 you could get a drink band for unlimited beer, wine, or soda.... More

Pretty typical tourist experience in Florida, but nice crew, clean and well run. Beautiful day for a 2 hour dolphin watch cruise almost actually made the gulf, but it was a fun time, and worth doing once (especially with half off offer from groupon or living social) . Crew were all very helpful and accommodating.

This boat tour was great! We found a groupon and was able to go at half the price. We took the sunset celebration cruise - was about 2 hours long. Very calm and safe ride. Saw dolphins. Could buy drink bands for $12 for all you can drink. Party atmosphere. Would def recommend and go again. Guys are very friendly.

I took my two five-year-old grandkids on the noon time dolphin cruise. We had expired vouchers and the management gave me a super fair deal so that I could use the base value. The whole experience was very stress-free and very enjoyable. The kids had a blast and everyone was incredibly friendly and helpful. The kids saw dolphins and got... More

We had a nice time. Staff was very friendly, and we were pleasantly surprised to have been offered another tour free-of-charge. We look forward to returning another time. Thank you!

While planning our spring break trip to clearwater beach I came across a great deal for a family sunset cruise with Tropics boat tours so I thought it would be a nice little adventure to do in the evening with the family one night during our stay. The staff were great, friendly, and personable. We chose to purchase the arm... More

My girlfriend and I went to Univeral the day before our dolphin boat trip, and we had twice as much fun on the dolphin trip as we did at universal for 1/9th of the money. If you have kids or just looking to have a good time, I highly recommend this tour. Everyone was great, but the bartender Eric on... More

to make a long story short - my 2 for 1 tickets expired. I called to see if something could be worked out. Was told it could NOT - end of discussion. They did not offer anything - no discount on the 2nd ticket - no extension. I was floored. The weather hasn't been great but I still expected more... More
