We had a great time bringing in my mothers 60th birthday. Even though it was cold we saw Dolphins! They serve alcohol and the top of the boat has seating and the inside of the first level does as well. It was a lot of fun and worth the money.

Ticket agent Sarah very helpful. Almost two hour tour. Easy way to see shoreline homes, catch some rays while looking for dolphins.

My mom and I came to Clearwater Beach on a mother daughter trip and happened upon this boat trip. It was well worth it for the entertainment and we did see Dolphins. We also enjoyed the tour of the mansions and the narrative that was given. Great job! Thank you for a great time!

Had a great time on the boat was a little chilly but we saw dolphins. Thecrew was great and kept us laughing. Make sure you get your parking pass from tropic boat tours because you have to feed the meters every 30 minutes

We had a great 2 hour Tour. Saw lots of Dolphins and they put on a really great show - Jumping and Rolling as they followed our boat. And best of all, my Daughter got a Great Price on Florida Vacation Auction and gave us the tickets for Christmas. If your going to be in Florida, check out their website.

And I am a sucker for anything with the word dolphin in it! After sinking hundreds of dollars seeking a dolphin cruise where I saw more than just a fin popping up in the waves I had given up on them until the last day of 2015 when we clambered aboard the Tropics boat with Captain Aaron and his crew!...
