We booked our tour at the last minute through a living social deal. The staff and crew were so accommodating, fun, and very informative. We saw a lot of dolphins close up and we really enjoyed the whole experience. I would recommend this boat ride.

We took the clearwater ferry from downtown clearwater to clearwater beach on a Sunday and decided to take a cruise with tropics...We had a great time! The crew was very tentative and funny! We saw three different groups of dolphins!! We really liked how they passively watch dolphins instead of chasing them down..and the beer is ice cold! We will... More

I called the company for a Sun night booking and Ashley advised me that there was no more availability for using vouchers on that night but the 2nd night we were in the Clearwater area we could use the 2-1 voucher. Communication with company was good. They contacted us by email and phone that the cruise was canceled due to... More

We were supposed to take the sunset cruise. However, the weather didn't cooperate! They were very good about rescheduling us to the next day (we were going to be flying out later that day!) We ended up on a dolphin cruise. It was fun! We saw dolphins. They do the usual photo op at the beginning of the cruise (why... More

we did the sunset cruise and it was beautiful. The crew was wonderful and engaging. The views of the sunset were spectacular. You can't help but be relaxed while on this cruise. The scenery was beyond beautiful and we even got to see a few dolphins. I definitely recommend this as one of the "things to do"while you are out... More

Went on sunset cruise April 17th. It was overcast and not much sun to see set but we had a great time anyway. Brian & Mike kept the drinks flowing and we brought our human dolphin call to attract the dolphins. Overall met great people and the 5 of us had a great time.

We had a wonderful time. Everyone was very nice. It was cloudy so we didnt see much of a sunset, but that didnt matter. All the crew was very friendly and accommodating. I would book another cruise for sure.

Fun ride! This is a great boat for families of all ages. The enclosed area is very large with lots of seating and large clear windows(I don't know how they keep those windows SO clean?) It is great for kids as they can safely walk around and look out both sides. You can also choose to go outside. There was... More
